Tonto natural bridge

You can just see the drought stricken waterfall, under the worlds largest travertine bridge.

Tonto state park. Arizona. U.S.A.

Elizabeth and I, are off on a road trip for a few days, down into New Mexico, so may be late with any replies. I know......It's a tough life, but someone has to do it......

Fine shot, Frank, even if the Falls are a bit sparse.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray,yes, still in a drought.
this is a beautiful composition Frank...
i believe that i see a few streams of water to the right side...
i've never been to New Mexico... so send back pictures....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Peter,yes you can see a few streams of water,not much,but if you stand underneath it! smile I'll do my best.
I just love how you caught the clouds without, and the misty water, without making the inside of the canyon too dark!
Frank L Croston.: The wonders of Photomatix my dear, nothing to do with me...smile

I remember Tonto as the Lone Ranger's sidekick, which rather dates me. Lovely picture Frank. I know nothing of New Mexico, so perhaps you can assist with my education..
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Chris, well it's my first proper visit, so I'll let you know,so far it's been good.
Wow fantastic point of view Frank simply stunning. A likey for me.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, it was a great place to visit,just a shame the waterfall was lacking water.
A fine picture Frank

I see that the casting of Johnny Depp as Tonto was voted the worst piece of miscasting in a film.

Enjoy New Mexico
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill. Yes I noticed that . I'm sure we will.

This is incredible. I like your 4 streams of water seemingly fall from the sky. Tonto makes me think of the Lone Ranger.

I know you'll enjoy New Mexico; so much history. Albuquerque and Santa Fe are my favourites (I've been to a Starbucks in Santa Fe more often then I've been to one in Scumsville).
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan, a stunning place. We are in Santa fe tonight, looking forward to exploring it tomorrow, just had a great Mexican meal . smile
Wonderful capture Frank! Enjoy your trip into New Mexico.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard, I'm sure we will. smile
Awesome shot, Frank. Certainly a wonderful landscape.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary, a stunning place.
Excellent picture Frank, no doubt that is a torrent in the winter. Enjoy your trip, I also know nothing about New Mexico, I hope they don't refer to you as a Gringo though!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, Elizabeth tells me late spring , from snow melt, and late summer from the monsoon, are the best times. Hope not !

What an amazing place, Frank. Your treatment makes it feel as if we are standing there right where you are.
