Rock formation in canyon

This is a very exciting photo to look at and lots of people share the same view. Actually when you were there really looking at the narrow opening in the canyon, it was no that interesting. But it turned out wonder. I think the most interesting thing is the texture and feel of the rock face due to its unique lighting condition. And also the couple of plants back-lit by the sunlight add some life into this otherwise very dry and lifeless place. I remembered spotmetering the darker part of the rock face where I want some detail and put it on zone 2. I used f/4 which is not perfect to get everything sharp. But the softness suggests the strong sunlight, which is not too bad or even enhancing this picture. So it will be a sweet "mistake".
