All pictures were taken on Thursday, May 28, 2009 using a Canon PowerShot A590 IS.

So you see, sandgirl, I did make it down to Arkansas this summer! Thx for the flowers. Now here's one for you...

Sorry, I just couldn't leave well enough alone.

The below image is the same as the first image in the series, but cropped and enlarged, to emphasize the detail of Little Hawk Crag.

Nice pictures of Little Hawksbill crag and the white river. I have some shots from there if I can find them.
Very pretty area.

Thanks! These show up dark on my 19" Dell LCD monitor at work. On the 20" iMac at home, they look just right. There doesn't seem to be a brightness adjustment on the Dell either. Weird.

Here's an interesting location in Arkansas, Rivervale. This is where one river crosses another without mixing.

Here we see the east to west channel going into the culvert.



And here we see the north to south channel flowing over the culvert.



You can get a birds eye view using Google Earth. Just search for Rivervale, AR and zoom in enough to see the two channels.

I was just telling a guy today about this. I have never seen it but saw it mentioned on the arkansas roadside website. He had just moved here from Washington (State).
Thanks for posting the pictures.

You may have noticed that there was a boat passing by on the White in a couple of the shots. I managed to shoot them (with the camera of course) when they were just below the bluff.

Here you see the original image shot from on high.



Here you see the crop and zoom.



This was accomplished in iPhoto with a simple frame and crop. It is just amazing to me the amount of detail in these digital images that is lost when the entire image is rendered at a small size. Granted, when posting to a BBS thread one wants to keep the image size manageable to reduce page load times, but I think it's important to remember that much is lost in the process. Cropping out edge elements that are unnecessary to the composition can benefit an image greatly.

Hey...Bull....

In that east-west culvert shot, I see you were right across from my vacation home!

Next time, come in and have a sweet tea.

It ain't locked.

LOL... Thanks Rog!

Say, that's a pretty nice place you got there. You know what they say, "Location, location, location."

Wait, ... I think that must be for business or some such.

Well, I'm sure they say something about it. "Home sweat home?" "To the root cellar! The storm's coming?" Something.

Just gotta take the cellophane off the windows now & again to let the flys out.
