  Amazing formation & road in the middle of all that flatness!! Very effective POV (where the heck WERE you to be so much higher?) & also choice of background effects.

  Very cool and unusual landscape image. Great treatment in terms of enhancing contrast and colors to make the subject stand out. Was this shot from an airplane/helicopter?
