Beautiful looking spot. wonderful colours. reminds me of remote parts of Australia.
Red Pen: It's amazing how much one spot on the globe can resemble another. I've not had the opportunity to visit Australia, but hope to get there someday.
That is absolutely gorgeous and it looks like an awsome place to swim if the currents aren't to strong, but as it's a man made place it should be fine.

Red Pen: It's a fantastic place to swim. The water is warm, and there are numerous side canyons that are quiet and calm.
That looks like the red cliffs of PEI. My photo today is similar.
Red Pen: Looks like we were on the same wavelength. smile

Like Kay's pic today, it's hard to believe we have this place in our States, Red Pen. We have some incredible things to see in our country, don't we! This pic is so vibrant and rich.
Red Pen: We do, indeed. There are so many lovely places to see.
This is beautiful Red Pen. Simply stunning.
Red Pen: I appreciate the compliment. Thank you.

Great shot and interesting colour. From Red Door to Pink Wall in a couple of days smile
Red Pen: If I cannot travel the world, at least I can wander the color wheel. wink
Wow i love this shot Red Pen. Would love to scuba dive that lake it would be intersting to see what has hapened under water after the fill. The colours are fantastic too.
Red Pen: Some people do scuba dive here, although I understand the water clarity is not ideal.
Wow fantastic colours in this shot - well captured.

Can't believe it took 17 years to fill - with the weather we've been having here in the UK lately it would probably only take a week!
Red Pen: Yes, you're right. We could use that excess water to top off the water in the reservoir and to put out the fires.
Very nice southwestern shot. I like it!
Red Pen: Many thanks, Martin.
What gorgeous colour! What a wonderful capture of the form of the rock, too. I just love it. (:o)
Red Pen: The erosion by wind and water leaves behind amazing forms and designs.
It's when you talk in dimensions like this that one begins to take in just how big America is! The colours are awesome and that touch of blue sets off the ochres beautifully.
Red Pen: I agree, there is truly a grand scale to it, with so much variety between our borders. Thanks for commenting, pixelpixie.
Great great shot RedPen ! Fantistic place very well catched. Have a nice WE.
Red Pen: Glad you like this glimpse of the Southwest.
nice shot here redpen...
Red Pen: Thanks, chacha.
Impressive !
Nice red tones here ! You're very talented about colors !
Red Pen: Merci, mon ami. You're too kind. smile
beautiful red in the stone
Red Pen: Yes, isn't it lovely?
Nice image. I think leaving a small portion of sky in the crop is great as it lends scale to the image. All the best, Dave
Red Pen: As you can see from that bit of sky, that huge rock wall is casting some welcome shade from the sun.
Beautiful colours, love the little sky part you have left in the pic - it really does something good to the red/brown colours
Red Pen: The vivid blue sky is very complementary to the colors of the rock. This is one of the most beautiful places I've visited.
Beautiful shot!
Red Pen: Thanks, polarbear.
lovely, excellent colours...very hdr...
Red Pen: HDR color brought to you by my humble little Kodak. smile
Good shot - I find capturing such a huge object difficult, never know where to point my camera! Thanks for the info, interesting!
Red Pen: This area is so beautiful that a great scene can be captured almost anywhere you point the camera.
Now I like this one.
Red Pen: I'm pleased you like it. Thanks for visiting.
