Spider Rock, Canyon de Chelly sent on March 14, 2013 (10:40) by Herman. 35 comments, 2389 views.

Una leggenda Navajo in merito alla Spider Rock racconta di un ragazzo che, mentre stava tranquillamente cacciando nel Canyon dell'Uomo Morto, un ramo del Canyon de Chelly, improvvisamente vide un nemico di un'altra tribù che iniziò ad inseguirlo giù nelle profondità del canyon. Mentre il ragazzo scappava e si guardava intorno cercando un posto dove nascondersi, scorse proprio davanti a se l'obelisco della Donna Ragno. Che poteva fare? Sapeva che era difficile per lui arrampicarsi ed era quasi esausto. Improvvisamente, davanti ai suoi occhi, vide una corda di seta che pendeva dalla sommità della roccia. Il ragazzo Navajo si aggrappò alla corda magica, che sembrava abbastanza robusta, e velocemente se la legò attorno ai fianchi. Con l'aiuto della corda lui si arrampicò sulla roccia sfuggendo così al suo nemico che lasciò poi perdere l'inseguimento. Quando il ragazzo raggiunse la cima, si sdraiò per riposarsi. Lì scoprì un posto bellissimo, con uova d'aquila da mangiare e la rugiada notturna da bere. Immaginate la sua sorpresa quando scoprì che ad aiutarlo era stata la Donna Ragno! Lei gli disse che aveva visto in che situazione si trovava e che decise di aiutarlo. Gli mostrò come aveva costruito la sua corda-tela e come l'aveva ancorata ad una roccia per poi calarla fino a lui e farlo arrampicare su. Più tardi, quando il ragazzo fu sicuro che il suo nemico se ne era andato, ringraziò la Donna Ragno caldamente e ridiscese nel canyon, ancora con l'aiuto della corda magica. Tornò a casa correndo il più veloce possibile e raccontò alla sua tribù come fosse stato salvato dalla Donna Ragno. (tratto da:web: http://wanagiyata2012.blogspot.it/2012/01/)

Thanks Diego ;-) .. the Canyon de Chelly is one of the places that I remained in my heart but unfortunately I could devote little time and only along the scenic road that runs along the two branches (you have to book in to visit in a tour with Native Americans)!
It 'just at the end of one of the streets that you get to the viewpoint from which one looks at Spider Rock .. great place for an evening with a light and an amazing sky! :-)

Very very nice.
The composition is good even if the main subject is disturbed by the triangle of shadow to the right.
I understand, however, that on the left could be a very shady and you picked a good one.
I would try cutting a 1:1 trying to place the third pillar in the area on the right.

The thing that I like about this photo is the management of light and color.
Very natural, it makes you feel on the spot.
hello

Thanks Beppe, I agree with your comments on the "weight" of the triangle of shadow in the lower right but my goal was to try to understand the nature of the place that the monolith is placed at the end of the main branch of the canyon (first of a fork) that is a groove that shadows can redesign the back of the same, as the sun aligns with the groove ..
The light was incredible and changed all the time, making it even more magical place :-)
Hello and good we!

I really like the picture as it is (of course much more beautiful than my old slide). I also remember the place as magical. Bravo. Hello. ;-)

Thanks Mario .. Your view should be projected ;-) unfortunately this is a case where "progress" has not helped crabs!: fconfuso: Hello

Hello Mari .. I think that the places at the bottom are a bit like people .. have their own personal story and you seem different to changing the day or of the boundary conditions .. have to be lucky to "meet" at the right time! :-) In this case, I think I was very lucky! ;-) A big hug and thank you.
