Taken at The Wave in Page, AZ. See this image to see the scale and more original color of this beautiful place. Also check out this gallery for a few other pictures from the trip (lots more coming around August 6th).

I'm excited to see where this ends up since it's barely scoring in the 7s right now (posting in via more details for Critique Club), but unfortunately I'm going to be gone from Friday, July 27th through August 4th hiking 50 miles in the Olympic National Park with my family. I've sent in validation early in case this makes top 5.

I don't know what this is, but it's cool. It looks like a landscape, but it's too perfectly banded for that. 8

This place is in Southern Utah isn't it? I've always wanted to visit this place. If it's not Utah, I still want to go there! Very cool: 10!

The composition, color and exquisite detail make this photo stunning. I would have liked to see more variation/gradients in the color values to bring out a sense of movement. No doubt this one will land Top 10 at the very least. I'm not voting this challenge, but wish you Good Luck!

Great rhythm here. Nicely imagined and captured. It feels a little too sharp and a litle over exposed. But that's just an opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great abstract, but what is? could be some desert area or more simply something in macro. great colours and interesting shapes for the waves.

Spot on for the challenge. Wonderful organic curves and shapes - mineral or vegetable? Either way I love the texture, composition and colour; excellent work.
