Had a busy work schedule these past couple of days, so just took a moment off to work a little on this picture of rock formations in Saudi Arabia about 50 km outside Riyadh on the way to Mecca before posting it. It is 10.30 at night here in Riyadh while I write this little note.

I posted the first picture of these curious rock formations a few days back.
Hope you would find this one too of some interest.

Thanks for looking and regards to all.

Hi Ram.
Next your amazing desert view. I like its rich colour tones and excellent composition. Sharpness and details of the rocks are great as well as the delicate colours of the sky. Lovely shot taken with love to those places. My compliments and TFS.

Otra bella vista de ese imponente desierto Ram con el contraste de colores tan agradable entre las erosionadas formaciones y el cielo siempre soleado.
Buen punto de vista en conjunto con el encuadre elegido.
Saludos... Ricardo

Another beautiful view of that imposing desert Ram with the so pleasant contrast of colors between the erodes formations and the sky always sunny.
Good point of view together with the elected framing.
Regards... Ricardo

Hello Ram,

Lots a erosion due to the hash climate...

Excellent compo., the red sand and cliffs agains the blue sky.
What a shot, it warmed my cockles. AND it brought back many many memories! And those are good to have in the cöld winter here.

Salaam! Abu Jason.

Hi Ram,
Not been desert a lovely and confortable place, I admit this landscape is beautiful itseft. Contrasting this kind of landscape with this one, one can realize how different things can be.
Best regards, José M.

Hi Ram,
I'm happy with this close up of your previous post!
We can enjoy all the forms and textures of the rock formations in this mountain.
Very good exposition to appreciate this warm colors against the blue sky.
I like so much the way you composed it and frame used.
Congratulations, thanks for share it with us and best regards,

Hello Ram,
I like this POV, composition, colors and details very much. This is the kind of scenery that I will never see in my country :) The contrast between the rocks and the sky is so beautiful. Yes, I think this is much interesting to look at. Well done! Thanks,

Hi Ram,
I missed this one. I just love the texture and the colors of the sandstone rock and the way it contrasts with the soft blue sky. A wonderful composition with the great flow. Details and clarity are superb.

if i could be anywhere just now it would be there..or some other desert
i like the timeless feel of this shot and the blue sky suggesting a lift of spirit..
the american indians have a saying..only the rocks are forever..and we get a glimpse into the past by their shape and form

Hi Ram,
Nice arid composition, details portraited of ancient rock layers are excellent. Simple but excelent composition. Colours and time exposure are superb.Good work
