The Tongue

Water swirling through the sandstone in Secret Canyon caused this interesting canyon formation and it is called "The Tongue."

Water can make fascinating designs in sandstone.

Can you imagine the power of the water rushing through this canyon during flash flooding?

I hope you are enjoying photos from my photography tour to the slot canyons and Vermillion Cliffs.

We also have New Zealand photos up on our travel site. Check them out at Viva la Voyage.

I would love to go to a gallery or a museum and see these all together, framed and hanging. They are so stunning.

Your photos of slot canyons remind me of giant pieces of fudge. I think the series is quite beautiful but I cannot imagine living without an abundance of water nearby: lakes, ocean, or rivers. Nonetheless, I'm fascinated by New Mexico and Arizona, one of which might be our next winter location instead of Mexico.

Die Dogmen wechseln, und unser Wissen ist trüglich; aber die Natur irrt nicht: Ihr Gang ist sicher, und sie verbirgt ihn nicht. Jedes ist ganz in ihr, und sie ist ganz in jedem.

Arthur Schopenhauer, (1788 - 1860), deutscher Philosoph

So wonderful pictures, it like a dream journey.

A very atistic way to stick out one's tongue and to pause for a picture...

These are gorgeous. Seems like silk rather than rock.

I like the name Secret Canyon, and no -- I cannot imagine water gushing through. It's too serene and dry.
