castle ruins? by ariseandrejoice castle ruins? by ariseandrejoice
well not really... this is Bryce Canyon in Utah. These formations are totally natural, a result of erosion. This canyon is huge, and it is absolutely filled with these awesome and whimsical shapes called hoodoos. What fun to walk around in a totally natural yet seeming fantasy land! The colors were sheer delight.

I have tried bring this photo as close as possible to portray my actual visual experience of this place. Processed it first as an HDRi, but found it was no longer communicating my experience. So, this is minimally processed, just a little tweaking here and there... hope you like it!

Leda this is beautiful. You should do it as a HDRi also.
