Hi, Kjell! Hope all is well in Sweden, was just thinking about you yesterday before I saw your post.

An interesting perspective, one I hadn't thought about. I was more thinking of it in terms of the literal, that these walls are incredibly beautiful and substantial. However, they aren't any more lasting as walls built by man - water, time and earthquakes can take down both.

You're overthinking this one!! It's just a path way with very high walls.

And the fallen rock didn't crush him. Is someone else under it? Maybe a former Enron employee or someone with his retirement funds invested in Lehman Brothers?

Harriet, I'm OK as is Sweden, but there hasn't been much development in my photography. I'm impatiently waiting for my tax return, so I can get a K5. My K20D doesn't focus very well and it's to old to spend money on for service. But I'm lurking the forum anyway, hope to be back more as summer arrives.

Kjell

You'll love the K5, I've been very happy with the second one I got. My K10 and the first K5 had some AF issues which were extremely frustrating. I spent so much time taking sample/diagnostic type shots with the first K5 to try to figure out what was going on that I didn't enjoy the camera. I wanted to nail down what caused the AF issues before sending it in for repair and never could - so I was not unhappy when it turned out to have stains. This new one has made photography fun again. Can't wait to see your pictures with one.

A beautiful and compelling series - such great use of lines and textures, and some surprising. lovely colors as well. Thanks so much for sharing! (ps - i agree with the identification of your shooting stars...)

Kjell - Great to see you are still well, and hope you are able to get the K-5 soon, (and will post some of your great photos. Until then, you can always use the K20D with manual focus...)

Great series, all of them are great but nr 1 makes the biggest impression on me.

Thanks for posting these

Ronny

Thanks for the compliments, Mole.

Ronny - the first one is my favorite one from the week's trip, I'd put it up there as one of my top 5 for the last year. Bryce is one of my favorite national parks - even more so than Zion. I can go back many times and never get bored.

Thanks, GW. The funny thing is that since I really like the first one, I found myself over the weekend trying to repeat that look at a totally different location. It didn't work at all well - I think I need to go back to more spontaneous shooting, rather than trying to shoot to some standard, even (or especially?) if its my own. What works one place does not necessarily work somewhere else.
