[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The high escarpments of red cliff of Kolob State Park are the western part of the Zion's National Park, Utah. The cliffs were especially beautiful on this day because of the recent rain and low cloud formations clinging to the cliffs like ghostly towers. Hope you like.

Hi Miachael
A beauiful scene that you have captured very well. with the ree in the foreground it seems as though the viewer is just coming over a rise and this appears. What a view.
The colours seem natural and he exposure is very good.

Hi Michael,
A very good POV to capture such depth in the mountains.
I like the clouds hanging to the cliffs.
Good light management.
The green touch in the FG is enhancing this presentation.
Well done for this Nature shot.

A foremibable entrance guarded by the eerie mist.


Bom dia Michael,
This is one of those photos that require us to stop and contemplate at length and go discovering its great qualities: a beautiful composition from one POV very good, the dance of light that creates good shadows and excellent DOF.
And finally, a focal point of great beauty and stands on the whole rock observer's right at the bottom which shows good use of thirds.

Hello Michael, I was hoping for more shots from you from this part of the world, and this does not disappoint!
Beautiful natural colours and the clinging mist adding an air of mystery.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Michael..nice shot...excellent composition with great tones and colors.


Hi Michael, a good little peek at what may be hiding in behind those clouds. Even with the focus on the mysterious beyond,the cliff faces show a fair bit of detail. Fiona
