This was taken on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. After living in the city, it's hard to imagine how different life would be in such an isolated locale. Big land, big rocks, big sky, no traffic.

Well - I live in a very isolated area, nowhere near a city or even another small town, but I'm still impressed. Lovely, soft colors ... utterly fantastic scenery. Can you just imagine waking up each morning and seeing this view?

Boggles the mind .... Ria

Thanks for taking a look, Ria! You live in a beautiful part of the country .... and having grown up in a rural area, I'm looking forward to the chance to return to peace and beauty! Take care.

When you need to just get away from it all...
Such an attractivealternative, Drew :-)The monster cloud awaiting behind the 'big rocks' is so impressive! Still you could do even more justice to the grandeur of it as well as that of the rocks and land, simply cropping offsome of the endless skyfrom the top, IMO. After all, you cannotprevent sthfrom being 'endless' by taking awaya few things from it , can you?

Well done, mate!

Bahadir, you are right as always! Here is an edit with some sky cropped. Is this better?

As always, thanks for your advice!

Your images have always been inspiring, Drew And this is a very nice version. Still, you could crop off some more starting from a fraction above thethe little cloud on the left handsideto servemore to our intended emphasize, IMO.

Drew, absolutely fantastic shot, well composed and very beautiful. I hope you don't mind but I took on board Bahadirs comments and also made a couple of edits of my own using levels, just to boost the midtones. Let me know what you think.

Regards,

Matt

Seeing this reinforces my desire to drive through this part of the country when I make my escape from Alaska next year. Those mesas and rock formations are stunning. And the residence in the foreground is a nice foil to nature's wonder.
