Some times we forget how small we are! Thanks for the brilliant photo, as always!
I will be visiting some different kind of giants next month. I will be taking some middle schoolers on a redwood excursion (Redwood Forest National Park) for four days!

Looks like a human spine - the 2 curvatures forward and 2 backward, with the guy standing at the coccyx :D

Nice view.. Thanks for sharing!

Linnea W said...

Fabulous view! The hiker on the rock is dwarfed by the size of the outcropping! It looks like it would be nice and cool up so high in the mist.

George said...

What a fantastic view -- it's absolutely spectacular. To be there in person must be exhilarating.

I didn't realize that but it surely looks like that way :)

WOW! Brilliant panoramic shot! This so resembles the scenes from the Western Ghats in India.

Beautiful picture K! Is that Purple Boxers? :)

Kirigalpoththa said...

Chavie,
Yep, That's HIM! :D

Harumi said...

What a breathtaking view! Great capture.

The terrain looks tough to climb but worth all the efforts if you could see something like this with your own eyes, isn't it?

Birgitta "foto CHIP" said...

Oh I like this photo - it's getting mistier and mistier - the soft green color - and the edge in the centre :)

Ann said...

is that you standing on the top of the ridge?

cat said...

What a climb it must have been to get up there! Looks like it was worth it though :)

Vernz said...

Wow this is a glorious scene ...

The Wired City
