Kevin - Some of the best composed and exposed shots I've seen of Arizona. I have to ask if you're shooting film or digital. Enjoyed your selection a lot.

Going by the satellite imagery a lot Mars looks like that. Same colour too. Its going to be a great place for photographers when it's finally opened up for tourists - imagine the Grand Canyon, only 10 times bigger!

Fantastic scenery and beautiful picture. I wonder why the sky is black? Greetings from Moscow Vladimir

The background for this image is black because of the location of this incredible feature. It sits on the south side of a canyon, and in the winter when the sun sets, the opposite side of the canyon is in shadow. This creates dramatic contrast and really brings out the feature without anything that can distract. One issue we had after we took this shot is that we had to hike out in the dark 3 miles, but it was well worth it. Thanks for all the votes and kind comments! Kevin
