I recently read two articles on photography about the benefits of staying local, and learning to look to find depth and meaning in your surroundings.  I think the point was that without searching out distant and exotic locations, you can still find something unique and meaningful in your back yard.  I am also working my way through "Looking at the Overlooked" an excellent treatise on still life painting.  All this has encouraged me to go back to sites I have photographed before and spend more time exploring and looking.  It is amazing the world that open up if you take the time to be patient, and see what is there.  Here are two images from a second visit to a local wonder.  It is only a 10 minute drive from the house; the hike down into the area is unfortunately a trying 45 minutes.  Then the climb back up!!  As I told my photo buddy Brad, it was definitely a two beer day.
