Mind-bending Landscape of Arches

Landscape Arch in Utah. A bit of Rock History: (YABBA-DABBA- Doooooo!) "Today new arches are being formed and old ones destroyed. Erosion and weathering work slowly but relentlessly, creating dynamic landforms that gradually change through TIME. Change sometimes occurs dramatically. In 1991 a rock slab 60 ft long, 11 ft wide, and four feet thick suddenly fell from the underside of Landscape Arch, leaving behind an even thinner ribbon of rock. ...In UT's Arches, the minimum (size) consideration for an arch is three feet. Possibly the longest arch in the world, Landscape Arch measures 306 feet base to base." April 27, 2009

Landscape Arch

Hey Icarreau,

Love the reds and greens, but it is the shape that caught my eye... fantastic composition. The sky is a bit saturated for my taste, but the red tones under the arch make for a very nice contrast to the background blue. This arch reminds me of the Starship Enterprise! Or is it one of those Clingon Ships?

Re: Landscape Arch

Well ... perhaps I CAN correct the sky, with
all this technology I have at my fingertips.

Excuse me, I was checking to see if my
computer was turned on.

Give it all you got, Scotty!
Ladies and Gentlemen, please set your phasors
to STUNNING ! Fascinating ...

Let's not forget 'bout THIS ONE.
