A Wildly-flowered Road
Amboy Crater, 2008
This wild playground
saturated with beauty
and vibrantly colored
would not exist
without this gift of life
of which we have been tenderly kissed
I shot these three photos as a study in light on the same subject during different times of day.
Interesting how a zigzag of light against a shadow will catch your eye while you look away from the low sun. Anticipation, is paramount; the shadows roll over the mountain canyons and ridges quickly. Observe it then. Blank everything else out and don’t look away. What you will see will never be the same again. Don’t miss your moment!
What can you say?- These little guys hide by staying ~real still~. They eat ants and squirt acrid blood from their eyes when attacked. I think. I’m not an expert– However, it’s just a lizard anyway. Don’t eat!
My wife didn’t believe the colors were authentic, until we spent some time watching a sunset there.
