This view of the Alabama Hills shows off the details and textures of Nature's geological artwork.
Located off the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range at Lone Pine, off California Highway 395. The Eastern Sierra is a world away from LaLa Land, Hollywood, Friscoe, etc...

A wonderful landscape presented well with a good perspective.
I assume it takes a lot of effort to explore this rough terrain.
Best regards, Paul

Like a scene from another planet, or indeed another time as the first thing I thought I seeing the foreground was dinsosaur eggs! The play of light and shadow between the rocks is fascinating, and it was a great idea to include this sliver of sky, offering a beautiful burst of color to the earthy view. Delighted other you are writing for national geographic, delighted but not surprised as your passion for your country comes out so well in your images and notes.

Except this is in Californication. The rocks seem so familiar to me, very similar to the coastline of Tasmania in good ole Oz. I love the vertical frame and the way you've played with the light so subtly. That warmth is so very attractive. Thanks for sharing and I congratulate you on your Nat Geo article and wish you the very best. Good onya!

these rock formations are stunning and your presentation in a deep, vertical frame is rewarding and interesting. I like the succeeding layers of rocks leading us through this unique scenery. I think that they evoke movement and look like petrified waves. The textures are sharp and the play of light and shadow fascinating. I like both the warm tones and the cold contrast of the sky. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
