Nice image Jim, only another month until I get a chance to shoot in the great west again.

Very nice warm sandstone colors. I like the little table to the left.
It almost looks like an evening shot to me although I know it isn't.


Thanks Craig. Yeah, that table leaning towards the sun was what drove me to this composition, as it appeared to be reaching out to the sun.

Lovely, Jim - I like the contrast between warm and cool here; also the sun seems to balance nicely with the uppermost rocky outcrop.

Hi Lizzie, thanks so much! Yeah the warm and cool contrasts do work well. I am glad you enjoyed it.

That's a great image, Jim. I like how the light reflects off the canyon wall to illuminate the backside of the rock in the center of the frame.

Very nice image. Love the morning light on the foreground and the added depth it gives. Must have been a beautiful morning.

Very interesting image. From the way you composed it, I was expecting shade in the foreground but instead got a warm glow. Wonderful light Jim!

Hey Jim, thanks so much. Yeah, the light in the foreground does help to add depth to the shot, it was a few very cool moments in time I was able to capture there.

Jim, what a great shot!

Oooh, nice shot of one of the lesser known canyons in AZ. One of my favorite places. Some of my better film shots were taken there. Very nice work on the tones.
