These historic rock walls were built by chinese laborers back in the late 1800's to clear pasture land. In fact this wall is just down the road about 1/2 mile from my house. I have always found the interesting. I saw the thunder clouds, grabbed my Circ. Polarizer and headed out to snap some pics. Here are a couple.

If they look familar it's because I took some springtime photos at this location a couple of years ago when the wildflowers were starting to bloom.

Steve,

The first shot is my favorite. They are all beautiful but the clouds and the colors in the first one do it for me.

Your diagonal composition of the wall leading the gaze of the beholderto the perfectly well captured clouds througha vast landscape look great, especially in your first shot... As for exposure, though I cannot see the exif,your third shotplaces first for me!

Thank you everyone. The first picture was my favorite as well.
Bahadir, here is the exif info for you.
Exposure time 1/250
Aperature f/8.0
ISO 200
Focal length 18mm
EV bias -4/6 EV
White Bal. Auto
Circular Polarizer filter used

Here is a slightly wider version of that scene. Two main differences, the increase view of the clouds and the diagonal wall leads to the center of the picture.

Thanks again for the positive comments.
Steve

Very appealing photos, Steve. The wide version of #1 would make an excellent desktop wallpaper for those of us with widescreen monitors.
