… usually I like to shoot Sunset Crater in the late afternoon because the rich reddish colors of the cone are striking and when shot from the west side the collapsed portion of the cones rim gives it the appearance of a heart shaped cone … in fact it is. I took this shot a week or so ago on an early morning flight on my way to shoot Strawberry Crater. Sunset Crater is the most recent volcano in the SF Volcanic Field erupting about 950 years ago. Top of the rim is about 8000’ and I was at 8750’ and close when I took this shot. The near side of the rim is the collapsed portion and above the far rim you can see some of the lava flows and the road coming into the park from SR 89.

Is Google Too Powerful?

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Facebook.FranceLarocheDysTomCarroll311Would it be fair to say that too few people realize how drastically GOOGLE is shaping the way they – actually – we, think? I think not. Given the basics of the Google search algorithm – information is being shaped by public opinion and private opinion makers. This is not news – though the rate at which it’s now happeneing has exploded – increasing at a rate equal to the speed of digital information growth – the “runaway” of all we once knew as normal. This as we who witnessed the birth of the information age are growing older. But hopefully not too old to recall and recomend the benefits of another era – a different, and possibly, a more honest, possibly more truth-filled world.
