First of all, fantastic picture!

Lyle, this photo looks like a painting! Did you use any special technique to make it look this way?

Thanks again everyone for the great comments.
In answer to your question Leslie I did do a little work on it in Paint Shop Pro 8. I adjusted the contrast a little and punched up the saturation a bit to make the scan appear more like the original printed picture. Also I removed some scanner noise with the Jpeg artifact removal tool. #1097785

This shot was taken through a 28-90mm USM Canon lens with a Tiffen polarizer filter. I used evaluative metering in aperture priority mode and set my aperture at f11 resulting in a 1/250 sec. shutter speed. The camera was mounted on a Bogen Manfrotto tri-pod at Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah.
