Terrific landscape Steve! I like your image design with the clouds and foreground suculent plant mimicing each other. Nice crop, low POV, front to back clarity, colors and light. Well done!!

Great composition! The plant in the foreground -- along with the lines of the rock formation and unusual clouds make this look like an explosion of desert color.

This image is stunning, Steve. The classic landscape formula of including a strong foreground worked perfectly here, and the clouds make the sky incredible - rather than those bald yet beautiful blue skies that AZ can have many days...very well done.
