|Canyon de Chelly|
Snow last night .. I thought it would bring out the highlights. It's rather high here 5,500 ft, and arid. On the top of the platue all I have seen are Pinon Pine and Cottonwood grow on the canyon floor. This is one of the longerst continiously human inhabited places in North America, It's Navajo Country. There are neumerious Cliff Dwellings some that had 100s of residents petroglifts adorn the walls,. Sadly I can't post them here. It was cold and crisp with a stiff breeze, but well worth the trip.
From a Raw image, no crop and some sharpening.

Very strange view; that specific orangeness combined with the whites of the snow.

Great landscape image with that special touch, SNOW. I am tired of our now. You miss the ocean, while you work in Arizona? The colors and scene captured are great Scott, thank you for sharing.
Sous la neige, ces canyons restent grandioses .
Et ce décalage entre les couleurs chaudes de la terre et le saupoudré de la neige donne un beau rendu
