The Wave area is rather small and that what most people come to see and therefore it is busy here even though only limited number of permit people can visit, imagine if it open to all. It would be a zoo and the fragile landmark will be destroyed within days. If you do have chance to visit, there is so much more than just the Wave. Do plan to spend the whole day here if you can to venture out further up or down. The whole area is really breath taking and you can have it all to yourself outside of the Wave.
This area is called Little Wave. We went all the way up to the hill in the background to look down at the overall area. The view of the whole area is really out of this world.

those rocks remind me of melted ice: you know..when you have hazelnuts and cream melting away and mixing each other...but it's rock here!
timecapturer (46517) 2012-06-16 1:46
Hi Way ne
love this, such amazing lines and colours. Executed flawlessly and a real quality presentation as always. Superb!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.
HimalAnda (8921) 2012-06-16 2:38
As usual, I like a lot your new picture. The colors (and the contrast between the red rock and the blue sky) is absolutly beautiful and the composition is great because the yellow curves on the rock drive the eye toward the horizon.
ourania (28368) 2012-06-16 2:43
you've captured this amazing landscape from a superb point of view and at a great time of the day that bring forth all its dynamism and elegance and enhance the sense of wonder. I love the beautiful bold and pure colours and the mesmerizing lines that lead to the centre of the frame. The clouds are fantastic too and add to the dynamism and drama of this beautiful view. Congratulations and many thanks!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

jga (1062) 2012-06-16 4:42
Just pererct, these lines are amazing, photo of great quality.
SnapRJW (30078) 2012-06-16 5:24
Hello Way - This is a most spectacular geological formation and I love your saturated colours, such a sight deserves to be show in all its colourful glory. The lines of strata are so clean and crisp and your capture underlines why the formation is called the wave. A mesmerising shot. Warm regards Rosemary
maria-v1981 (10814) 2012-06-16 5:48
The landscape itself is a stand. It is pleasant impression on the lements. A picture of high quality,well balanced and beautiful colours.
Have a nice evening,

Hello Way ,
Not the choice :) ! I must inaugurate the second part of my theme , with this oustanding picture of this fantastic landscape . The quality is exceptional , the sky superb .
abmdsudi (41266) 2012-06-16 8:42
My goodness, this is truly a GREAT picture and to have the good fortune to be able to take this picture and then the technical brilliance to take it as well as this.
You must be very proud of your achievment. What a sight to behold !!!!! Out standing is the word, my friend.

Good afternoon and happy Sunday.

rychem (20861) 2012-06-16 11:01
Fantastic graphism of these rock layers, amazing colors and beautiful contrast between red rocks and blue sky
mmohan (744) 2012-06-16 11:03
What an amazing view! All those lines seem to stretch all the way into eternity. The rocks on the right seem to be look on like passive strangers.
PaulVDV (21165) 2012-06-16 13:02
Wow, what a spectacular landscape!
Very beautifully with the long lines in the rock surface, alternating white and red.
Here we see layers similar to those of the Antelope Canyon (of which lots of pictures have been shown on TE) but now in a wider landscape.
I like the warm colours of this Little Wave under that blue sky.
Best regards, Paul
yquem46 (38382) 2012-06-16 13:13
You really pile them up, these top notch images !
Just gorgeous, bravo
Enjoy the WE, best regards
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-06-16 19:37
Beautiful sandstone rock formation showing these curved lines like waves. The red color rocks contrast nicely with the blue sky. Nice troughs have been formed due to the erosion, A breath taking view with sharpness and depth.
cargus (8092) 2012-06-16 23:48
Spectaculaire composition, de belles couleurs, bien encadré et rendu, image bien fait.!!

danos (84367) 2012-06-17 9:39
Ohh what a scenery! Fascinating the view of this 'wave area' with the clarity of the image to enhanced from the blue and puffy sky over it.
I like the dreamily colours,their contrast as the quality of the shot.Great presentation.
Sonata11 (33203) 2012-06-17 18:59
What a spectacular place. Awesome !!!! this composition of this place is beautiful and you wonderfully captured with fantastic colors, sharpness, clarity. Perfectly well done. Absolutely beautiful. I like it the way you shoot from this fantastic POV. Thanks for sharing.
All the best at the new week,

