😯 WoW, Nikki. I could stare at this for many hours. I love to look at the sedimentary layers as each one has a story to tell us what happened. #1725742

The extended depth of field is a real wow here, Nikki. And the beauty, of course, is breathtaking. #11767498

This is one of the most realistic and outstanding captures and presentations of this view that I have seen and I have seen many, in addition to standing there myself. The exposure, natural tonal values, colorings and textures are all working together perfectly here to present this beautiful scene in all its majesty. Very well done, Nikki! #11767537
