We saw many of these red and white lighthouses while visiting Prince Edward Island, one of the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Although identical in color, their shapes and sizes varied.
I spotted these weathered boats on Roanoke Island, a barrier island off the shore of North Carolina. It looks like they have spent many a day on the sea and are now in for repairs. I converted the photo from color to pen and ink and will submit it to Monochrome Madness Week 20, hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
This partially-completed memorial to the famous Lakota warrior, Crazy Horse, lies in the Black Hills of South Dakota, about 17 miles from the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Although it was originally approved by a Lakota elder, Standing Bear, many members of the tribe do not like the memorial and believe that Crazy Horse would not have wanted it. Those opposing the memorial say that it is a desecration of the land. Nevertheless, the completed head of Crazy Horse will be 87 feet high. By comparison, the head of each of the four U.S. Presidents at Mount Rushmore is 60 feet high. I will be submitting my black and white close-up of the face of Crazy Horse to this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
A wonderful thing about Old Faithful is that, if you visit Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, you can count on seeing it erupt! Its eruptions follow a predictable schedule, year after year, about 90 minutes apart. I watched this beautiful display more than once when I visited for the first time last spring. This image will be my submission this week to the Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
