This is taken at the same area as the previous post just a few miles up the hill. The Wave area is rather small and that’s what most people come to see and therefore it is busy at the Wave, even though only limited number of permit people can visit, imagine if it open to all. If you do have chance to visit, there is so much more than just the Wave. Do plan to spend the whole day here and venture out further up or down. The whole area is really breath taking and it is a geological wonderland. You can have it all to yourself outside of the Wave area like you can see here. We had the whole place to ourselves, you can hear nothing but the sound of the wind as it passes through.

I've been to many places in the western USA but I realize that I still have almost as many places to discover, just like this one in AZ
Perfect exposure and color saturation, compo and image definition
Another great shot, but are there poor or average posts in your gallery ?

Glad to see your fantastic photos again. Another masterpiece! Outstanding postcard from Arizona! This is very beautiful but dead land. Excellent combination of the red stones and the blue sky! TFS!

Most members of TE who had seen a place like this and managed a photo of this exceptional quality would rush to post it. You have such a number of marvellous natural sceneries that you can afford to keep it in your computer for more than a year and a half. There's not much point in commenting the scenery as such. I can only hail another masterpiece from your camera.

Hi Way Ne Lim
It's amazing how you can surprise at every photo you upload...
This one is a top quality landscape, with a fantastic depth of field and almost a 3D volumetric image
It's truly unbelievable what you can do, what makes the difference between 99.9% of photographers and you ;)

Une composition d'excellente qualité.
ktanska (24626) 2013-06-20 12:00
I wonder if anybody could show this landscape as well as you. Not anyone who's still active in TE I think.
Rugged landscape from a location that is not familiar to me. This must be very far from main routes as there's no one around as you mentioned.
fds (8138) 2013-06-20 12:48

nikkitta (14668) 2013-06-20 19:15
You are incredible good with landscapes, waiting for clouds to disappear or like this, to be present, to add contrast at the capture
Like also your notes, like a touristic guide
Greetings, congrats and TFS
kwekwekan (1052) 2013-06-20 19:42
Sure glad you decided to wander out a bit - you teach us much about how to create a great image even when not shooting the main attraction! Wonderful light and saturated colours.
siudzi (33121) 2013-06-20 21:57

Hello WAy ,
One more time , I have to place this picture in my favourite landscape . What a view ! The quality is also so excllent that it is a pleasure to admire . I like especially the colors and the polarized sky and clouds .
ourania (30379) 2013-06-21 2:39
a magnificent natural scenery, your composition is artistic and you have captured both its geological interest and its immense aesthetic value in an excellent way from the rewatding overall impression down to the finest detail. Textures and colours are absolutely fascinating, the gradation of light and shadows is mesmerising. The colour of the sky and the definition of the distant clouds are stunning. Your note enhances the vividness of our perception on what standing there is like. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
timecapturer (48146) 2013-06-21 2:47

Angshu (55413) 2013-06-21 5:33
Another fantaisc post...I wonder whether I ever can take a landscape picture like this! Its not easy to compose, I'm sure. But you used the play of light & shadow excellently! The blue of the sky contrasts well with the red rocks...the clouds are almost 3D. Wonderful as always!
fabbs99 (16163) 2013-06-21 11:11
Another mind blowing image by you from Arizona.The wild wild west is truly wild but certainly beautiful.A very peaceful scene and a well taken photograph - TFS.
kabel (1661) 2013-06-22 8:19
Hello Way, this is spectacular. Excellent composition. The colors are great and the geology is the real star. There are so many wonderful places to explore in the American Southwest. It looks a lot like The Valley of Fire in Nevada.
Didi (56395) 2013-06-22 10:23
Magnificient natural site
Good sharp pictures
The far storm clouds gives an interesting agrement to the sky
abmdsudi (42768) 2013-06-24 7:54
Another amazing geological treasure. This is just brilliant and i am always fascinated by clean textures in the strata taken from a good angle revealing the absolute beauty and the extensive scale of this landscape. Full of subtle colours and lighting with deep blue sky and clouds create a striking contrast as an extra bonus. A quality and mouth watering shot indeed, my congrats. TFS.
Sonata11 (33225) 2013-06-24 20:12

the whole reddish mountain scape view is so fascinating with the brilliant light of the day to enhance the details,as the beauty of the place.
I like the contrast of the colours,as the clatrity and the charmy of the scene.
Cricri (105543) 2013-07-03 13:18
Un paysage d'une grande beauté, sauvage , aux couleurs fantastiques, contraste merveilleux avec le bleu du ciel, magnifique
adores (36371) 2013-07-06 14:42
You have a really great series of these places! Beautiful view and light! Colours are perfect - I like the tonalities of the rocks and those little white clouds crowning the mountains. A very good shot!
mkamionka (30222) 2013-07-30 4:57
spectacular landscape. I love it. The extraordinary colors, shapes, rock formations. Everything topped up with a beautiful sky nicely decorated with pleasant coluds. Another masterpiece of yours.

It's a delight perusing your gallery with so many top quality images to select and here is no exception. Good sharpness, well composed, a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and red rocks, and interesting repetition of geological formations in the rocks. Tfs!

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Interesantan tekst o mestu, sa opisom ...
Dobar snimak i perspektiva, lepo pokazano geolosko cudo, lepe boje i beli oblaci.
Surova priroda a ipak lepa.
Nice view and a second ...
An interesting article on the place, with a description ...
Good shot and perspective, nicely demonstrated geological wonder, beautiful colors and white clouds.
The harsh nature and yet beautiful.
All the best.
