    GREAT composition here. I love the many components and leading lines.

    Thanks Garrentee & William. It's a wierd little area- plutonic remnants of Pangea from what I understand. I'm going back in the fall with a 10-20mm lense and have some fun with the light at sunset.

    Really nice, and absolutly disgusting (in a good way) you found giger on earth there. The only thing that would make it better is if the front rock had been lighter or redder in real life to bring the thrids out more. Love it.

    Thanks Mohain. The network of formations and narrow passages around the arch have the same effect.

    Thanks Tim; I looked up Giger- Wow. Reminiscent of the old Heavy Metal magazines I used to enjoy and found influential.

    Another artist I found fascinating in Heavy Metal went by the name Mobius. So I looked it up. How cool. It wasn't who I was looking for, but I liked learning about the Mobius Strip.

    -Again, wow. I'm starting to drift.

    Looks like I'm getting to where I'm going. :thumbup:

    I really like this one too Abraxas. I love the lighting and comp. You say this is a arch illusion... so... this was not an arch?

    It is an arch. But from this angle, without any sky blue visible, it took me as more of a hole in the sky where the rock came pouring out. Seemed illusive to me. That and I have a horrible time titling photos. :)

    Thanks. I've been trying to include light in my compositions lately if that makes any sense.
