Each time I see this Pfeiffer Arch, I think of it as a 'window on the California World'. This is a much wider image than I've usually seen ... and it's beautiful, Maria!

Hi Maria - Wonderful to see you back and in such a magical way here...The light and the clouds overhead are so special they speak of your photography! The rock arch is like out of a fantastic epic movie! The colors are superb and the water is just wonderfully done here....There is an old blues song that is performed by many aritists but Taj Mahal seems to have a lock on it in my opinion...the song is entitled: "You Don't Miss your Water (until your well runs dry)" This is what can be said for your absence...we missed it all along, but really it becomes "super evident," upon your return, as to truly how much we missed it....So welcome back and may all the best come your way...you have already provided us with some of the best to enjoy! Cheers.. Denny

Eu i-as zice "Poarta Luminii", dar iti dai seama ca a exista o poarta a Luminii implica faptul ca poarta insasi este intunecata?
La fel de mult imi plac toate peisajele cu momentul bine ales si cu reproducerea pe masura. Nu mai scriu pt. ca mi-e lene, da' sa stii ca le-am vazut.

What I really like about this is how you got the whole rock formation in the frame... I've seen a few shots of this scenic arch on Am3 and everyone goes for the tight crop on the slot... in wide angle in this light - it looks like magical fairy tale locale - very nice !
