With the formation at Lavertezzo in full sunlight for a couple of hours, I moved a short distance upstream to where a bend in the river meant the sun was obscured by the steep mountains on either side of the valley. After a quick scout using the camera in my phone to play with possible compositions, I returned to the car and brought the large format camera to bear on this scene.

I was attracted by the colours and how the smaller rock was nestling in the seemingly tender embrace of the larger boulders. Sometimes it's hard not to anthropomorphize even when you know you shouldn't.
