Here are a couple of photos which capture the concept of delicate for me!!  Hope you enjoy them.


The first one is from the glaciers of Kilimanjaro.  I think of these as delicate because their future appears to be very precarious and it is believed that they will be completely gone within the next 20 – 30 years.  Despite their massive appearance, their existence is really in a very delicate balance.

These photos come from a beautiful snow day at the magnificent Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO.  This park lies at the foot of Boulder’s famous Flatirons. In Colorado, big snows are usually followed by magnificent blue-bird days.  Delicate icicles and ice formations like these typically don’t last very long in this intense sun.  DSC00814DSC00813This last photo is from Arches National Park in Utah.  This is a photo of the very thin Landscape Arch.  I am amazed by these formations and the geological forces that it took to create such amazing natural wonders.  IMG_0098
