Another interesting shot - sand dunes and snow-covered mountains in the same shot!
Treatment is excellent as a B&W too!

I like those high dunes and the snow is really the icing on the cake!

Great three-dimenisonality in this photograph - it seems like one of your best!

I'm moving to Colorado! There must be more areas of spectacular landscapes within a days drive of Colorado Springs than anywhere else certainly more than we have here in southern Ontario! Don't get me wrong, I love it here in Ontario. In fact I have show coming up in April of Niagara Escarpment photographs and of course we have the Great Lakes and the Canadian Shield, but - WOW - such landscapes with some verticality just aren't common here.

Yes I think it's your best  :) :)

Thanks very much my friends for your complements!
Tony/Francois..The picture was taken during the kids' fall break. That's why you can see snow.
Chris...I hope you will enjoy your new motorhome and the trip. I will be in Grand Canyon, Monument, Lake Powell in a week and 2 weeks in the Big Island in June. I can't wait!
Luxborealis...I've never been in South Ontario but from what I've heard, it's not bad at all!
Thanks Eric, Julian and Thierry.
Best,
Pramote

It is a fine shot, probably spectacular as a high rez print. A minor quibble is that at this particular resolution the anti-aliasing (stair-step edge smoothing) makes it look a bit rendered as in CGI. Clearly that is not the case it is a great photo. The fine natural detail just looks a bit rounded to me. Maybe it is just me.
