    Barry's nice shots from Canyon de Chelly enticed me to go back to my stash of shots from that area yesterday and I found this capture that I never processed. I was struck by the formations of Canyon de Chelly as a worthwhile photo destination even without the backdrop of the Ancestral Pueblo ruins and the legacy of the canyons to the Dine' (Navajo). If I were to revisit I would make certain to get a private guide who would allow me to stop for landscape shots wherever the urge struck. I took a group tour on one of the tour trucks and could only wish I had some input as to where we would stop so I could shoot.

    These are the uplands above Del Muerto which is the northern arm of the canyon complex.

    C&C always welcome.

    Edit: New version with rocks cloned out as per Jameel's suggestion.

    Nice take on this place. Haven’t had a chance to visit yet. The scale of this place is overwhelming.

    The cut off rocks in the lower left corner would benefit from cloning out.

    Thanks - Good call on cloning out the rocks in the lower left. New version added above.

    I like the edit Alan.

    Yeah, it's too bad there isn't just a little more freedom in that cool little place.
