Thanks! Really digging the HDR setting on the phone camera - really made those colors pop even in cloudy conditions. My favorite was that last shot. I had to climb some pretty perilous stacks of rocks to get that view!

Extreme close up of Skull Canyon. What are these pieces of coral doing here? We are at 7000 feet in elevation, and about 700 miles from the ocean. I dunno, geology's weird.


It sure is, but if you're looking for an answer, science offers this: The canyon is a junction of tectonic plates (looking at Google maps, it looks to be right smack on the fault). The land there would have once been under water when the corral died, it would since have been thrust upwards when California joined the rest of America, only to be exposed again as it receded or a glacier came along to carve it open.

Alternatively: Noah's flood.

And why not: Thalès of Milos (circa 500 B.C.) figured that all four elements were just derived of water, and that it's entirely possible for some Californian lake to have just turned to stone.

Interesting...I did take a geology class once but I wasn't that familiar with how the plate tectonics shaped that particular area. I do know that most of southern Idaho and southeastern Oregon, where the Snake, Bruneau and Owyhee Rivers flow, were shaped by volcanic activity and lava flows.

I did talk to a geologist who said that the black mineral deposit had the same basic chemical structure as tourmaline, but with iron ions instead of lithium in it's molecular structure- or something like that anyway; the iron in the molecular structure makes it black, opaque and essentially worthless except as a conversation piece, but if it had lithium in it, it would be a colored, transparent and valuable gemstone.

Took a couple of photos on the mountain behind my new apartment here in Cheonan, South Korea:

That's one of the few pockets of nature here in the city, but I'm hoping to be able to check out some other beautiful stuff while I'm here so hopefully there will be more for this thread soonish!

Some mountains surrounding the ghetto part of Salt Lake City. I've only been back for a week and I already miss it.

Took a bunch of photos at this beautiful Buddhist temple just outside my city. I'll post a couple here even though not all of them are nature-filled but all are quite scenic:

The whole place is nestled in the mountains that surround the city:

Shrine on the path up the mountain:

The paths through the woods up the mountain were covered in these little shrines people had built:

Are animal photos alright? I've got a few neat ones, but none were actually *ahem* in the wild...

and no, I don't mean housecat photos, haha.

EDIT: I do have some landscapes that I forgot about, but I still want to know if I can add the animals :D

If they are pets, post them in the general photo thread. If they're wild animals taken in a zoo or in your backyard or something, I guess they could fit here. :)

The image insert isn't really working for me (i.e. I'm probably not doing it correctly), so I'll just post the link to the Flickr account that I just made. There's only about 25 photos and the latter half are the nature ones. Feedback would be very much appreciated :D

Here we go!
