Beautiful and captivating Alex! Congrats on the POTD.
outstanding image. one of the best I’ve seen
A beautifully moody image
A river on the ground and another in the sky; well done!
This is my kind of shot – love it!
May I ask the expisure details?
Mesmerizing and just truly a beautiful pic!
It doesn’t look real. It is a picture like I’ve never seen. The rocks look striated. It’s beautiful.
Beautiful shot of the Milky Way and the river and the canyon. Also very much enjoyed your slide shows on your web site, just incredible photos.
This is absolutely mesmerizing, Alex. And so is your whole portfolio. Just gorgeous!
I do believe this is the best scene of the Milky Way and earth combined this person has ever gazed upon. The river in the depths of the rock faces, the rich deep tones in the rocks and then that burst of light in the heavens is mesmerizing. This is magic Alex.
Moved up to my top favorite! Well done.
Beautiful and magnificent! and then you see the tiny efforts down by the river -it’s people , and all their clutter- hotels, boats,….aint we small!!
John, those are just rocks in and around the river. Very barren down there, and the whole scene is probably not as large as it may have looked to you initially.
So very gorgeous! I agree that the degree of depth you have created so skillfully is amazing. Fabulous image.
