    In Arches National Park located just outside Moab Utah, there are towers upon towers of rock to find there. This is one such area. If I recall I think it is in the Garden of Eden area but I could be wrong. This was taken this last summer and I really liked the wind swept clouds.

    All comments are welcome,

    I agree, the clouds make this. Would also make a nice B&W.

    Definitely liking the clouds in this one and some nice formations below with contrasting colors. Much more interesting than what Arches looks like with naked skies.

    Jim... you read my mind! I actually did a quick test conversion to B&W and I liked the look of it, but I put it off to finish this but I intend to do a B&W version.

    Those rocks are just stunning against that sky. I really like the color. Also anxious to see the b/w.

    Fun shot - for me the way that the rock formation seems to point along the prominent cloud line makes it surreal - love it!
