The Wave area is rather small and that what most people come to see and therefore it is busy here even though only limited number of permit were given for people to visit, imagine if it open to all. It would be a zoo and the fragile landmark will be destroyed within days.
This was taken later in the day, which was not ideal because the sun was too low and it is all in the shadow, but I like the deep earth tone though there was lack of depth. 5:00 pm, we were the only two left in this whole place there was nothing but the sound of wind. We headed back before it got too dark and we had to walk the last part in the dark with flash light.

hi way. incredible place on earth, a gift of nature to humanity. but yes, unfortunately human is ungrateful and would turn this place into a mess given the chance. i remember seeing a youtube video where some guys were having fun breaking some brittle rocks in there. so, i am happy to hear that only a limited number of permitted people can get in there. i love the pin sharp 5D quality and your immaculate finishing. it looks soooo real and beautiful. have a great new year.

Kamilutka (8095) 2013-12-31 22:44
your photo today is truly wonderful and makes me look at it again and again. The landscape you are showing is beautifully captured from very good POV and the whole composition seems to be well planned. The reflections on the water and bright sky add very much to the wholeness. Great colors, contrast and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
jjcordier (75590) 2013-12-31 23:48
Fantastique photo, d'une beauté à couper le souffle, de ce magnifique endroit. Une merveille!
Je te souhaite, à toi et tes proches, la meilleure année 2014 possible!
CLODO (30044) 2013-12-31 23:55
I like how the water has eroded the stone creating many horizontal layers.
happy new yeay
Subhogen (4065) 2014-01-01 0:52
Your photo makes me ponder what more wonders nature has in store for us. Wonderful natural colors and the contrast between the sky and the rocks is so eye-catching. Excellent composition to catch the reflections in the small lake. Thanks for sharing an unique place, which I have not seen before and that too with great sharpness and picture quality.
Wish you a very happy and prosperous 2014 and hope to see more such wonderful places and moments from you!
cornejo (30592) 2014-01-01 2:09
Hello Way, nice view of this beautiful and interesting place, very well captured in this excellent and beautiful photography. An interesting and beautiful image with good sharpness, nice light and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good day and happy week.
Happy and Prosperous New Year.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
holmertz (40049) 2014-01-01 4:01
You must have visited more natural wonders of the US than most people and your collection of photos of marvellously shaped rocks must be astonishing. Your choice of POV and your treatment of light, shades and colors always seem to make the most of the fantastic sceneries you visit. Like so many times before I am filled with amazement at this view and the technical perfection of the photo.
Kind regards and a happy 2014.
abmdsudi (42540) 2014-01-01 5:05
Absolutely amazing wave rock formation and a kind of surreal and most unusual Your pov and processing shows it off excellently and what I like here, apart from the colour and lines, is the fact that it needs no indication of scale also hard to believe these are natural colours. The wave and curves all seem to converge at one point and this gives the shot a lively feeling of 'movement', the contrast to blue sky is just wonderful. Well the light came good for a short period even without sunshine, i think regardless how many times this place is captured its every shot is/should be different. Your effort, including the hike is well worth it for such a grand scale view like this, a sight to behold !!!!! Another topnotch
Have a great 2014.
SnapRJW (30909) 2014-01-01 6:23
Happy New Year Way.... I hope that it is everything you wish for! What a very beautiful shot, the swirls of the rock formation are wonderfully dynamic and my eyes are constantly swept through the image. Fabulous. Warm regards Rosemary
Sergiom (58617) 2014-01-01 7:01
Cette photo est une petite merveille. Je suis un petit peu jaloux. Tu as su saisir l'essence de ce paysage avec talent et avec une belle technique. J'aime le jeu des lignes courbes et les reflets dans les eaux du désert.
Bonne et heureuse année
ikeharel (55972) 2014-01-01 7:33
Rocks formation in a most impressive view over the desert pond, Way.
Stretched lines as a result of wind and water erosion for millions of years, created a superb sight and intriguing to look at.
Technical-details immaculately collected.
fabbs99 (16163) 2014-01-01 8:58
This is a classic image from the Coyote Butte North to end the year with.Just love the texture and colors of the composition.Very well captured and presented brilliantly. TFS.
Best wishes and Happy New Year 2014,
dta (65644) 2014-01-01 9:50
Hello Way ,
As usual , you present us the most wonderful places on Earth , by the most perfect way . These rocky formations are so amazing . The reflections in the calm mirror and the sky add to the beauty .

