The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada is an area managed by the Bureau of Land Management as part of its National Landscape Conservation System, and protected as a National Conservation Area. It is located about 15 miles (24 km) west of Las Vegas, and easily seen from the Las Vegas Strip. The area is visited by over 1 million visitors each year.
The conservation area showcases a set of large red rock formations: a set of sandstone peaks and walls called the Keystone Thrust. The walls are up to 3,000 feet (910 m) high, making them a popular hiking and rock climbing destination. The highest point is La Madre Mountain, at 8,154 feet (2,485 m). (From Wikipedia)

This is a beautiful shot of these mountains and the menacing clouds that seem to want to swallow them. The colors give s stormy mood to the image and the sharpness is very good.

this is a superb landscape picture. your viewpoint is excellent with some vegetation in the foreground helping to frame the scene. the mountains look incredible, and the low cloud covering parts of the peaks helps add to the mystery and grandeur of the image.

you are presenting a fascinating landscape at a moment with great dramatic atmosphere. You've captured the amazing phenomenon with superb sharpness and precision, the low clouds seem to be really moving over and around the textured rocks. Your upward point of view is very effective, the picture has great sense of depth and wonderful natural colours that together with the moody light set the captivating atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

hello dear Eleu
Another great landscape from you. The mist and grey clouds make this such a dramatic shot and I love the way the colours of the rockface contrast with the greenery and the grey clouds. Excellent shot, congratulations.

Very atmospheric shot, in the middle of nowhere and the raging storm but a geoligic haven of sculptured rocks and canyons loved by artist and shutterbugs. I think this is a pretty rare occurrence here so you are pretty lucky to catch this and nicely splitting this shot 50/50 perfectly showing both sections, how dramatic the sky was that day. Great light and natural colors indeed even when there's brooding skies overhead and it's almost guaranteed that there's gonna be some more drama once the sun dips below the cloud cover. Nice one, Eleu, Congrats. :))
