Hi James. What an amazing place you need to be in the air to get this view. Nature has made such unusual shapes and colours. Not a place to get lost in. very interesting notes again so thanks for that.

This is a fantastic geography lesson in photo and text...Absolutely fascinating.
It reminds me of Old Hunstanton....Albeit on a much lesser scale!!
All the Best
When I say lesser I mean Hunstanton!!

I have never been to Canyonlands but knew immediately this was Utah. It looks very much like Bryce. It is so difficult to get a perspective as good as this in a photo. You captured the colors, details, complexities of this scene perfectly.

You present us what I would define as the perfect posting: a delightful picture, technically perfect, and interesting notes that content many different subjects as geology and history. A very precious contribution.

Nice to see your posting with such quality of the Canyonland from above!
It really looks like a complete fortress well protected! beautiful with those lighting!
many thanks for your effort for sharing such beauty!

A perfect aerial view of a geological formation with quite an interesting past James, your exposure is very good it is easily possible to differentiate between the sandstones, salt beds and the various limestone strata. Wouldn't like to get lost among those formations though...

Awesome shot. I remember Crook's corner in South Africa but I believe this was a bit too far away for our friend Butch.:-)
No,seriously...it's like dried oil paint. It's a very fascinating landscape.
Lastly I like the point of view.

Gorgeous shot James,
When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was Bryce Canyon, but after bringing it up I realized it was a completely different area.
You've captured this beautiful canyon perfectly for all to enjoy viewing. TFS

I think it is only from the air that one can get a sense of the structure of Canyonlands. What a forbidding landscape. Goodness what a long note! It is a lot for my feeble brain to absorb at once. I suspect that you have other photos of the area that would illustrate some of what you describe??? Would you ever consider doing a series of posts of an area. What good geology lessons they might be. Maybe there is just too much overlap of events and it isn't possible.
Once again you managed great sharpness from the air.
Evelynn : )

The intricate maze of cliffs is amazing.
Very good composition.
Very well done,

Hello James, excellent landscape shot, very sharp and with a perfect exposure, it's fantastic! Thanks!

Another aerial shot from you and another stunner :)
This is really a massive geological structure and the shape that it takes makes a man dizzy. One can actually get lost down there…
I think this is the best place you could have photographed this from: you have a good view of its impressive size, you have a great perspective and also a 3D structure that adds a lot to the compositional value of the shot.
Overall, this is a fantastic shot and presentation, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

This birds eye view gave a very good impression of this impressive landscape. Small parts taken form a ridge or on the bottom are nice, but this blows away the compition. Its great to start somewhere and try to follow a single line. After a while you get confused.
