Cripes! That's deep!

Timeless epic saga, condensed in the style of Readers Digest...

Gorgeous colours here, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Ray! The colors are quite remarkable... more about the depth and the epic saga tomorrow! smile
Another beautiful picture.

Bacon and eggs! smile Seriously, it's magnificent...

The circle looks like Earth Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I like that Peter!! I was thinking it looked like the sun setting over a hill...
It DOES look like the sun setting over a hill, Elizabeth. Now I'm wondering about how big this circle is??
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was about 2-3" across. This was the second one I'd come across that day. It amazed me that they were nearly, perfectly round!

I wonder how old this is?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well I don't know - it's just some natural coloration in the sandstone that I thought looked like a painting. The layers are from Jurassic and triassic times

a fine close-up- I would like to touch the red stone in order to get red fingers.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it lovely! This sandstone has been well compacted since the Jurassic and Triassic periods... It doesn't rub off easily!

It's incredible that the basic design has stayed there even if the detail is a bit vague. Great textures in the surrounding stone.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is just a natural formation - I thought it looked like a painting!

The giant gas planet, Jupiter, has a red spot Elizabeth. Here, a giant red spot has a planet looking like Jupiter.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Oh well done, Chad!!!
Perfect mystery, these people were more in tune with their world.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They were indeed, John!
A full moon. Love this shot, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Moon / Sun - It could represent whichever you choose!
The moon and stars is what I first saw....lovely shot Elizabeth smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good! Thank you Martin!
This is painted and not natural?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No, it is natural Mary! I think the near perfect roundness of the circle - with my title - threw some people off! I didn't mean to fool anyone! smile
what a great surface and texture
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do love the southwest sandstone!
Very Intriguing image Elizabeth. The sun came to my mind too looking at the ircle. Very interesting.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much! The American south west is full of intriguing natural finds!
This is great,Elizabeth,I remember you taking it,love those colours,like a big moon rising.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Frank!! Isn't it wonderful to have these shared memories! XOX

It looks like a bushman drawing of an elephant. In Arizona?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ummmmm.... I don't see an elephant....
Nice....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you!
Totally amazing Elizabeth.. love this!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Ronky!
I wonder what it meant to the people who did it?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well.... I have to confess it's a natural formation! I didn't mean to fool anyone, but I suppose my title did just that!

The dark part to the left of the bright spot. In 2D it could be an elephant turning its head to the left (as we see it). It takes a bit of imagination, like when you see other rock etches by some nomadic peoples.
