Photos from Petrified Forest

Hope you liked the photos of the sky, the clouds were fantastic the day we we were at the Petrified National Forest. An overcast day makes it much easier to shot photos since the sun doesn't wash out the colors. As you can see from these photos, the skies change from sunny with some clouds to overcast and misty. It is easier to get better color representation when the skies are overcast.

The first photo is of the landscape in the early part of the park. Second photo is the desert and some of the petrified logs. Third photo is a close-up of the petrification (is that a word?). I think the colors are amazing. Can't believe that a piece of wood changed into this colorful stone. I loved the colors so much that Mark bought me a bracelet made from small, polished pieces of petrified wood (all legally collected by the 1st Nations' People in an area outside of the National Park).

Love to you all. Judy and Mark
