About the Image(s)

This is part of the Maquaketa Caves in Iowa, a beautiful place in the fall. I visited this site 2 years ago and have fond memories of it. I loved the rock opening (caused by water erosion?) and the scene on the other side.

Canon EOS 6D Mk II, f/4, ISO = 1,000, 1/200, focal length = 35mm

What an interesting photo! It is like a photo within a photo peaking through the tunnel. Lovely colors and interesting rock formations   Posted: 10/05/2021 10:36:27

This is a really nice fall photo. The colors are really beautiful, and I really do like the composition.

I tend to agree with Kathleen that it is like "a photo within a photo" in that the the rock tunnel frames the view perfectly.   Posted: 10/07/2021 13:56:01

What an interesting shot. Your eye certainly is pulled right through the tunnel to the fall colors ahead. I am wondering if it might be interesting to add a little path of clarity in the forefront to highlight the trail through the tunnel, as well as a little more clarity and brightness beyond?   Posted: 10/07/2021 17:32:41
