"Badlands you gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
And these Badlands start treating us good
Workin' in the field till you get your back burned
Workin' 'neath the wheels till you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts learned real good right now.
You better get it straight darling:
Poor men wanna be rich, rich men wanna be kings,
And a king ain't satisfied till he rules everything.
I wanna go out tonight, I wanna find out what I got.
Now I believe in the love that you gave me.
I believe in the faith that could save me.
I believe in the hope and I pray that some day it
will raise me above these
For the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside
That it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive.
I wanna find one face that ain't looking through me
I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these
--- BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
This image of 'badlands' are located in Caineville, Utah just east of Capitol Reef National Park on Highway 24.

You're capturing well this nature bu a good angle and exellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see both of golden leaves dyed to aytumnal tints and the bare/grey rocks with charcoal belt. It's beautiful color contrast, and the rock is so mysterious.

Another cool burst of Autumnal color, and the striations in the rocks are brilliant, it makes the rock look like a semi precious stone! I like the look of your badlands, very different from what people call badlands here in Ireland, which for the most part is a bog!

How appropriate that this is set to Bruce's Badlands. I really like how the golden trees naturally frame the photo and we have all those marvellous textures of the rockface to concentrate on. A visually magnetic photo, beautifully composed and realised.
Thanks for sharing, think I'll go put on some more Bruce now.
