Still enjoying this home run!

I am Thankful that amidst the Anime, Blood, and T&A that there is inspirational celebration of God's natural wonder!

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

A magical place full of mysteries..
Where the sun doesn't just rise.. the darkness simply lifts up with the fog as everything becomes lit..

And I can't help to wonder.. was there really rushing rivers there once? And what a long time it may have taken for all of it to form and the water to disappear..
Makes me feel small in the face of Mother Nature's greatness..
The world isn't just about humans..

:nod: There are rushing waters there even now! That whole part of the American West is very susceptible to flash floods... and most roads through these areas have gates that they close when large rains occur. These areas are posted with warnings: not to enter if there are severe storms and not to drive through any water in the area. Thank you for your comments!!! :nod: :hug:

:-o wow.. now that You mention it.. I do recall a show I´ve seen on Discovery a long time ago about the rains in those parts..
Hm.. I guess for the rushing waters the land seams like a roller coaster, with all the ups and downs and turns.. :giggle: And better not get in the way of Mother Nature´s fun..
:) That scene from Lord of the Rings comes to my mind.. with the waves looking like horses running..

:D Very welcome! Keep up the excellent work! :hug:

I almost wonder if this picture would have caught my eye if it wasn't for the high saturation...

Just wondering, what were you trying to capture with this shoot, obviously you were trying to get something since you took 7 shots.

Personally I would have wanted to capture more of the grandness of that scene by angling the camera up more while taking the shots to get more of the sky and less of the hills in the foreground.

:) Thanks for your comments and for faving some of my work!!!! :nod:

[Actually it is just one shot... the seven exposures were done in Silkypix last week... kind of a last ditch effort to rescue a shot that I liked but had very little detail due to severe ground haze. I did a final crop in CS3 because there was very little info in the sky above the crop.]
