I took this during my geology field program, junior year of college. It's up on my wall at home and is the shot that I've always gotten the most "wow, that's the most amazing thing ever..." type comments on, so it'll be fun to see what the DPC voters think.

Not much editing. In the past I've just used it as it was straight out of the camera, but for this I burned the bright part of the sky just a hair, as I thought it was a tad overpowering when viewed on a computer screen. I also used the healing brush to remove some very faint power lines (barely visible so I never bothered editing them before, but some people here are nitpicky...).

The print is available on the copy that was previously in my portfolio...' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/28141/120/137488.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/28141/120/137488.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Beautiful landscape! my only criticism is the blown out sky ... and I would also crop out the branches on the left I don't feel that they are needed.

IMO this is one of the better landscapes in this challenge. It makes a change from the usual sunset or sunrise. Well done.
