Castle Valley Ridge

The ridge forming the eastern boundry of Castle Valley catches early morning sunlight along its entirety. The ridge has a series of named formations atop it, from left to right: Castleton Tower, Rectory, Priest and Nuns, Mother Superior, Convent. Beyond Castle Valley Ridge and also bathed in light are Parriot Mesa and Porcupine ridge.

Wonderful light on the mesa, Bob. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, David. I spent the night at the base of Fisher Towers so I could make this shot across Richardson Amphitheater when the morning sun first hit the ridge while the valley floor remained in shadows.
