Photo-Finish Friday - More from the Horn


Here's another look at the windswept Cape Horn area.
Regular readers are well aware now that this is one of my favourite sights in the world.
It's buffeted by winds and water and is largely barren and empty but for the bird life.
It's a place to expand a mind and let it touch the world without fear of it impinging on another.

Is it just my fevered imagination, or does that look like a dinosaur lying on his side with one nostril out of the water?
Cool picture, cousin!

I was thinking a head of cattle, Baggie.. but I'm sure you'd have seen that! Lovely photo, Leah. I can practically feel the wind in my hair. :)

It does, df Bag Lady. Thanks.

Hilary,a bovine works, too. Glad you like the pic.

I like that place, too. And that the birds get to keep it for themselves.

Leah J. Utas said...

Nancy, it's good the birds have a place they can keep to themselves.

That is a wonderful photo cousin. I agree with Sis, it must be a dinosaur, sleeping with his mouth open. The ocean is actually dino drool!

Gaa, eww. Thanks, Reb.
Glad you like the pic.

Lovely photo, it made me think of Sir Francis Drake on his secret voyage for Elizabeth I to find a new passage to China. He sailed around the Horn.

Barbara, I didn't realize Drake was on a secret mission.
