photo challenge week #6 - from a low angle

Dummerston, Vermont - abandoned stone quarry

looking up the rock face of Black Mountain
on a chilly Vermont afternoon
I'm not sure whether Greg knew that this was my next prompt
when he took me on a detour, saying "you want to see something cool?"
Why, yes - yes I do

next up - Close up
- which I'll post in two weeks
I'm thinking about doing something a little different next week...

Thanks for dropping in!

EF-S18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS II
ISO 100 20mm 1/60 sec @ f/4.0


  1. When I'm in the Adirondack Mountains, this is a common scene...lovely Karen.

  2. who is greg kidding, we always want to see something cool!! this is a great images, it almost looks as though there is water at the base!!

    i like the evergreens - and the orange, nice pops of color. like enjoying 2 seasons in one!! have a fun sunday!!

  3. A great angle and the rocks look rather artistic.

  4. Beautiful shot and angle on the rock cuts! It could turn a wonderful waterfall during the showering/rain.
    Many of the photos I shoot are from low angle due to my position on wheelchair.

  5. Stone quarrys are wonderful -- one of the many amazing memories from our RV stay in Vermont... because they're great to look at and because they are something I wouldn't have had any idea about if we hadn't visited. (you can read about things -- at least I can -- and still really not realize what they really look like).

  6. Magnificent down low. Also great teaser for next week, can't wait.

  7. I love all the different textures on this rock face. What a sweet hubby to want to show you something 'cool' moments make best memories...

  8. Thank Greg for all of us for showing us something so cool!
    I would have been tempted to try and scale those rocks and I see someone made it over to write something on the rock face?
    I'm curious now for next week's challenge !


I am always happy to hear from you -
