I love the colours and the way the lines in the sandstone lead to the cathedral like monument. #1380476

Wow - this is stunningly and starkly beautiful, Alton!! I almost feel as though I'm standing there looking at the scene!! :o)

I agree with Kate - the lines in the sandstone DO lead the eyes neatly to that perfectly-lit rocky outcrop feature!! No doubt it looks a lot like a cathedral... ;o)

Wonderful late afternoon lighting and shadows, clarity, colours, composition, and textures!! I LOVE that sky, too, Alton!! Excellent capture!! :o) #1417050
