Kaleidoscope #285


Men come and go, cities rise and fall, whole civilizations appear and disappear-the earth remains, slightly modified. The earth remains, and the heartbreaking beauty where there are no hearts to break….I sometimes choose to think, no doubt perversely, that man is a dream, thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun.
― Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness 

 

 

 

 

 

Below is the original photo used to create this image. This was taken at the Grand Canyon during the tail end of the sunset golden hour.  The colors were glorious and I’m so pleased with the watercolor intensity. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
