One more reason why Zidane 'rocks' - He's so good at head banging. :) [Pun intended, of course.]

Monument Valley

(Please click on the photo for larger image.)

Took this snap of East mitten and west mitten buttes in monument valley (Utah-Arizona border) around sunset, just when the shadows were starting to crawl up the mittens. When seen from another angle, the "thumb" of the larger mitten looks like a woman standing in a pensive mood.

Gray of the purest melancholy

(Click on the photo for a bigger picture.)

As seen from the vicarage dining-room, which took a warm tone of light from the fire, the weather and scene outside seemed to have stereotyped themselves in unrelieved shades of gray. The long- armed trees and shrubs of juniper, cedar, and pine varieties, were grayish black; those of the broad-leaved sort, together with the herbage, were grayish-green; the eternal hills and tower behind them were grayish-brown; the sky, dropping behind all, gray of the purest melancholy.

-- From 'A pair of Blue Eyes' by Thomas Hardy.

(Photo Location - Sunrise Highway near Mount Laguna, San Diego.)
