Always like it when there’s a person to show the scale and I just like humans in general. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 18, 2020 • 8:54 am Thanks so much, Michael. I appreciate that you noticed. 🙂 Reply ↓ plaidcamper April 16, 2020 • 6:21 pm Wonderful! Thanks, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 18, 2020 • 8:53 am Thanks, Adam. Glad you enjoyed- it’s an unusual place. 🙂 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold April 16, 2020 • 3:46 pm The southwest os an amazing place..wish I had visited it at some point. Maybe some day. Your shot makes me want to be there. As always, take care and be well, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 5:10 pm Thanks, Steve. Oh, yes, you would go crazy with your camera. So many great National Parks and monuments. Road trip when this is all over! 👍🏻😁 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters April 16, 2020 • 2:17 pm Nice contrasts – reminds me of castle ramparts! Hope you are doing well, Jane. ❤ Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 2:18 pm Yes! Good comparison, Eliza. What a fascinating place. Faring pretty well, thanks so much. Hope you are, too. ❤️ Reply ↓ Eliza Waters April 16, 2020 • 5:00 pm Yes, thank you. Living rurally, I have a lot of freedom. So I feel for urban/suburban dwellers who are more constricted. Be well! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 5:16 pm That must be lovely and reassuring. Thankfully, San Francisco has the Presidio and coastal green spaces. We still have to work a bit to avoid contact with the handful of people we see on our walks. One thing is for sure, we are putting in more miles now than ever! Take care!

And great for B&W. Thank you! Reply ↓ anotherday2paradise April 16, 2020 • 1:47 pm Stunningly awe-inspiring, Jane. 😍 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 18, 2020 • 1:10 pm Thanks very much, Sylvia. It’s an amazing place to photograph. 🙂 Reply ↓ magicalnormal April 16, 2020 • 11:12 am I love New Mexico. This photograph showcases the mystic feeling of the state. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 12:21 pm Hi Elizabeth, I agree! The landscapes are amazing there. I’m glad this shot reminded you of how it feels to be there. Thank you so much. 🙂 Reply ↓ Robert Parker April 16, 2020 • 10:36 am I love that part of the world, and the fantastical shapes created by wind erosion. The texture and the shapes are great, and for some reason, it seems really neat that there’s one tiny figure walking by, maybe contributes a bit of wondering or mystery even. Very nice! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 12:19 pm Thank you, Robert, for sharing your thoughts. The White Place has an otherworldly feel- a subject often painted by O’Keefe. I felt lucky when the lone hiker graced the landscape. Glad you enjoyed this trip. 🙂 Reply ↓ Tom Schultz April 16, 2020 • 9:23 am The monochrome seems to bring out the texture in the rocks and the contrasting light and shadow. Very nicely done! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 10:08 am Hi Tom, Thank you! The white rock formations really lend to the black and white conversion. Happy you enjoyed this one. Reply ↓ Oh, the Places We See April 16, 2020 • 9:01 am We’ve never been to this location, but I can see the attraction. How lovely and natural. We love the west, especially New Mexico — not just for scenery but also the people, food and businesses. Come to think of it, I’d love a return trip after this quarantine we’re in. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2020 • 10:11 am Hi Rusha, This place was a wonderful surprise. A beautiful part of the country. Agree, going through photos makes me yearn for the freedom we had traveling. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you safe and healthy days. 💙 Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think...
