The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park's Painted Wall from high above a couple of Augusts ago (8-8-2016) while visiting family that was vacationing in Ridgway, Colorado. I occasionally open the folder full of .raw files and mutter, "meh" when seeking something to process from the archives. It was a family visit and most outings were midday and certainly not geared to favor lighting. In fact, I hesitated to post this because of the heavy processing that was required but, occasionally, I have to share the sights just the same. :)
