I was't sure if it was real or not...but it is! What a beautiful photograph.

@bluechameleon: Oh yeah, it's real. Although I love them all, I think that Bryce is my favorite of the National Parks; going down below into the hoodoos is an extraordinary experience. Thanks for your kind words, Sharon.

Marcah from Quincy, United States

WOW !! Like Sharon said. Wasn't sure if this was real. Excellent work

A great "point de vue"... A little bit unreal by these contrasted colors and these incredible textures.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Such amazing landscape and terrain, i can see why its one of your favorites, the towers of rock are fascinating

18 Jan 2009 1:53pm

@JJ: Every time I go, my breath is taken away. You need the early morning light to get those particular colors.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Breathtaking view, incredible colors, an amazing place to experience and capture. I had to take a second look as it had me guestion at first if it was real.

18 Jan 2009 2:06pm

@Barbara: As I told JJ, you need the early morning light for those colors. You don't have a very big window for shooting. This was shot at a 210mm focal length.

Shirin Moosavi from Tehran, Iran

This is such a surreal atmosphere! The view is terrific. And such a great job on capturing these stunning cloros!

this looks like a detail from a giant dessert - icecream and chocolate. I really like the echoes and contrast between the shapes and textures, and the light infusing it all.

I'll echo everyone's thoughts here -- this is such a surreal image! I wasn't sure what I was looking at on first glimpse. I can only imagine how gorgeous is was in person. OK, Bryce, Zion, Sedona... lots of places yet to visit...
