Looking up and away

Sycamores by Bull Creek Cliffs 2233

Looking up and away on February 28th from the place in the panhandle of St. Edward’s Park where the nibbled purple anemone grew so close to the ground, I recorded quite a different view: sycamore trees, Platanus occidentalis, with their white bark standing tall against the horizontal white of the even taller cliffs carved out by æons of water flowing through Bull Creek.

Most of the pictures in these pages are closeups, so I’m happy whenever I can give you a change of pace with a conventional landscape like this one. Visitors to these pages in November of 2012 saw a horizontal view of the cliffs about a mile upstream from the place in today’s picture.
