Theme day: Passageway

Here is a photo of a passageway through the boulders on a hike in northern Scottsdale.

I love passageways like this. It is great to walk through and be surprised at what you see on the other side.

We certainly have nothing like that here.

I love this passageway and the idea of finding what's on the other side.

I'd have expected nothing less from you. An awe inspiring passageway.

Nice choice for Theme Day Julie!

The colors and textures are excellent.

Superb theme day shot, Julie! There is something wonderful about the Arizona desert!

Didn't realize you were tripping around the world. Hope you had a great time!

passage to the light

Jarart said...

Yes!! This is a perfect passageway. It's wonderful to walk through places like this. You can't tell how close to a huge city you are.

The form and textures of the rocks are extraordinary, the harmony of Nature!

I love too, but it is so far away !

Lovely slanting warm light. Will you show us what's on the other side? :-)

I like it too! What was on the other side?

I knew you'd come up with something stunning for this theme and you did not disappoint.

Ben said...

It's all about a thrill and an anticipation. I wonder what kind of surprise is waiting for us.

Ineke said...

great passageway! it took me a while when i looked at the little photo on the portal to figure out what was what :)

Julie, I'm anxious to see your photos from Tanzania. I have a great love for Africa's flora. In fact, many of my plants are African. I grow them all from seed. Some need to be dropped in boiling water to break down the hard seed casing; while others, like Proteas, require treatment in a smoke tent. No wonder my neighbors think that I am a witch-doctor.


About your last comment - Julie, you are far too kind!
I can guarantee you one thing: you know far more about photography than I do. I'm very glad that you enjoy my blog - but I really don't think it's about the photography as such. It's has more to do with frame of mind than any technical ability on my part. Seriously.

I really like this photo. Would love to walk here and explore. Great choice for passageway.

Leif Hagen said...

That's between a rock and a hard place! Great passageway for today's theme day - looks like a fun place to explore!
Welcome back from Tanzania!

Excellent passageway shot.

Must feel amazing to pass and entering "freedom" again, imagine, that one feels much larger afterwards.
A nice Wednesday for you all.

Buck said...

Awesome realisation of the theme. Love all the contrasts!

Don and Krise said...

Perfect. The fun is in the surprise.

Louis la Vache said...

A challenging passageway!

News flash to B-SQUARED: The remains of your Yugo were found on the other side...

JM said...

Wow! This is an absolutely gorgeous entry! Love it!

Glad you enjoyed Tanzania. Looking forward seeing the photos on your travel blog! :-)

Paula said...

We don't have boulders here in Florida. Sigh. I can just imagine how it makes you feel to walk through there.

Halcyon said...

What a wonderful passageway. This is a little different than most I've seen!

Tash said...

Oh my... this is so lovely and so perfect for Scottsdale environ. Most excellent!!!

Carolyn said...

This photo's got it all: light, texture, color, composition, and best of all, a sense of place. Bravo!

Randy said...

Julie, what a beautiful shot. I love the rock formations in this area of town.
