Touched Your Lips

I took quite a few 4×5 shots of Pawnee Buttes. I like a few of them, but it’s one of those places that’s just hard to photograph. I’ve seen very few photos from other people that do them justice. And fewer that I actually like. Most (even a couple of mine) are technically fine photographs (not this one).

Mostly, I just enjoyed being there. I spent about an hour waiting for the sun to get into the right spot, and just laid on the grass enjoying the scenery.

I was the only one there. I passed a tent on the way out, but the occupant was no where to be seen. The day before I saw someone hiking (could have been the same guy), and there was another tent a quarter mile from mine, but I didn’t see who was there. In this whole park, I was one of three people. I’m sure it gets busier at other times of the year (this was July), but experiencing this solitude was wonderful.
