This is fantastic! Those colours look almost unreal, they're so vivid! How lucky you are to have seen this moment and captured it so well !

Thanks for the input tu-quoque. Photography in this area ( The Wave ) is difficult. Limited access, permit required, and lighting is full sun for 4 hours, then shadows ( it's in a gorge ). I have been fortunate to have visited here 5 times and the lighting was different each time. Slide film, polarizing filter, and a rose colored filter produced this image. I have lots of not so nice photos of this area, which shall remain unpublished ( few are very spectacular, most are crappola ). It's what we do. Thanks again for your visit !

Thanks Neil and HotPix. This is a unique area, although somewhat restricted. Many people who do get the required permits never make it here because they either get lost ( very easy to do ) or mesmerized by the landscape on the way in. For those who can make the trek, the rewards are infinite, and you can get some purty pictures !

Very nice shot! Stunning landscape! I should have planned and prepared for the hike before I visited this area so that I don't miss the chance to see them! Like!

Thanks for the visit and the kind words Nakhatarn - Google Earth and Panoramio are fantastic tools for vacation / trip planning if the photos are accurately located .

Hi Tom - the amazing thing is that this shot is only 700 yards away from this shot - a little rock scrambling and canyoneering required to get from point A to point B !
