At the North of Argentina, along route 68, that goes from Salta city to Cafayate city and valley (where are located good vinegars, mainly white ones) there are colorful rocks formations
As usual they are named according to their shapes, such as the obelisk, the friar and this quite adequate “Windows” (Ventanas in Spanish) good description of the landscape watched from the curve going down the route
Photo taken from inside the car, through the windshield

You made a beautiful picture, well balanced and framed. The colors are natural and light too. Great detail and sharpness. One has the impression to be there at your side when you have completed the picture. The color of the rocks vibrate photo.
Well seen and well done.
Thank you for sharing and good weekend.

Hi Maria. Impressive landscape through which it must have been difficult to build a road. I wonder if the window was blasted into that shape. Rich colours and excellent exposure. Regards. Klaudio.
batalay (40201) 2014-03-06 17:31
Despite the photo being shot inside a car, the colors and sharpness are exquisite. I cannot quite make out the sign. Your note, however, is very useful about the area you have shot the photo.

Hola mi amiga,
Hope you enjoyed the show last night. :) This type of landscape looks very familiar to me. When I first noticed this picture in the gallery and saw your name attached to it, I thought you had come to Arizona and didn't tell me!! lol
You choice of title is also interesting. My next thought was that you were making reference to a Windows operating system, because this imagery would certainly make for some attractive computer monitor wallpaper. :)
Super rich, red rustic rocks and a beautiful blue sky make a tantalizing mixture of color and element. An impressive result in both composition and focus, photographing through the window of a moving object is never all that easy...but you've ended up with a wonderful shot. The arrow leads the way, around the bend we shall go! Enjoy the new day ahead. Be good, but have fun. jaja
Cheers from another red rock canyon,

It is nice to see the different part of Argentina that not too many people know. I always think of the green hills and lakes and mountain with snow, but never really associate this kind of brown and red rocks, like the Southwest of the U.S. Lovely shot, that blue sky and white cloud really bring out the warm tone and red and brown of the earth.
emka (105528) 2014-03-06 23:20
Hello Maria, This landscape here looks similar to south USA, like in Arizona or Utah. Also wild red rocks, with no trace of life. Spoectacular place, breathtaking view.

