[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hoodoos are tall skinny spires of rock that protrude from the bottom of arid basins and "broken" lands. Hoodoos are most commonly found in the High Plateaus region of the Colorado Plateau and in the Badlands regions of the Northern Great Plains. While hoodoos are scattered throughout these areas, nowhere in the world are they as abundant as in the northern section of Bryce Canyon National Park. In common usage, the difference between Hoodoos and pinnacles or spires is that hoodoos have a variable thickness often described as having a "totem pole-shaped body." A spire, on the other hand, has a smoother profile or uniform thickness that tapers from the ground upward.

Hello Chuck,
Great photo, amazing color of the rocks, great contrast with the color of the trees!

Hello Chuck Kuhn,

what a spectacular landscape with great contrast and pleasant depth. Love it ....great land for sure ;) In my opinion the colors of the ground behind those majestic pine trees seems rather optimistic .... ;) slightly ! Other wise ...truly pleasant shot in my opinion!

Nice rich colours Chuck. The light on the red rock looks amost translucent. Very appealing. You framed it well and it's just a fantastic shot. TFS Trevor
