The sliver of blue sky looks excellent against the red tones of the rocks in this canyon, and the trees give a great sense of scale too. This really Looks like a wildly beautiful park.

Desert canyon with a fabulous view of the rocks in layeres, Ray.
Autumn colors already prevailed, but some green is decoratig the slope.
Clarity and light well managed, depth onto the trough is well collected.
Have a nice weekend,

I think the landscape you are presenting is truly amazing. The orange rocks provide interesting background and the shrub bushes soften and lighten up the whole composition. The colors are saturated and light well managed.

Happy New Year to you dear Rayster, may 2014 bring you everything you wish for. I love the way you framed this, with virtually no sky, and all earth and rock. Wonderful colours and textures, a stunning photo that I hope is up hanging on one of your walls.
Cheers to you and yours
