Brilliant shot, Michael.

Saw it the other day, bookmarked your page here so as to not lose sight.

In case you were unawares.. the theme/topic for the current contest running is 'mysterious'.

Your composition and inclusion of the stairs within frame ... feel and mood ... leads me to believe/think it would be a good fit and a strong contender.

/\ Just an f.y.i..

Last words..

+favs for me.

Thanks for sharing this one with us.

It is a standout and simply stunning photography to my eyes. :o)

Captivating golden glowing color tones. I enjoy the contrasts of the rocks, steps to the soft endless horizon. Agree with the others exudes a wonderful mood. Saved.

WOW! I thought for sure this was a computer generated till I read your post. This is really cool, the angle, clarity, and overall quality is top notch. The color is not my choice of color but it is still a really cool pic. Well done!!

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
