Hello Tamás, and thank you for your visit! This time of day, going into shadows, makes everything look interesting. Greetings, Ryan

It sure is Gerry! You can't tell from the photo, but there are also hurricane force winds that blow sand in your eyes, and clouds of gnats that fly in your nose. The plus side is that the gnats don't fly in strong wind, so you only have to suffer one at a time.

Beautiful... the lighting here is perfect. Really makes the photo stand out a lot. Also, love the contrast between the red rocks and the blue sky

Ryan Calhoun on July 8, 2008

Thank you Rafael. I was very happy with the light here, and I'm happy you like it.

Oooo, first thing I thought of was it looks like a shark's mouth! Great white, of curse! The shadow looks like a shark menacing!

Actually, if one looks closely at the tree to the left, you can see the branches bending one way. So, that is the reference for the wind.

Can't get enough of the blue, western sky!

You're right, Kim! It really does look like one of those shark exhibits in the museums where you can stand next to the open mouth with all those teeth, and see it's taller than you are. :)

Wall Arch has collapsed!

Apparently no one saw it happen, but this landmark of Devil's Garden inside Arches National Park, Utah, collapsed sometime between August 4th and 5th, 2008.

See the article here.
