Tyger Lillies

Tyger Lillies
Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

When the stars threw down their spears
And water'd heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Antelope Canyon Spirals

Antelope Canyon is located on the Navajo Nation immediately east of Page Arizona. Page the old work camp for the Glen Dam an as such is an independent island of land cut out of the Navajo Nation. It is nestled next to the Glen Canyon and the massive reservoir created by the Glen Dam. Antelope Canyon itself is just outside of Page. There is an upper (Tsé bighánílíní place where water runs through rock) and lower canyon (Hazdistazí) on either side of highway 98 with parking lots that require an entry fee. The upper canyon is accessed by vehicles carrying groups of people along a long wash until you get to the slot canyon opening. The lower canyon reveals itself only all a crack across the desert and is accessed by a metal stair case system that takes you down into the canyon.

The canyons are eroded sandstone created through a combination of flash floods and other subaerial processes. The colours in the canyon red, magenta, gold, orange, pink and vermillion vary depending on the light and time of day.

Both canyons are prone, like all canyons in desert washes, to large flash floods that fill up the slot canyons without warning. Flash floods the second most deadly weather hazard, are particularly dangerous in a slot canyon. After 11 tourists were killed in these canyons in 1997 by a rain storm that occurred 11 km upstream, an alarm horn has been installed at the top of the canyon directly connected to NOAA. All access to these canyons must be done through the Navajo Nation using authorized guides.

Antelope Canyon Coal Power

The view from Page Arizona looks toward a large coal power plant now being decommissioned because of the Dakota gas fields but directly below the stacks lies Antelope Canyon. There is an electric train that brings the coal all the way from Kayenta the entrance way to Monument Valley.

Seeding the Wind II

This series of photos captures flowers as they transition from bud to bloom to death. 
Bouquets of flowers have a special symbolism in most cultures. Flowers mark every kind of occasion and are always given in a spirit of goodwill even when they're meant as condolences. As well, the deliberate selection, intentional arrangement, and desire to create beauty and symmetry as a gift, underscore the best in humankind. The symbolism of flowers in combination with their fleeting beauty is a poignant reminder of our own beauty and frailty.
