Splendid isolation

 

This track by Warren Zevon came on as I was processing this,and I couldn't think of a better title.

Taken in the Wupatki National Monument Park, near to Flagstaff, A.Z. U.S.A.

The perfect title - just you and nothing!

Warren Zevon is a new one on me. Picture's excellent and the song ain't bad either!
Frank L Croston.: What!? You must have heard ' Werewolves of London',Which was voted best opening line in a song ever,on radio 2, Bill? He passed away a couple of years ago,he was a great character,and song writer. Glad you like the photo.

That's a huge scene you have there; not too crowded, either! Perfect!
Frank L Croston.: Just the two of us,Alan...lovely place.
This comes as a surprise, I was thinking it was all mountains and canyons round that way. Nice track BTW.

The sky meets the horizon...

That's a lot of not much! Now I've got more music to look (listen) up.
