  1. ‘Shadow’s blush’…ahaa! Lovely. 🙂

  2. Shadow’s blush – love the creativity.

  3. Yes, where have all the lions gone! Good question to ask! Nicely MMT!


  4. It feels sad sometimes for the absence of the King of the Jungle … who is to be blamed?

  5. Perfect picture and just right for the haiku.

  6. The wash leaves the appearance of mountains on each side, with the dark of shadow offset bu the solar lighting. So it is not so foreboding…unless the big cats do indeed show up on our pathway anyhow…

  7. Great shadow shot for the day as always and I do love the mountains!! Enjoy your weekend!!

  8. your posts are always so serene- lovely to look at and think about.

  9. It’s like a gateway to wildness!

  10. There were lions in the Arizona desert? Amazing….

  11. And, lucky for you that there are no pride of lions parading down that wash! Beautiful and dramatic shot.

  12. Prowling shadows – love the imagery. There is so much texture and color to see in this shot.

  13. Sad about the lions, but the blush remains.

  14. Morocco looked a bit like that. 🙂