Wow! That's wonderful! A wonderful place! A magnificent picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are outstanding features here!
TFS - congrats,
sacimar (25975) 2012-06-18 5:33
this is another impressive image of Arizona, the wave is eye catching and you captured it perfectly, it's an excellent shot, well done,
Cricri (103101) 2012-06-18 22:12
Un paysage fantastique, merveilleux, par ces formations rocheuses, ces dessins incroyables sur la terre, les couleurs et un ciel qui s'ajoute a la beauté du paysage et qui est magnifique
Gigidusud (14001) 2012-06-19 7:42
Fantastic landscape with these splendid rocks and a beautiful sky.Great perspective and nice colors.I like it!
holmertz (38665) 2012-06-19 9:32
These amazing features remind me of chocolate and whipped cream spread out among the hills. I never stop being surprised by all the natural wonders you visit and show us with a stunning technical and aesthetic perfection.
ciakgiak (30407) 2012-06-19 14:57
Simply superb! What a splendid landscape you show us!!!
The colors are fantastic, and what a sky!
Congratulations for the excellent quality too. TFS.
macjake (54070) 2012-06-20 8:32
'out of this world' is certainly correct!
wow, what a beauty!
you're lucky that the clouds were co-operating too, as they add a whole new dimension to the scene.
i'm just in awe at the colors and forms.
Janusz1974 (2814) 2012-06-20 9:57
Very nice shot, I love the textures and colors. Excellent sharpness and clarity,good depth of field and nice details.well done.
jemaflor (82098) 2012-06-20 11:16
Impressive landscape, good pov and lovely light and warm tones, bravo and tfs.
lilito (3470) 2012-06-21 0:57
Cette image est magnifique, elle me fait penser aux images de BOURNAZEL au même endroit.
serp2000 (38838) 2012-06-21 3:25
Let me add my compliments, Way,
Just a masterpiece. Just fantastic colours and outstanding graphic. Impressive presentation of the Arizona's landscape.
ACL1978 (7467) 2012-06-21 8:20
A bautiful and clear shot, with extraordinary composition. The repetitive forms of the rocks on the right, the contrsat between deep blue sky and bright clay rock, the clouds which follow the horizon, darkening in the center, the light lines of rock running toward the camera (or away) - and is that a person at left, about a third of the way up? If so, it certainly adds to the sense of enormous scale which is already present. Just a perfect shot.
GREGG (7888) 2012-06-22 13:55
Good exposure, nice light and shadows and colors,
perfect picture, bravo
jhm (136708) 2012-06-23 7:54
What we here see is very extraordinarily, what a relief.
I understand that no people can walk on these wonderful place
You chose a very well angle this gives depth and perspective.
Perfect composition, excellent captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
adores (35100) 2012-06-26 14:49
Surely an amazing landscape!It must be a great feeling to enjoy such a view!I like the colours and textures and the sky is fabulous!
sothy81 (9558) 2012-06-27 5:39
Hi Way, this is a very nice view of this wave area. The color contrast is well captured. Well done. Sothy
mkamionka (29760) 2012-06-28 12:52
this is just spectacular and it is probably the first thing I would like to see if I could pick anything.
The shapes are incredible. The colors as well. Clouds add so much life here and they contrast with the rocky landscape being o fluffy and soft.
Excellent presentation as usual.
Angshu (55035) 2012-06-29 2:49
One of the most photographed places in the last few years from this part of US...we have wall papers & screensavers highlighting, I guess a portion of it where the patterns are most wavy. This is an amazing place, a creation of nature. I laud you for showing us this wider picture of this place, the striations creating a fine wavy pattern in perspective. Excellent picture!
Hellas (6783) 2012-06-29 4:13
Πραγματικά εντυπωσιακό τοπίο!
Φανταστικά χρώματα, πολύ καλή ευκρίνεια και αντίθεση των πλάνων που προσδίδει υπέροχα την τρισδιάστατη εκδοχή!
alpi1500 (1518) 2012-06-30 13:46
Excelent detail and wonderful clouds.
Have a nice day.
lousat (73973) 2012-07-03 9:53

