A man builds a fine house; and now he has a master, and a task for life: he is to furnish, watch, show it, and keep it in repair, the rest of his days.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lewis Falls & fisherman: this shows more detail of the falls as well as the presence of the fisherman who wasn’t visible in the above photos. This gives an even greater perspective on size. He was in the other photos just not visible.

For the Love of Geography – Cirque

A cirque is a semicircular shaped bedrock feature high on mountainside partially surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs. Cirques are created by the advancing and retreating of glaciers. The basin becomes deeper and wider in diameter each year as it continues to be eroded. An interesting feature of a cirque is the tarn or glacial lake which results from melting glaciers.


Cirque, Grand Teton, Wyoming

Sometimes multiple cirques will form, the rock in between is an arête, a steep ridge dividing the two cirques. When three cirques form the result is a glacial horn (or pyramidal peak) such as the Matterhorn in the Alps or Irene’s Arête in the Tetons.

In Picasa I first adjusted the lighting, adding highlights and shadows. I then removed color and added warm tones. Finally I applies the HDR-ish filter giving the photo an antiqued look.
