The Natural Landscape

The pond they bathed in, is now behind them; then I was standing on the other side. P1010614

Going down. You can see a part of that gorge again to the right. In several of the pictures the clouds make darks spots in the landscape.

Thank you for sharing a wonderful series. My favorites are long views with water in the distance, but they are all lovely.

How super beautiful Helge - I too love those long views, but the scenery all of it is just stunning and so nicely photographed.

Such outstanding views and vistas! One could easily use up all the
superlatives while commenting on those photos. So beautiful!

Wow.  Someday, someday, I'll have to visit Norway in the summer,
before I get too old to hike.

Thanks, everybody. I do feel it's the easiest scenery to photograph.

Beautiful!

Yes, there is smaller statue of liberty on an old bridge support on the Susquehanna. I understand some private individual took it upon himself to place it there http://www.weirdus.com/states/pennsylvania/roadside_oddities/lady_libert y/

Another view. One annoying thing about it is that it is really hard to get a good picture of it with a 200 mm lens unless you trespass or kayak closer,as far as I have been able to determine.

--------

{Photography.22.2233}: Tom Coleman {tomcoleman} Mon, 11 Aug 2014 15:23:49 EDT (HTML)

The article agrees with my assessment. And adds that the statue is 25 feet tall!

{Photography.22.2234}: Sony Cybershot HX-20V {kitty} Mon, 11 Aug 2014 15:38:54 EDT (HTML)

That's fun. :-)

I didn't know about Roadside Oddities. I usually use Roadside America.

Thanks. :-)

I was only familiar with Roadside America. It's great to hear about a
similar site. Looks like you got the best photos possible, Tom!

I've seen the Dauphin Narrows SoL. That's my dad's family's neck of
the woods, Perry County.  I recall driving along US11/15 in a dead
stopped bumper-to bumper traffic jam by Dauphin, and the Amish
horsebuggies passing us in their own lane.

Oh, and of course there's a geocache there.  I mean right there, by
the statue. http://coord.info/GC3MD2Z

I won't be kayaking to it anytime soon. My ability is not at that level. By the way those are NOT my kayaks in the picture. Didn't go out that day, and mine is a Advanced Elements Convertible Inflatable which has yet to see any action this year :-(
