Sometimes It's the Mood

Sometimes It's the Mood

While this photo looks nothing like the real scene and nothing like the original photograph, it does a better job of conveying the surreal sense of peace of that moment at that place than either.

The sense of vast vistas, of human presence, of near civilization yet deep in the heart of nature, the limitless sky and the curve of the land letting me go all the way to the horizon provide the contrast needed to bring each piece into focus in the whole.

I'll be shocked when I go to this place again and it doesn't look like this picture but I know it will feel the same way even so.
