The rocks look good, but the sky is even better, adds real drama to an otherwise static scene, love it

The colors we see depend a lot upon the ambient light, and yes, when I took the shot they really were that color. A few minutes later the sun (and clouds) had moved and that super-saturated color was gone!

never seen it glow quite that much even at sunset. sorry - not trying to nitpick/be anal, just thought this shot had some postprocessing done on it. either way - artistic license IMHO.

No offense taken. All I did was crop a bit - nothing else.

Shots like this - and they're few and far between - are why I keep my camera (Nikon D80) handy most of the time. Getting a dramatic photo like this periodically is one of the things which keeps me outdoors so much.

thanks for the patient answers Mike. Indeed the shot looks a lot better on my laptop screen. Very nice catch (esp. like the sky). cheers.
