29 May 14.  If I were to mention the name of any of our national parks, I feel rather certain that each would conjure up a specific entity of the park. For example, Rainier national park would cause you to think Mt Rainier;  Mt Rushmore national park, the 4 monuments; Zion national park, The Watchman; Capital Reef national park, The Castle; Bryce Canyon national park, the Hoodoos; Yosemite national park, Half Dome; and Yellowstone national park, Old Faithful. Anyone come up with a different association? It is interesting to me how we associate specific features of each park with the park such that the mere mention of the feature immediately identifies for us the park. Today's Theatrical Thursday submission is of a feature in a park that at first glimpse might have you confused. A closer look will undoubtedly correct that initial miss identification if it happens, but the feature is close enough to another similar looking object that it is possible that a hurried look will miss lead you. Returning home on that Saturday late afternoon drive to a few westerly portions of the park, we stopped to shoot bison in the snow. As the weather settled in around us for a short period of time, several of the park features took on a very different look and provided for some very nice images. This one is among my favorites of some snow frosted rocks that looked good in all three renditions, straight, creative, and B&W. This one is of course the creative attempt.
