It was more Kodak Tri-x the day we were there, Ell', the only disappointment of our trip I think, ( other than not being able to get more bacon on my breakfast plate! ) smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Too bad, wasn't it! And I'm sure sorry about that bacon... smile

What a wonderful views these are. I just googled the place (it was about to close and the weather was slightly chance of showers and 59F.... what a place to be. (with or without bacon wink )
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I'm glad you googled it... when Frank said it was the only disappointment - it was because we had such flat light, and dull gray skies- it looked more monochrome! And about the bacon... it's because our hotel offered a lovely buffet, and I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone pile so much bacon their plate! He was a very happy boy, indeed! smile

Joli paysage, j'aime le contraste des couleurs.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Martine - it's a unique place for sure!
In Kodachrome or monochrome, it's still a wonder, Elizabeth, isn't it!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Yes, it is, Ginnie!!
The red rock rising against the green looks impressive.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Red and green always go nicely together, don't they?!

The reds of those rocks are very unworldly
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Even in this poor light, you can see how the area got that name!

It was such shame that you weren't able to see it in its full beauty but as it is "just up the road"from you, you can pop back again before long. smile I can well understand how it got that name.

I'm sure Frank has taken you to Buttermere in the Lake District and has shown you the classic pine trees at the head of the lake; they also also known as the Kodak Pines because of the millions of photos taken of them over the years.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - we were a bit disappointed. No good photo's - but we had fun anyway! Yes - we do hope to return!

Oh yes- I've been to Buttermere several times, and have photographed those pines!!
Eilean Donan castle in Scotland was always known as Kodak castle. I imagine for the same reasons as this park
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I dunno about the castle, but Kodochrome Basin State Park was named by a National Geographic expedition because of the colors in the landscape. This area was not fully explored until the middle of the last century!

Love the deep deep deepness of the image, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray! The depth of these landscapes is wonderful!

a wonderful composition - the rocks look like an ancient petrified town.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Philine! I like your take on it!
The pines against the red rock are beautiful.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Mary! Red and green always look nice together, don't they?!
i really like the contrast between the dull tones in the background and on the subject, ELizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Ayush! Just as it was - I don't know if you've ever experienced a snow storm moving in... but it's like a veil falling over the landscape. Lovely!
two great panoramas Elizabeth... i like the one with the snow rolling in... it snowed again here Wednesday and the snow is still on the ground... Penny's tulips are fighting back and winninggrin....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Peter!
It snowed here last night... but true to Flagstaff form... it warmed up to 60 degrees, and became a beautiful day with people wearing shorts and T's!
YAY for Penny's tulips! They're tough aren't they!

What wonderful scenery.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Favorite for us!
Hope you managed to duck the storm!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nope! It chased us down, and we drove through a blizzard! smile Big fun!
