    Rainbow Basin Natural Area is a geologic unconformity. Simply put, it is where the knot was tied that holds the desert together :wink: .

    Wow. This last one is ever so cool with its purple tones. And the geological particularity of this part of the desert shows best in this last one, too, with the different layers sticking out of the ground at this angle. None of the other ones makes it this obvious.

    Thanks you two for not letting me phhhtttt,... into obscurity.

    I agree with you LaFoto about the last shot. The scenery is very radical out there and I didn't post much of it. The second shot shows a little bit, and is my favorite, because the light came through the creosote bush and seemed to line up with the broken quartz and lined up with the strata on the hill making a nice curved line running through the shot. Something about it just seems flat though- I'm not doing the hdr stuff right yet.

    Thanks again,
    -Walter, over and phhhffzzzt...
