So we're even neighbours today, I had seen these formations on your previous image reminding of the US west, but here with this foreground water there's something telling it's from another place, the reflection is nice and the contrasts still there.
Have a nice day JY

That is one impressive piece of photography! Sharpness, reflection and beautiful colors...
Thanks for sharing

I like very much this one. The bright colors are excellent, and the POV from the little pool, to capture the reflections of these singular formations, is very good. It makes me realise that I have no idea of what looks like Saudi Arabia. Apart the Mecca and some veiled women, what do we see from it? Often not much more... That makes your contribution even more remarquable. Congratulations

An amazing desert landscape, with great warm sunset lights, of a place which is not common to see here in TE.

a fine composition, the reflexion, the saturated and contrasted colors make it to a good picture!

Wonderful desert colours. Beautiful rock formations with beautiful reflections. The composition is good with the diagonal line of the waterfront.
Best regards, Paul

This is a well composed shot with the nice reflection providing depth and balance for the shot. The lighting and colors are fine with excellent sharpness and DOF. The red sand and stone are contrasted nicely by the deep blue of the sky and reflection.

It's a fantastic image of the unusual landscape which is made even more dramatic knowing it is from Saudi Arabia. You've made excellent use of the still water to capture the reflections so perfectly. I'm aware that Saudi had quite a bit of rain recently, so more than likely this water is pretty temporary. Great colours and clarity throughout. Well done.

beautiful! Love the reflections of the rocks in the pond. Well seen and composed, great contrast and perfect presentation. Looks like a nice place to take some pictures and you suceeded in doing that!

excellent photo, I like a lot the combination of fiery red of the stone formations and clear blue of the sky and water, you're lucky to have captured the moment when the effect of the fascinating formations is doubled by the reflections. excellent clarity, every detail is crisp and clear, and I particularly like how you have used the edge of water to lead the eye through the photo. very nice work, my compliments.

Amazing scenery, The blue sky and the water pool make this flaming needles stand out beautifully. Really impressive shot.

Another excellent shot of this fantastic place. What is amazing here is that you included the puddle of water. in such a place that it must be very rare and therefore so refreshing to see. Not only that, you place it in the foreground to cast the reflection of the stratified pinnacles rocks formation. The quality is great with perfect sharpness and clarity, well managed and beautiful light and adequately saturated and contrast colors. Excellent works once again and thanks for sharing with us this special place.

jonathan_hart (21276) 2008-11-19 9:01
excellent technique, the colours are great, and so is the subject even if there was no reflection :))

Those amazing sandstone formations & their reflections creates a nice view. I also like the contrast between the warm colours of the earth & the cool of the water. Technical quality of the shot is excellent. Good work!

Amazing rock formations I've never seen before, Harry. The place seems to be impressive for what I've seen in your other photos of this place. Reminds me a bit of southern egypt too.
