Scales of Time

Hundreds of millions of years were needed for the Colorado plateau to accumulate its material under an ocean. Hundreds of million more were needed to expose it to the atmosphere, when erosion would carve canyons and spires into its surface. Plants and animals would evolve over this time, adapting or dying out with the changing conditions. Humans are the latest inhabitants in this history. Click on the image for a larger view

Goosenecks State Park

Goosenecks State Park in Utah is an entrenched river meander cut into the Colorado Plateau by the San Jan River. The river flows six miles through the canyon, but only advances one and a half miles because of the curves. Monument Valley in Arizona is south of this location and its rock spires can be seen at the horizon in the middle frame. Click on the image for a larger view.

The End of an Era, Part 4

This is the last day of operation for the Tsukiji Fish Market. This image is from the early afternoon when the inner market was closed. The market had been in business in this location since 1935. The images on our site are from the early 1990s when access to the inner market was less restrictive. The increasing influx of tourists required the market to limit access. The restaurant in the outer market will remain in this location. This is from Tsukiji: Tokyo Fish Market Suite. Click on the image for a larger view.
