Breathtaking color, great textures! Looks so "otherworldy", Deb...the tubular formation in the b/g and it's colors and reflected light lend a terrific color contrast to the many blues in this capture. Totally amazing and fantastic work! #1325137

Julianne Bradford November 08, 2010

Another incredible, MAGICAL,SPECTACULAR, amazing capture of Zion, Deb! Both went straight to my favorites. The reflected lighting from the "subway" enables magnificent colors and tones in the rocks and in the different blue/greens of the water.
