Photography Now & Then #41
Today’s photo1: Mist covered Norristown Mountain, Pope County, Arkansas, February 10, 2018 (Apple iPhone 6s)
Today was a rainy, misty day, starting out at around 50°F and dropping 10°F by the end of the day.
Photo Favorite2: Dead wood (probably Utah juniper) on The Hogback of Utah Highway 12 in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (Pentax K-3 II) 37°50’22″N 111°25’16″W
Between Calf Creek Recreation Area and Boulder Town is an internationally famous stretch of byway known as “The Hogback.” As the asphalt clings to this thin razorback ridge of slickrock, the terrain spills steeply off to each side toward winding creeks and canyons below, where cottonwoods provide ribbons of green, gold, or gray depending on the season. Driving here is slow and cautious, but the vistas are incredible
