    Here are a couple I turned down. I SO wanted the cut-out in the rock to go, but it just wouldn't. Light was late and had gotten pretty thin. We walked around in front of it and I tried a couple of different viewpoints and lenses. I included it as part of a big scene and cut it with 450mm to just the shape. Just wouldn't go.
    Frustrating.

    The fence post brought me to a screeching halt, but same result. I got out and looked- it was quite a "thing" to see but I just couldn't manage it into a camera.

    Shot a couple of iphone files of both. I haven't had any more luck on the computer working with them. Not everything works.

    I did have one I didn't think would go, but shot an iphone wide angle of it as a note and there it was. I ran for the big camera.

    I hadn't noticed the little energetic black twiggy stuff until I shot it with iphone. More black at the top with 5X7. (My iphone is pointing off the subject when I zoom it.)

    Using a polarizer on the rocks. Cuts a little bit of reflection and brings out the stripes. Mostly shooting in the shade. Tempted to stack filters. You would think that you could just meter through them and be good but I've been burned every time I have done that with massive underexposure, so I'm a little hesitant. Polarizer or light yellow mostly. Or nothing. Once with the deep red. Nothing yet on a green.

    Like being in the Louvre. There is a masterpiece around every corner.
    Really like that last image Robert.
    Thanks,

    Rocknado from up near Spider Rock. Found this when I was a child and have photographed it several times.

    Datura Flower from up above Antelope house on the del Muerto side. Had Tulley Yazzie stop so I could look at a big willow that was hanging out of a streambed side. It didn't go, though it was a very handsome tree, but this was right by the jeep. Had to work quick. Light had started to hit it by the second side of the holder.
