A panel from Hell. Made me think of Dante’s…

Lost souls? Dissipating souls? Scream?
See what you like too see…

Build up of deposits of the material eroded down the sides of one of the while pinnacles. I was seeing the tormented souls in hell. Like from too much time on my knees in this area…

    …i see what you mean, there are some interesting shapes and formations in this, but the darker rounded rock intrigues me
    Great shot…sandra

  • It does hang over their heads… Seems a balance to the white base.
    I see three sets of different forms along the bottom half, natural art, maybe.

    Nature is wonderful – as is this image, especially with your thoughts behind it evoking all sorts of images in my own head.

  • Initially when there I was thinking “Scream” based on the stuff to the right. Another very interesting place in Arizona. Thanks Sue for the visit. A pleasure to see you.

    I see the people of the world with all the sorrow and burdens upon them…:) Love the colors, beautiful…:)

  • Thanks for looking Anna. Yes, much can be ‘seen’ here, and the close or macro views seem to more allow the imagination to work magic. Not all the earth’s colors are earth colored. Those pinnacles looked a bit like salt, but certainly do not have that taste…
    The burdens and sorrow seem to hide the faces, I guess that’s where I was seeing tortured souls losing the earthly features, maybe as part of the torture.
    Funny how such a tiny spot, maybe no bigger than your computer monitor, can evoke so many feelings. Some of these kind of images seem to cross into the realm of the poet. Some paintings go there, but seldom for photographs.

    I agree thats what i love about macro, it’s a offers an entire different point of view… :)

  • Macro make for a very big world as well. A back yard becomes a universe up close.

    Yes, this does look like Hell and the Poor Souls stuck there. An amazing capture. Although, I dare say this would be a wan representation of the real thing, but a reminder nevertheless. Have you heard of Fatima?

  • Thank you for the visit, and comment. Yes the facelessness I think brought that idea to the front.
    Yes I have heard of Fatima, but not so familiar as to be certain of your meaning.
