Instagram is great. As are you. But all other social media sucks.

As does instagram, if I'm honest, but that's neither here nor there.

Same day as the previous pictures. This one's a case of being deeply uninteresting in color, and I actually noticed it only last night. I nonchalantly set it in b&w and it suddenly spoke to me. Grading it took me a solid five minutes. Sometimes that's all it takes. Not that it's a masterpiece, but I like it.

The title is actually the name of the part of the mountain shown here. Translates as "Closed Rock", which I found intriguing. Could be a Tolkien place.

This is not an uncommon view in the mountains. Shepherd cabins on improbable spots, and in this case, I'm not even sure how you get up there, on a narrow ridge, facing the biggest mountain in my home region.

I've always been fascinated by these little spots of human presence, the effort it must have required to build them there, and their mountain-like principle of being always open to shelter anyone when it's not occupied by a shepherd. They're assumed dwellers of a nature bigger than us and an allegory of the contemplative loneliness the mountain compels to experience.
