Canyon De Chelly
Another amazing capture of this vast beautiful land. The scale and enormity of this landscape is really mind boggling. What further astounds me is the vegetation growing all over the rocks at the most unexpected places. I am sure that should you ever try to plant a tree at such a peculiar spot, it would die within a couple of days/weeks, but when nature plants it there, it grows abundantly and seemingly uninhibited by any shortfall of soil or nutrients.
Again this composition was masterfully planned and executed to give us maximum impression of the gigantic size of these rock formations. The colours are fabulous, the details are extraordinary, and the exposure was perfect.
Very well done and TFS.
PS. Seems like you did not spend much time with the family, but that you were bundu bashing all over Arizona instead. Not that I really mind as we get the benefit by seeing the beautiful evidence of the trials.
Uitstekende en baie mooi foto my vriend. Geniet jou naweek.

Very nice rock formations indeed. The bushes really help provide the scale of the photo and its depth. Good photo, regards

A majestic landscape very well composed and presented. As loot said, the plant grows in implausible places if Nature is the gardener. Good notes and references too.
TFS, Josť M.
