This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 10 images chosen by readers from my photo files including sandstone, wildlife, and fall colors.
Sherry and David chose #9000. In late May, this year, the last light brightened part of Wotans Throne while some remained in shadow. Seen from Cape Royal North Rim Grand Canyon.
Jim and Diana chose #1889, “the year North Dakota (the state we are currently in) was admitted to the Union.” So this doesn’t look anything like North Dakota because this redrock, similar to the Southwest but also with lush green vegetation is in South Africa. Golden Gate Highlands National Park actually. Their choice was one of seven in a panorama, so you get both.
Pam and John chose #1409. They like to hike in canyon country in the desert southwest (or any kind of country for that matter). If they ever get to Illinois I encourage them to hike in the sandstone canyons of Starve Rock State Park. This is a place I grew up loving and returned in 2012 when back for a high school reunion.
Diane and Nigel chose #1509. These fall colors are from the same trip back to Illinois as above.
Patti and Abi chose #450. I make my own espresso every morning. This stove top espresso pot bought at a thrift store in 2009 is a little different than my current model which doesn’t steam milk.
Yogi chose #7500. Zebras, much like horses, stand nose to tail to help keep the flies off their faces. These two were seen from an underground birdhide in Addo Elephant National Park South Africa in March 2014.
Jeff chose #918 for Fran’s birthdate. My one boat trip on Lake Powell was for someone’s birthday. A huge lake with infinite side canyons like this in Dry Rock Creek Canyon. I was saddened to think of what all was buried under the waters and will never go on the lake again.
