This is one of my favorite photos as this captivating and mysterous Nebraska sunset will be with me forever. It was almost like a 'Forrest Gump' moment for me- because as this glowing, fire-ball began to set, it began to dissappear, but to where? There was no hill for this fire-ball to hide behind, nor any clouds. So, how does it get smaller and smaller? Who or what swallowed it? Simply impressive.

 Next, a balanced rock in Arches National Park, Utah. Indeed an impressive sight, but how it compares to a balaced rock equally impressive and peered at from all angles by people in Mahabalipuram, India. See a photo of that rock, here.

How the Balanced Rock balances?


For the next shot, I had a real fun time wrapping myself up in my Lion King blanket and another comforter to warm my head while laying face up looking into Bryce's sky full of stars. So many stars- more than I could ever see in Rochester and more than I could imagine. They are of course, always there, but away from civilization so far, so many more are not hidden by the lights of man. I was dead tired while looking up into this night sky, but at the same time could not sleep as the twinkling stars intrigued me so. Seeing the photo Krishna captured int his pitch black canyon may trick you into thinking it was not really so dark, or possibly someone the stars came out at dusk or dawn. This is far from true. It was pitch black minus the moonlight. Yes, the moonlight could guide us from the parking lot to the view point, but it was still dark- this photo somehow makes it seem like one could still walk freely in the nightscape. Not so true, unless you have cat eyes!

Even more impressive that Krishna captured this lightening bolt in Zion near the lodge area. I have captured this on my IPhone video, and while trying to pause it on this very lightening strike, realize it is less than one second! And, he captured it! Not only patience can capture this, but quiet study and perfect timing.

Krishna has also added photos of our visits to Kanchipuram - temples, sari weavers, and street views- earlier this year to the India 2009 photo albums.

Arches National Park

Possibly one of the most well photographed rock formations in Arches National Park, Utah is Balanced Rock. Balanced Rock is a free standing formation of a base with a large upright rock seemingly balanced on the top. The snowcapped La Sal Mountains provide a backdrop to Balanced Rock and The Windows Section of Arches National Park. A full day can be spent in Arches walking a few of the many tracks and exploring the wonders of nature. Arches National Park is situated near Moab in Utah, USA. http://www.wildlifeworld360.com
