Surreal. What a beauty of a place.

Being there must root one to the ground in silence.

This is such a great picture. It looks amazingly good in black and white. My inlaws love the Texas Hill country. Now I can see why.

Also, I see that you like New Order. I used to love them. Back in 1982 or early 83 they played in Fullerton California. I sold my baseball card to get money for a ticket but my ride didn't pick me up. It still bugs me to think about it. lol I think I still have the flyer though. :)