what a wonderful piece of nature and what a superb composition!
You were able to bring out in your shot the whole beauty and uniqueness of this part of the road.
Great shot with really lovely combination of colors-blue vs.rusty rock formations make just magnificent contrast.
Have a nice weekend ahead
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-03-07 6:12
great combination of wonder of the nature and civilization. Very good choice of POV for this scene and excellent colors. The warm light adds very much to the image. Superb sharpness!
Thanks for sharing
saxo042 (37966) 2014-03-07 6:44
A very interesting landscape with these geological rock formations. The road plays a good part of the composition, along with its yellow lines and white arrow. An attractive picture.
ikeharel (77217) 2014-03-07 7:16
A great ddesert scenery over the road that dissappear around the red rocks. fantastic the soli textyure, and the blue sky provided a marvelous contrast.
Intriguing trip around such places, hope you have more shot from.
Buen fin de semana,
Silvio1953 (151627) 2014-03-07 7:48
Ciao Maria, fantastic landscape, superb sky, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
adramad (48980) 2014-03-07 11:37
Sensacional composición a la cual la carretera da un buen DOF, es un paisaje muy agreste a la vez que muy bello, magnificas texturas en las rocas y original ese fuerte color rojizo. El esplendido azul del cielo crea un contraste muy hermoso.
Muy buena tanto la luminosidad, como la nitidez.
Bien visto y mejor hecho.
Que tengas un buen fin de semana.
Mis mejores deseos.
Noel_Byrne (33424) 2014-03-07 11:39
I love the title and your note which explains its meaning, and I love the idea of bill gates stumbling across it :) You chose a really fine composition to have depth from the road, and the colors are really outstanding. Love the whole idea of your capture here.
All the best
lousat (96732) 2014-03-07 12:35
Hi Maria,a great spectacle,no doubts.A very imposing perspective and a great choice of point of view,perfect to create this magic contrast between the red of mountains and the blue of sky,looks like a peaceful place too without cars on the road..ehehe...very well done!Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
ourania (50573) 2014-03-07 12:51
Hola Maria querida,
a straightforward and well considered composition that brings us in front of these attractive and imposing rock formations. The low point of view allowed you to make a graphical arrangement of the rocks against a wonderful, contrasting sky. It also retained the mystery of the road beyond the "ventana". The atmosphere of isolation and the strong light are evocative. The intensity of the colours and the sharp textures show that this place has a special, raw character. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
fabbs99 (17175) 2014-03-07 21:39
Awesome colors and tone in this image of the hilly road from Argentina.Very well captured with good lighting.Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-03-08 1:56
This rock formation has been very aptly titled it really looks like a natural window. The view through the window is great too. The rugged landscape contrasts very well with clear blue sky. Like the composition with the road leading our vision to the rugged mountains in the BG.
Thanks for sharing this remote corner of your country.
ChrisJ (117201) 2014-03-08 3:03
Good density levrels with perfectly exposed highlight and shadow details. Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the red rocks and blue sky with impeccable sharpness and good composition. The road adds nice lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-03-08 7:51
Very nice capture of this rural scene, and this could been taken on any rural roads in the American Southwest the desert are so alike. Good lighting and sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Didi (60590) 2014-03-08 8:55
Une belle vue au couleurs chaudes, netteté appréciable, cela donne envie de continuer sur la route pour découvrir ce lieu magnifique, l'idéal c'es d'avoir une vue plus dégagée en utilisant un grand angulaire, juste pour une image complémentaire en WS
PaulVDV (31907) 2014-03-08 14:59
Beautiful colours of the rocks, especially in contrast with the blue sky.
The picture seems to come from a road movie.
I can image that travelling through this part of Argentina, behind every corner new and exciting landscapes can be viewed.
Best regards, Paul
Cricri (124848) 2014-03-09 11:21
Sublime paysage aride, sauvage, des couleurs et des formes magnifiques de ces roches, bon POV, très belle réalisation
Belle soirée a toi
npecanhuk (77699) 2014-03-09 13:54
Si, esa foto és linda y cuando la veo, tengo ganas de ir a ese lugar maravilloso!
Me gustam, de nuevo, los colores obtenidos, la exposición y la composición!
photoray (13981) 2014-03-09 18:06
Interesting view through your window of Nature's geology in warm brown & red tones, and varying erosion patterns.
This could easily be a scene from the U.S. Southwest.
Thanks for sharing,
cornejo (46076) 2014-03-10 12:43
Hola María, estupenda foto de este bonito e interesante lugar, con bellas formaciones rocosas que hacen un bonito contraste con el bonito cielo azul, buen encuadre y calidad, estupendo y bonito trabajo, mis felicitaciones amiga mía, gracias por compartir.
Buena tarde y feliz comienzo de semana.
Cordiales saludos desde el sur de España.
Angshu (56760) 2014-03-12 3:07
A picture from your country :-)
Window is an apt name, but was the window natural or blasted out to create the road?
The red colour contrasts well with the blue sky...
I hope you were not driving when you took this picture, as you closed on the curve :-)
danos (102500) 2014-03-12 11:57
one more nice scene from the interior of the moving car,of this section of the route 68,with the reddish side rocks to make the image so beautiful and unique.I like the excellent light management as the clarity of the photo.
mkamionka (39803) 2014-03-13 9:45
I have just seen some photos from American Southwest, I guess this Argentinean Northwest offers quite similar impressions. I like very much the red color of the rocks and their extraordinary shapes. Road is always a nice motif on such occasions, you have very well used it here. I like also the arrow. Great colors, very eye catching.
I dream about visiting this region some day along with the Atacama and Uyuni.
Beautiful work from your archive,
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-19 9:14
una foto che per i colori e anche per l'asprezza del paesaggio ricorda il Grand Canyon o i paesaggi del famoso film "Ombre rosse"
Ottima la composizione ed eccellente la saturazione del colore che colpisce l'osservatore senza per questo disturbare.
Una bella proposta che ci aiuta a conoscere molto meglio l'Argentina.
Ciao e buona giornata
jmdias (67941) 2014-03-21 17:28
lindos colores. me gusta la vista desde la carretera.la piedra a la izquierda me parece una persona. hermoso trabajo.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-03-23 6:17
el título es simpático y tiene relación con la señal de la carretera "Las ventanas".
El paisaje que nos muestras aquí es espectacular, me gusta el fuerte contraste entre el color rojizo de las rocas y del paisaje, con el azul intenso del cielo.
Me gusta también la perspectiva aplastada de la carretera con su línea amarilla y la flecha blanca.
Viste muy bien que este encuadre daría un gran resultado, y tomaste una gran foto.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2014-03-24 16:03
Maria, the scenery is stunning and I'm sure that this road leads to more spectacular landscapes!! a very beautiful contrast!!
thanks for visiting me, I really appreciate it!!
mcmtanyel (27994) 2014-03-29 20:50
Beautiful wilderness - I like how you used the road as a pointer to it. The deep blue of the sky vs the earth tones of the rocks makes a very attractive contrast.
omid266 (6750) 2014-04-15 21:03
interesting and excellent image captured within the Car moving,
very beautiful landscape from a far country,
Good contrast , Thanks for sharing,
Buena Suerte ***
gervaso (16599) 2014-04-22 15:23
Estoy de vuelta después de algunos meses alejado de acá. Qué linda foto de esta carretera con las montañas rojas alrededor! Y está interesante el punto de vista, con el camino como que desapareciendo antes de la curva. Muy bello el cielo también! Excelente trabajo!
Miguel82 (27730) 2014-07-27 19:32
Arid area in Salta province, north Argentina Maria, superb ochre hues, very wild place, regards
PiotrF (22458) 2014-09-16 10:52
Nice view from Argentina with combination of the nature and civilization. Very interesting and unique place you showed.
The huge rock is impressive.
I like the atmosphere of picture and calm colors
