Looks like a monument, Frank...perhaps it is making an escape from the valley...
Frank L Croston.: Could be,Ray, it wasn't far away...smile
There are lots like these in the valley...
Frank L Croston.: It is similar in some ways, Larry.
fantastic shot, Frank. the proportions are quite obvious once you look at those buildings.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ayush, yes it really needs the buildings.

Ahh - I can see some MINISCULE houses down there!
Frank L Croston.: Tiny people live in them,Chris.
This was an amazing find, wasn't it! I love your image, with the little houses- perfect in B&W!
Frank L Croston.: It was great,like a' little', Shiprock, thanks, Elizabeth.
Now that's a big back garden.
Frank L Croston.: No room for a shed, Bud...smile
That's them Americans for you, everything has to be bigger grin
Frank L Croston.: I'll take the fifth on that, Bill, I want to keep my visa...smile
That's impressive, as long as you don't try to start making models of it from anything you can lay your hands on. Nice close encounter Frank smile
Frank L Croston.: I had to think for a moment there, John, " Elizabeth! Make some mash potatoes! " Thanks, John.
The buildings give the scale. Very good shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Mary.
stunning capture in B&W
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chantal.
I've seen the wagons go past there in numerous westerns, Frank smile
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Tom, that's what is so great about seeing these places for real.
What a brilliant picture and what a monolith. With the houses in the foreground, it puts the size into perspective.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Suzanne, I took a few shots of it,but the houses give it scale.
That really is a spectacular rock.
Frank L Croston.: I thought something similar, Brian...smile

Looks fabulous even in B&W (Not my favourite for landscapes [shock! horror!]) but works very well here; the light is mazing.

I immediately thought of Shiprock at first but then noticed the differences; no houses at Shiprock being one of theme. I had to Google for the location and then realised I've driven past it several time - obviously either asleep and just keen to get to the Valley!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, It is like Shiprock,except for the height, still most impressive though,you drove past it! smile
Most impressive,great subject for B&W
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Martin, some things just seem to suit b/w I find.
Great picture!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Hollie.
