Mother Nature's fantasia  Hoodoos with white cap stones, Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon, Utah.  The white rock (cap stone) is harder than the underlying red sandstone, so it protects the underlying rock from erosion.  Another close-up of the hoodoos, and the remainder of the White Pocket images, can be seen here: http://goo.gl/yWR7T6  28/08/14 www.allenfotowild.com
When that pink hits your eye Like a bubble gum pie -  That's hibiscus!  When the blooms seems to shine 'cause the weather is fine - That's hibiscus.  DP239-2014  Posted August 27; processed  ditto. I lost internet service during a period of severe thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, before I had left any comments for the day, and only got it back this morning.  So apologies for not responding to all the lovely comments left yesterday for my own shot.  You have to be pretty old to recognize my lame parody of the tune from the 1950's, 'That's Amore', made popular by Dean Martin (originial lyrics here, for example:  http://www.metrolyrics.com/thats-amore-lyrics-dean-martin.html)  Lots of hibiscus are in bloom around town - almost like a second season of blooms, but none were any larger than these, which were the size of salad plates, fully 8-9 inches across.  Taken August 21, 2014.  Matthaei Botanical Gardens Title:  Bubble Gum Pie
