This wonderful landscape shows the incredible power of nature. How many thousands of years did it take for the river to carve its way through the rock? And how wide was it originally?
Apart from the breath-taking landscape, I like the contrast between the warm tones in the foreground and the colder tones of the background and sky. I also like the starburst effect of the sun perfectly aligned with the centre of the curve. I have seen other shots of this location and I have to say that this image is one of the most spectacular I have seen. Well done Simon!