Happy new year! This is another gorgeous image. Your skill, combined with this amazing landscape, creates masterpieces. :-) I like the textures and natural colors, and the lovely reflection in the center.

dear friend happy new year 2014
Mics (687) 2014-01-02 1:19
Incredible place and incredible shot! Love the lines that seemingly flows in different directions.
sevy (15359) 2014-01-02 7:44
A soft lightning filtered through the clouds is also working, even if more difficult to manage when shoting.
The crop you did to be less rectangular is giving a well balanced view.
Didi (56249) 2014-01-02 9:45
Fantastic great place with interesting game with lines curves
Very good sharp picture
Best wishes for 2014
lousat (75506) 2014-01-02 15:08
Hi Way...no comment...this is a masterpiece and another spectacular shot in your gallery of wonders,another long standing ovation to you!! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
InasiaJones (31448) 2014-01-02 18:31
I realize how many of your outstanding shots I have missed over the last months... Shame on me!
Your talent is undeniable and the quality is constant, putting you on this pedestal of pro photographer. This isn't a result you can achieve overnight, it takes years to understand what you are doing, to develop your eye and to get the best of any given scene.
Here, I admire the use you have made out of the rock wall that serves as a visual anchor, but that also brings so much depth throughout the image. The colours are beautiful, or rather stunning, simply because they appear natural. The landscape is somehow simple, but taken with obvious meticulousity and artistic flair.
Calm, yes, remarkable, for sure.
Cheers my friend!
danos (85757) 2014-01-03 6:29
the colour tints of the rocks making these fascinating 'waves' make the image so inviting and unique.I like the contrast of the colours, the creative reflections with the excellent light and colour management to enhance the beauty of this area.
I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year,Danos
mkamionka (30212) 2014-01-03 7:41
this is absolutely spectacular. The place is so unique. I really dream about visiting it someday.
Your composition is brilliant, so well thought through. All curves seem to go well together drawing amazing shapes. The water puddle is a great bonus providing the chance for the reflection which you have well used. The clouds in the sky draw some pleasant shapes too.
Breath taking scenery!
Cricri (105215) 2014-01-03 10:55
Une vraie beauté de la nature, fantastique texture et couleurs, bon POV avec les reflets , un lieu qui semble être d'une autre planète , j'aime beaucoup
Meilleurs vœux pour 2014
chawax (19206) 2014-01-03 13:25
First I wish you an happy new year !
I really dream about visiting this place, it must be fantastic for photography. The natural lines of the rocks make great perspective lines that add depth and you used them perfectly in your composition. Colours and sharpnness are excellent. Really a great shot !
willperrett (6712) 2014-01-05 1:33
The lack of light has maybe helped, not only by clearing the place of people, but by giving you flat light, which curiously seems to have accentuated the folds and patterns in the rock, allowing them to speak for themselves as it were. Just gorgeous work, beautifully composed, and technically as well as aesthetically impeccable.
grigand (19483) 2014-01-05 2:17
A great picture, the compo is wonderful and details are excellent, congrat.
SimoAle (642) 2014-01-05 10:05
ho visitato anche io queste zone e so le emozioni che lasciano dentro. In questa terra il rosso a contrasto con l azzurro del cielo è a dir poco favoloso! Ogni foto che viene scattata è bellissima!
Come questa che ci hai proposto...
delpeoples (52999) 2014-01-05 22:41
Happy, happy New Year dear friend! I wish you the best of fun, love, family, travel and of course some naughtiness thrown in, and I'm sure you celebrated in your usual grand style.
I make no secret of the fact that your photos blow me away, but this one blows me away more than usual. What a wonderful symphony of texture and rich colour, the lines all serve to guide the eye around the frame like they're dancing. The reflections, the clouds the textures...all amazing, thanks so much for sharing this rare and endangered beauty with us.
jcpix (13550) 2014-01-06 19:35
This is one of those images that just leaves me awestruck by natures beauty...and the work of the photographer really brings it to life! :) An outstanding shot to say the least, this really is something awesome! The rock pattern/swirl is mesmerizing, I have to think there's a never ending well of photo opportunities. I might have a mental break down trying to decide where to begin!? :) A remarkable photo Way, you've done it justice! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. All the best to you and yours in 2014.
tatadalou (6081) 2014-01-08 12:48
The sun is over but the light remains sufficient to enhance colours of the rocks. Beautiful geological "constructions".
adores (36121) 2014-01-08 16:25
Fantastic shot, with very good quality as usual! I just love the sense of motion we have when looking at this. The colours of the stone are great and I like the reflection on the water also. Another great one to your series!
Kielia (23351) 2014-01-09 9:41
what a fantastic impression of this wonderful region!
This image is a delight for everybody who loves nature. The light and the moody colors make the image very attractive. My compliments also for the notes!
nikkitta (14582) 2014-01-09 14:44
First the note, also I love to stay the last, my great experince was in Pompey, they were closing and I stay alone walking in this dead city od dead, impresive experience, not turist and silence
Not danger at all because I knew the gardians must wait for me alerted by some friend
About your as always original and creative capture, I believe the sun will add stricking contrast, that way,only with the interesting sky, is better for admire your POV and the textures of the stones, waves and waves of them giving a sense of mouvement
Wish you a great 2014 with more special photos
Angshu (55375) 2014-01-19 23:25
I have seen a few pictures from you & a few others from this massively interesting rock structure & yet this is the first time I am seeing the picture with a 'twist'...that with the small puddle which makes this all the more delightful. Did it rain the previous night to create this puddle.
Another superb shot from you!
adidas5nb (5241) 2014-01-19 23:32
a piece of art.....
B E A U T I F U L!!!!!!!!
RhodieIke (11740) 2014-02-04 22:57
This is stunning, love your Pov, leading us in the beautiful rocks to the small pool with reflection, then on to the horizon and gorgeous cloudy sky.
Worth the dark walk back.
Wonderful, one for the magazines.
