Geo 730: August 12, Day 589: Dana For Scale

Another shot of the slickensided cliff face, on another trip, with Dana for scale. One thing that I learned on the trip this year is that I normally visit this spot fairly early in the day, before the sun has come around to illuminate it. We started out two or three hours later than usual on the most recent trip, and the difference in photo quality with and without much direct light is striking. The difference in person, maybe, not so much. But in person, other qualities, such as texture and depth, play a much bigger role in perception.
