    Very dramatic scenery, like from an other world.

    I've never figured out the nearly vertical dark line in the sky to the left of the mound. I believe it was about a 2 minute exposure and sometimes anomalies in the negative with long exposure add to the image and sometimes detract. TerryK

    i like the contrast between the blurry sky and sharp details of the foreground. the line between them looks almost like sabattier effect.

    I've been there many times and would not have recognized this, but it's an amazing image.

    Thanks for the comments. I tried to photograph the main granite structure but found it too massive so settled for some outcroppings at the southern end of the park. TerryK.

    It looks like there is some Enchanted post-processing going also. How did you get the mackie lines on the horizon? Great photo.

    I'm afraid I don't know a mackie line from a madoff circle but I did adjust the contrast in photoshop to bring out the clouds. TerryK

    A Mackie line is an intense highlight around objects. It's quite visible here in the line around the rock and the bush on top of it. Usually they occur with the Sabbatier effect but sometimes naturally and usually with higher contrast subjects. And sometimes in high contrast situations along a horizon line. I suspect the effect here was due to maybe some unsharp masking(?) during your computer manipulations. It's a striking image and would probably make a great print.
