Good lord, woman, don't you ever stay home?

Well, actually, on second thought, I'm glad you don't. What a stunner this one is!

PJ is right Jen. You are quite the traveler but we all enjoy your destinations. This is a very dramatic scene. Rugged and colorful. Great post.

A beautiful capture Jen. It's enjoyable to view from the textures of the rocks to the grandness of the mountain in the background. Very nicely done.

Best wide-angle lens? Two steps backward. Look for the 'ah-ha'. Ernest Haas

jen. This is one of the best pics you have ever posted. I knew it was a keeper as soon as I saw it. From the resolution, you must have used your 5D. Gorgeous picture. It's up on my desktop this very minute. Great work, gal.

I've been there, and my memory of it is every bit as Tecnicolour as your image. This is great Jen - you conveyed the hugeness of the place perfectly, getting down low to include the rocks in the foreground was inspired.
