Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks
Settling back into the routine of things in Florida after a week in Santa Fe has been challenging. Everything is so different. I went from one extreme to the next. Snow one day, wearing two pairs of pants, three shirts/jackets, scarf, gloves, and hat. Then spring the next, wearing shorts, tank tops, and sandals. The funny thing is I enjoyed both seasons. I loved the magical nature of snow falling, and feeling nestled in my many layers of clothing. I also love spring with its rebirth, renewal, and vibrance. It makes me feel alive and excited. Perhaps that has helped make the transition easier? Most likely it was the cold hard facts of reality, not to mention an art show this weekend.
I was still dreaming of mountains after my return. The mountains in that region are stunning, especially for a flatlander such as myself. I loved it all! The story has to go somewhere so I'm carrying on with Tent Rocks. The waving patterns from ancient volcanic rock and ash deposits were visually captivating. I wanted to walk across each segment through the lens. It was so peaceful to be completely immersed in the visuals of it all. The power of these towering rocks brought peace to my heart. I learned that "Kasha-Katuwe" means "white cliffs" in the Pueblo language Keresan. The name couldn't be more fitting. A stark contrast to the red rocks in Abiquiu (more on those in the coming weeks).
For this week's edits I decided to use the image below. I loved the waviness of it just by itself. As though it had a gentle rhythmic flow to it. And the peacefulness of being in the mountains can't be beat.
I really wanted to bring that flowing, peaceful feeling to this week's edits. Some have an outer space feel to them, while others have a movement all in their own. It all feels gentle and rhythmic, even when perceived as erratic. What do you see as you go through the images? Is there an image in particular that strikes you? What does it remind you of?
