    This is one of those places that I can't force myself to drive by without stopping anymore. Adds at least an half hour to every trip to Arizona.

    During this trip I was fortunate to meet a representative for the Mohave Indian Nation. This is known to them in their creation story as "Where the Battle took Place."

    I don't think it looks fake, it looks liek there's cloud cover covering up the mountains

    He might be responding to the high color saturation.

    However, I like it.

    Did you use a GND filter? The mountains and sky seem quite dark compared to the very bright and saturated foreground. Certainly looks a beautiful place though!!

    I'm glad that I finally got some clouds in the sky. I've been to this place 5-6 times in as many years and this was the first time it wasn't cloudless for me.

    I like to push the colors as far as I can- Thanks.

    Thanks, this was the best of the day.

    Thanks, and I can never seem to do it justice- I'll keep going back.

    No filter. I'd like to try one sometime. It is beautiful though. This trip I found another view of it that is even wilder but doesn't get the river in it. Maybe this fall I'll do some hiking out there. It's already too hot to do it now.

    Here's another point of view, took the boat out last weekend. Found some clouds and a view from the beach.

    I like it! You pushed the colors alright, and thats a good thing. It has that slide film sort of look to it. The exaggerated saturation gives this a surreal look. Good job.
