The contrast in colors in quite striking with the diagonal flow of the red rock formation creating the illusion, for me, of some exotic creature (a number of your images of various rock formation seem to create the same illusion for me)... perhaps it is their positioning in the image, their distinct coloring from the surrounding landscape, or their textural component.

Wonderful colors. I think the big rock in front might be a bit in your face thing because of the around shape. Maybe stepping back would have been better IMO...just saying...;-)

Jeff, it looks like you finally captured the region's rumoured "Big
Orange Rock Monster". And it even gave you a nice typical portrait
smile. :-)

I agree with Sandi. I like foreground interest, this boulder take a
tad too strong dominant position IMO. Cut a 1/3 from the bottom
improves the POV for me. My question is Jeff are you standing on this
boulder ?

I was standing close but a little behind it. When composing a wide angle landscape I
usually want a foreground subject close enough in the photo that a viewer can reach out
and touch it.

only wish the left side of the sky was as pretty as the right
