    Looks like sun is running away from you, trying to hide behind that rock. What did you do?

    Good one, Gato. Man, there's nothing I hate worse than having to deal with computer and/or software related problems. I'll pray for you.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Contrast of the horizon and the rocks is good and the nice sun adds a great deal.

    What a capture. The rocks are cool, but the sun with the clouds banding across is what makes this image IMO.
    The Rocks may have been the primary subject, but the sun steals the show.
    @Stumblebum is right, The composition could use some help, unless you were unable to reposition yourself, The sun would work well Balanced to the left.
    Otherwise Awesome.

    THANK YOU everyone for your comments...all are appreciated!!

    I agree with the better positioning....HOWEVER....

    unseen here is the restraining railing over which my tripod is draped/positioned and tied (zip tied to the railing). Just left of this railing is air and about a 1/4 mile drop off into a canyon. Gotta love USB tethered cable releases.

    When setting up for this shot, I tripled checked all bolts, screws, ties and connectors on my kit and tripod. I figured I would receive zero sympathy from the local NPS ranger had the kit slipped off into the canyon. Probably would have gotten a fine for littering.

    The setting sun anchors the image IMHO, the rocks were the objective. Given the time of day, a setting sun, late Sept., and a sky choked with smoke from the west coast fires, the natural filter made for a must take photo. Trying to set up the tripod and camera far enough over the rim to get a full shot of the sun as it set behind the rock face was a bit dicy,

    Thank you again, everyone!
