Hi, my neighbor,
I see you go on to wonder us by so impressive photos from Utah. Great! This scene looks like a handmade complex. Splendid autumn colors, but I'd like to add some sharpness only.
Greetings from Eagle Rock, LA.

amazing landscape! The shapes of the rocks would be enough to catch an eye, but there is also unusual orange color which sets lovely contrast for the trees in the foreground. Very beautiful weather resulted in here in great light.
Well done and TFS!
All the best

Astonishing rock formations! Also very fine autumnal colours and interesting sedimentation layers. A beautiful picture from the wild west.

Quite right, for once the name is right, I saw a priest and nuns, impresive capture of color contrast and rocks formations with some sparse vegetation at the front
Well done, congrats

A wonderful moody photo with a very spectacular view. It illuminated the red rock perfectly. Excellent work on the composition. The sky looks impressive too.
