    I lived in the town of Stone Mt. back in the mid 80's. the laser light show was pretty cool back then. Just for perspective, if I remember correctly a 6' tall man can stand in the mouth (if he can get up there:confused: ) of the lead horse's mouth. It's a huge carving.

    Funny, I was just talking the other day with some friends about Stone Mountain. I, too, lived in the area in the 70s and 80s and loved the Pink Floyd Laser Light Shows (with some beer and a bucket of KFC chicken.)

    We were all laughing about how hard it would be now to get a permit to carve 3 (Confederate?) generals into the largest piece of exposed granite in the US.

    Might I add, Aero, that is a lovely photo. I don't remember seeing that much detail in the carving in person, but of course, it was dark when I was there and my vision was blurry.
  4. There is a nice dramatic moment in the laser show when the horses start running. Very cool place to be in Summer evenings. Great to do a nice hike to the top of the mountain.

    Nice shot, I really like the way the lighting brings out all the subtle details in teh carving and in the mountain itself.
