[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I received a suggestion from maleentjeh that the trees and brush might be oversharpened. After viewing the photo on a larger monitor than the one on which I edited it, I agree. So I have reposted with the brush softened a bit. Thanks Marleen! Original note follows:

A flash flood watercourse cleaves the wall of a wilderness canyon on the north slope of Navajo Mountain, creating overlapping folds in the Navajo sandstone.

Navajo, Kayenta, and Wingate sandstones comprise the Glen Canyon Group of strata and are characteristic of the narrow, sinuous, often overhung canyons of the Colorado Plateau. In the shade of the canyon walls, the low, warm, diffuse light bouncing off sunlit cliffs contrasts with the cool diffuse sky light to create dramatic color shifts and soft sensuous shadows. The ever-changing twilight provides a full day of wonderful photographic opportunities.
