This is a great shot, it is shuch a shame it got disqualified, still a winner nevertheless. Like you commented on my photo, apparently we were at the same place at the same time...I had tons of photos of the upper canyon but didnt want to use them, and used one of the lower instead. Good work.

Its not fair. There is a geology challenge, and you live near the canyons, while I live in Ontario canada... not exactly the geology capital of the world ;)

Great shot... I hope to visit your neck of the woods eventually.