chrisvek (7001) 2012-07-03 15:50
Wonderful shoot and perfect result.It's like a card postal!Very nice framework and details.Do you have used and HDR filter?
Have a nice day
emka (75107) 2012-07-05 20:35
Hi Way, fantastic view of the waves. Jeppo is right that it looks like the ice cream Another wonder from Page area. magnificent presentation. Colors, sharpness, composition all are perfect.
shevchenko (19051) 2012-07-06 2:53
What a beautiful nature site that always attract so many visitors, good pov and good frame to show the unique geographical feature, the grain are clear to see too, distinct image, well done.
Robert1969 (6906) 2012-07-06 3:23
You show that the Nature is the best architect
The lines in this picture are not only
beautiful, they creates also a nice depth
in this picture. About the quality....it's
again a party for the eyes.
JFS (32459) 2012-07-06 9:15
I missed this wonderful shot! An red earth wave that contrast excellently with the vivid blue sky, the clarity of the image is superb. Great composition, as usual!
mvdisco (17676) 2012-07-09 17:35
What a great composition in this lovely landscape,
beautiful tone of colors and light,
an amazing POV. and DOF. with a great sky,
congradulations for his great capture..
brianmcc (6053) 2012-07-10 11:47
what amazing rock formations. the layering is quite unique and helps create a wonderful image. the textures of the land along with the rich red colours contrast wonderfully well with the deep blues of the sky, and the fluffy white clouds.
fotka (3343) 2012-07-12 2:23
Looking at your gallery I see that you like nature because there is a lot of wonderful photos.
You show impressive landscape with the waves of colors.
The blue sky with white clouds makes perfect shot.
plimrn (21344) 2012-07-22 6:31
The stunning sky makes a great backdrop for the red and cream swirls and of course the light is better and of course the sharpness and framing are great as usual.
delpeoples (52777) 2012-08-14 3:26
Hello Naughty BF
Simply stunning, the clouds conspire with those amazing rock formations to produce a photo that should be in National Geographic. Such rich colours and razor sharpness. I adore this photo, congratulations, you're a good boy :)
sacavem (18610) 2012-08-27 2:57
The other TE friends have said all, but I think this photo can bear another two points ... ;-)
fabbs99 (16147) 2012-09-17 2:01
Thats a beautiful image of the wave.I do not how they are formed but they look ao bright and sharp.Great composition.TFS.
fritzi007 (3487) 2012-12-11 5:41
was für eine Welle, wie eine Autobahn, mit wunderschönen Farben, danke fürs schauen!
fds (7502) 2013-04-27 4:18
dear way lim this picture is very fantastic with super warm colors and fantastic light

great schot with great scharpnees
Didi (55537) 2013-04-27 4:34
Interesting different colours between reds and yellow.
Good natural sculpture done by the winds
tatadalou (5883) 2013-05-05 8:11
Great colours and light ! I suppose the use of polarizer makes this shot more stunning than it should be without. This geological landscape looks so unreal, Earth is really full of marvels.
olive224 (2719) 2013-05-10 7:16
I planned to go there in august 2012 but we could'nt ! I can now understand why photographers like arizona and utah !!
These landscapes are amazing and your image is once again very well executed.
The light management is insane !! Is it a multiple exposure shots combined in one image ???
CHeers and congrats and TFS !!
smash2707 (3320) 2013-09-09 14:45
Nice POV for a great perspective. Amazing light and beautiful colors, amazing sharpness. What can I say? Great shot! Regards
ChrisJ (95174) 2013-10-18 5:17
A nice double juxtaposing here of firstly the hot cs cold colors of the red rocks and blue sky, and secondly, the contorted, wavy patterns in the rocks contrasting against the uniform cloud patterns in the sky. Good sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!
pajaran (49662) 2014-03-01 22:02
Dobar tekst o mestu, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa oblacima, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija i trenutak sa svetlom koje je istaklo lepotu mesta.
Proroda stvara lepe predele i boji ih najlepsim bojama.
Imajte lep dan za odmor, sve najbolje.
A good article about the place, a nice view and a second ...
Good time recording, sharpness, contrast and perspective, nice place and shown the moment the clouds, beautiful colors.
Good composition and moment of light that pointed out the beauty of the place.
Proroda creates beautiful landscapes and color them the most beautiful colors.
Have a nice day to relax, all the best.
jcpix (12574) 2014-07-13 11:10
First off, I sincerely appreciate your previous response...it's good to know there is some comfort within the TE world. Losing someone close is never an easy thing. I hope I wasn't in the wrong by mentioning it here.
To your photo, what can I say other than 'impressive!' You are fortunate to have been granted access to this beauty, and certainly took full advantage of the opportunity. Seeing your pictures really inspires me get out on the road and head North once again...but it's far too hot right now. :) Rich colors, stunning natural formations and sharp detail...you nailed it! And to think, most people think waves only exist in water!? Enjoy the rest of your weekend. take good care.
Cheers from next door,
