These rocks are so great. How were they formed? Such nice angles and colors with the orange and blue ^^

@kitty: Wind erosion is the main force. Water is also a factor and freezing and thawing would help, too.

Peggy M. from somewhere in, France

Un titre exceptionnel et une image superbe également, quel bel endroit, de voir ces manifestations de la nature en vrai, doit être quelque chose de fantastique.

Odd structure... by nature?

Don from spokane, United States

The eroded features look so fragile, but they are persisting for such a long time. A great example of the power of nature.

Sunder from Chennai, India

lovely formations...
Like the texture , lights and shades..
The "plate" at the top looks sort of flimsy...Is that so or are they sturdy ...

8 Sep 2010 5:06pm

@Sunder: Parts of some formations become very thin and break under the force of gravity.

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

I couldn't imagine a more complimentary sky to that beautifully illuminated foreground. Perfect.
