Default Flora -- One of my shots from Bryce

This is a scanned 35mm negative. It is an old shot and quite grainy (film equivalent to digital noise).

Mtngal showed us a beautiful shot from Bryce Canyon National Park. Here is one of my shots from that same park. This is taken at the top of the Queen's Garden Trail. We hiked all the way down to the canyon floor and back up again. You guess which was the hardest!

Great shot.
And, another great example of the tenacity of plants in trying to survive under
extreme conditions.


I'm hoping that someone might post a photo or two from the Joshua Tree area.

One area of the country that I haven't had the opportunity to explore.

Love it!

Isn't hiking in Bryce fun? The picture I took was taken toward the bottom of the "canyon", also, though a different trail. It's as hard to walk down as it is to walk up, just hard on different parts of your body. Looking at these pictures makes me want to go back!

That tree is very stubborn to say the least. Nice capture.

It's funny how we pay so much more attention to noise today than we ever did during the film days. Grain was part of it (even if using 100 ASA films). Today people want to see images that are absolutely noise-free. IMO, noise adds character.
