Artist's Description

Looking over the rooftops of downtown Helena Montana (USA), one sees the geologic feature know as “The Sleeping Giant”. The figure is really quite distinct bearing an uncany likeness to a man lying on his back; with the head beginning about a third of the way in from the right margin. A prominent nose, then the massive chest rises above the head at about the center of the picture. Geologist figure that the “head” was once the crown of the mountain which composes the “chest” and slid off during an earthquake long, long ago.

Canon EOS-7D, Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6 L IS, 100mm 1/200, f/20, ISO 125, Processed in Lightroom.
