I'm just marvelling at the very noticeable strata on the rocks there Frank - wonderful!
Frank L Croston.: This was one of the most unusual places we visited, Chris, it was remarkable. Another of it tomorrow.

That is an amazing sky, love the lines on that rock. I bet there 'came down' a lot of water...
Fabulous mood here.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Astrid, I bet there was a lot of water coming down, fortunately it stayed in the distance.

Ooooh this is SO atmospheric.

What an amazing band of colour round the base of the rock structure
Frank L Croston.: This place was like another planet, Anne, and with the storm in the distance it was great to be there.
Wow, if that was mashed potato this could be Close Encounters Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha...Brilliant , Andrew. smile
Somehow that amazing rock and that stormy background come together to give this shot lots of great atmosphere.
Frank L Croston.: It was even more atmospheric being there, Brian, with the lightning in the distance and the 'other planet' like rocks, a quite amazing place. Another view of it tomorrow.
Reminds of that 19th century English artist, whose name I forget at the moment smile Joseph Wright of Derby.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom, I looked him up, he was new to me, and I see what you mean...I may sue..smile
Scary clouds... but great shot.
Frank L Croston.: They were, fortunately the rain was way off in the distance, thanks.

Stunning. What a wonderful sky. So it's Utah somewhere.
Frank L Croston.: If I remember correctly, it is not far from Big water, where we stayed the night, just outside Page.
