Juniper and Red Rocks

According to Wikipedia, there are over 70 canyons in the United States with the name "Red Canyon". This photo was taken in Red Canyon Park near Canon City, Colorado. It's a beautiful little town, and a beautiful park. The 500-acre park has lots of picnic grounds scattered around as well as hiking trails. Apparently, it's also a popular place to climb.

Great angle on the shot, it gives a real feeling of sweeping height.

Who is that sitting up there? The rock encourages the imagination, even more so in monochrome.

Well done!
