    Wandering about in the Ojito Wilderness of New Mexico, I had a 2nd chance at their "mini Wave". I was so underwhelmed by it the 1st time, I didn't take much time to shoot it. In fact, I walked past it 3x before I realized that, yes, that's what "they" were referring to. This time, I had nicely overcast skies & it had shrunk so much in my memory, that I was pleasantly surprised to see how it had "grown"!

    C&C always welcome!

    And because I know you folks will want to know how much smaller it is than the real thing, I put my dog in for scale.

    Good one Monica - esp. after adding in some scale :) Overcast skies would be a blessing for this little subject so you can get the most out of the subtle colors. I can see why you might breeze right past this spot without even noticing it was there.

    I tend to call it a "microWave" instead of "mini"

    Now this is pretty cool Monica. I figured it was smaller then the regular Wave, but I had no idea, and I mean no idea that it would actually be that tiny! How funny! But you know, I like what you came away with. Good work on these. My favorite may be the one with your dog in it. :)
