Canyonlands

Subdued Blue

Subdued blue sky
ponders a change
from winter to new spring

Ode to Edward Abbey (5)

Spirit hovers
over lonely canyons
in dearly beloved country

    Excellent! I love this post! I am thinking Abbey is not the only one who loves the desert.

    Those colours in the rocks offset by what you have so aptly described as subdued blue – wow! Just magnificent. Thanks for sharing your perspectives of this amazing landscape, in words and photos, Monica.

    Subdued blue sky, and it seems so Monica, looking down at the grandeur below… I don’t know what it is about ‘rock’ shapes, pulls at the imagination I suppose … I really enjoyed your words my friend..xPenx

  6. A beautiful set of pics of the canyons Monica , an insight into a landscape we dont have here in Australia , they intrigue me as they remind me of pics I have seen in old western movies , canyons and mesas.
    Thanks

      Hi Chloe, Thank you very much! It’s great that you visited these out-of-the-way places – unusual even for Americans to vacation there.
