Continuing on with my series of images that don’t go together, this week’s selection is two images from two different parts of our country.  Let me explain both.  Above is an image I’ve been excited to share.  This one comes from here in East Tennessee and is inside an old water tank in Elmont.  The tank is missing part of its side, so its easy enough to get in and photograph, but I loved the visual of the rusty old ladder going up into the light, with the nice texture of the wood.  The moodiness of it really speaks to me, even though it’s almost a bit scary looking in my mind!

The image below comes from a slot canyon in southern Utah.  This particular spot was unfortunately a wind tunnel, and I got sandblasted while I was taking this image, however I loved the lighting.  There was a thin opening above me, which casts the light on the rock to the left, and then the bright light coming from the end of the slot added to the scene by sending a beam straight back to toward the camera.  As I’ve mentioned in the past, I absolutely love playing around in these canyons.  There’s just so much awesomeness to be found it seems!

Hey real quick – to my email subscribers, I apologize for the dead links in the last email that you received.  When I travel out of town, I tend to stage up my Picture of the Week posts so I don’t have to worry about them while I’m traveling.  Well for whatever reason, the email package that I use could somehow see that I’d staged some posts, and sent out links to those posts, even though they hadn’t published!  Not cool!  Anyway, in case you missed them, here’s the links you *should* have received while I was away in Japan: White TreesDowntown in InfraredThe Squares of Savannah. I’ll try to get that sorted out before my next trip!

More next week!
