    Default Solitary Admiration

    The day was extremely hot and completely windless, but I had plenty of water and wasn't worried. The land looks completely dry but really isn't. I know of a spring only 2-3 miles from here. I don't see any animals or birds here though, maybe I'll see some nearer the water. About the only things living here are myself and some sagebrush, and only I can admire the scenery.



    Camera: E-3
    Lens: 14-35mm at 14mm
    Shutter speed: 1/400
    Aperture: f8
    WB: 5300K
    ISO: 100
    Metering: ESP
    Good shooting,

    I love that solitude, EB. There's nothing like the feeling of being out there (whether desert, mountains, forest, whatever) and not being able to see or sense any human activity. Lovely photo, by the way. Gives a real sense of the grandeur and the stillness of it all.

    I, too, know what you mean about being in such open spaces all alone. But, "through the magic of photography," the rest of us get at least a glimpse of what you are seeing there in that great country. Thanks for your wonderful and well-considered landscapes! ~Ken

    From experience, I can tell you that while it seems you're completely alone, someone always knows you're out there. It's a wonderful place to explore, especially if you bring a camera. You captured the colors and vegetation well.

    EB -
    As always you've captured your subject superbly and have managed to make me feel like I'm standing there. Although I've not commented on your others, thanks for sharing and the great commentary attached as well. Looking forward to the rest of your trip's postings!
    Best Regards, Jim

    Thank you. I think that the wide spaces and the solitude are the things I like best about the west.

    Thank you. You're probably right, in our overcrowded world we're probably never really alone.

    Thank you. I was born in mountain country myself and that is also solitary though it has a lot more life in it.
