Buttes and Peaks

Every part of the Colorado Plateau could be a photograph. This shot was taken with a long telephoto lens and so the various features shown are really separated by long open spaces. I am guessing that the sharp butte you can see in the center is about three to fours miles away from where I was standing. By road, it is more like ten to fifteen miles away. Distances are deceiving. When I was very young, I took a walk towards a cliff that I considered to be only a short distance away and soon found myself a long way from where I started and no much closer to the cliff.
