    • That’s how I roll;-)

      I’ve been known to be a little loose with my interpretations of the weekly theme from time to time. Not to mention the fact that of the almost 12,000 photos I currently have on my hard drive, there isn’t a single one that would even remotely qualify as a monument.

    • That just about sums up my thoughts as well. Even the most beautiful man made monument, even when executed to perfection, is improved upon with the addition of a little golden hour sunlight.

    • Thank you very much.

      Stick around, you haven’t seen anything yet. Or look back through some older Weekly Photo Challenge posts. I’ve been know to be a little fast and loose with my interpretation of the theme. :-)

      As a rule I almost never read description of the theme for the week. I don’t want to be influenced by anyone else’s ideas, or their take on the theme.

  1. gorgeous – and a brilliant take on the challenge that seems to be just outside the box :) i have been away and busy and didn’t have a monument to post. nice to enjoy this one. thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you so much. Same here, as I mentioned in another reply, of the almost 12,000 images I have in my Lightroom catalog I think there might be two statues among them. And neither would classify as a “monument” in my book.

      So I got to thinking… ;-)

  2. Great ‘monumental’ images. I like these so much better than the normal man made monuments, these make my heart sing!

    • Yes, thank you Beth, I am. I’ve got one more trip to the mountains in the works before the snow is gone, to make up for my last trip, which turned out just a bit too windy and snowy for any good photos. FYI, high winds and whiteouts aren’t helpful when trying to photograph sunrise ;-)

      But then, bring on the sunny warm weather.

    • Julie you are far too kind, as usual.

      I have an update for you on the Seek The Peak pledge issue. I heard back from one of the women who helps organize it, and near as she can tell there’s no reason why you should be having problems using your credit card to make a pledge even though you’re not in the U.S.

      If for whatever reason it still doesn’t work(let me know if you need the link to try to make a pledge again), just give me some warning the next time you plan to be in the area and I’m sure I can swing something to help you realize that dream. :-D
