From a recent trip to Arizona in June of this year.  Smoke from 21 wildfires contributed to some pretty crazy colors.  Such an fun place to explore with a camera.

Canon EOS 5dmIII, 70-200mm @ 200mm, 1/1600 sec, f/8, Mode: Av, Metering: Evaluative, Exp comp: +1/3, ISO: 800, AF mode: AI Servo AF.

Hey, you never know when next minute is your last! So enjoy life.

Wonderful layers Christoph. Just the right amount of details, and a good opportunity taken from the wildfires. Something good came from something not so good?
Make your life spectacular!

I like how this almost looks like a woodcut-wonderful layers. Too bad it was caused by smoke from fires...but it's still an excellent image.

Very nice layering. If it were mine, I think I'd bump the contrast ever so slightly to make the foreground layer a bit clearer and than tailing off to the haziest layer in the back creating even more layering effect. Very nice as is though!

Grand Canyon with fog is always eye candy. It creates wonderful layers. Great capture!
A great photograph is absorbed by the eyes and stored in the heart.
