    A nice little scene in Fruita, Utah, which is within Capitol Reef National Park.

    This is really nice, Jeffrey. I like the Phragmites grasses in the foreground and the nice light.

    This is sweet Jeffrey, and a view we seldom see in a photo. I know that location pretty well, but have never visualized this scene. A specialty of yours, having watched you at work. Good job.

    Nice work with the composition and I do like the patchy light.

    My wife and I used to go to that area of Capital Reef every spring when we still lived in Utah. VW Vanagon days.....

    Nice job -- I like the different textures between the grasses, trees & cliff. And the light cooperated nicely for you, too!

    Nicely seen combination of elements here. Makes a very appealing composition.
    The grasses balanced against the lit trees with the reds in between. Sweet!
