Rise by catch---22 Rise by catch---22
Such is the way of the world
You can never know
Just where to put all your faith
And how will it grow

Gonna rise up
Burning back holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold

Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
And suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole...


[link] Rise - Eddie Vedder






(I've finally had some time to work on my image backlog. this is another from the summer... looking across the valley and up towards black bear pass... shot while on the way up Red Mnt 3. south of Ouray, Co.)

What a wonderful shot. The light bits of snow really contrast with the greenery.

I'm glad I can "help." The only reason I asked is that the vividness of the colors gave it that slightly surreal quality that HDR stuff can have. But the image was incredibly sharp, so it didn't "look" HDR, if you know what I mean. Anyway, great shot, I'll leave it at that. ;)

I need to bite the bullet and get through those images. this was from a day of wildly different light conditions as we moved from pass to pass. this was early evening with party sunny... the greens in the images a few either side of this one are kind of wild.

This is so very different. Did you have another camera?

It is a wonderfu photol but too real for me...almost surreal... but I don't know why.
A visceral reaction. (If it was here and i felt the same, I would find out that some native people had been poisoned or shot many years ago...that's what happens when I feel like this.)

thank you Twiggy and nope just processed it a little differently.

and hmmmm, I will have to check... the view is of blackbear pass which is one the Ute used when they held this land.

a few weeks ago I had a project in the western part of the state. when I was there I had a chance to visit a location I had wanted to visit quite a while. the weather gods were mean to me and there was heavy rain. so no pics. anyway... it was the washita battlefield... a location where custer's cavalry massacred(I dislike the battlefield name for the location) Black Kettle's Band. 30-60 Cheyenne were killed(56 appears to be the legit number) Braves, Women and children old and young alike... then they killed the ponies... 800 of them.

anyway...

as I was standing under an awning of a structure near the site, surveying the different hills, the ridges custer's troopers hid behind waiting on dawn... it was as you say, a visceral reaction. you could feel that horror had occurred in that place.

I'll try it again, maybe at the same time of year as the attack. [link]

Thanks for that. Catch. Sometimes that feeling can be a real curse and I have to hotfoot out of the geography. In this young land we are still discovering hideous past events. Interesting to think that the Australian Aboriginal culture is the longest continuous and oldest culture on the planet....and now a wonderful revival of language and dreaming is evolving. It gives me a great sense of justice.
