It was 10mm, I got a new 10-20 for this trip and wanted to test it a lot. Yea it wouldn’t be allowed on earthporn because of the bag, but I posted a few others to earthporn that did qualify.

It’d be so nice to be there. Nice and quiet. Thanks a lot for taking this picture and sharing it!
That’s way cool. It’s like a real life version of a ‘store’ from Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros 3, or Castlevania 2
Thank you for the kind comment but I did not take the photograph and can’t take any credit for it. The photographer is Murtaza Mahmud from Flickr: https://secure.flickr.com/photos/voyager_/

Tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of tourists go there every year and you almost never hear of any incident. The crime stats are high but the numbers aren’t really relevant for you as a visitor. It’s the same as in the US or anywhere
As an American who doesn’t have many castles, am I right in understanding “Abbey” means it’s for monks? But it looks like a castle…perhaps it started out as one?
Seems a little underexposed. I would try brightening it up a bit, tone down the vignette, and add a little warmth back in. Make it more inviting to look at. This feels cold, and I assume that wasn’t the intent? Nice composition though!
[On the contrary, some might say it makes the view even better!](http://i.imgur.com/Y20wzEa.jpg)
So much penguin poo. It took months to get the smell out of the clothes I was wearing.
Thank you very much. It’s a HDR picture. I took it with a NIkon D600 and the great 14-24mm ƒ2.4 lens. I’m not sure about the exact exposure times, I will have to look at them in the original files.
Thank you! I’m new to reddit! is there a way I can upload it easily or must I repeat the process onto the subreddit. Thanks!

haha, you sent me to the middle of the pacific ocean. If you go into streetview at the location, you should just be able to copy the url and paste it. It updates with every movement. edit: nevermind, something was weird, but I copied
Ignore the little black line on the far right, it’s a chip in my window. Took this while driving and it turned out surprisingly well. Next summer I’ll actually pull over and get a better shot as there’s also really cool vines wrapped around
This was at Meteor Crater, AZ (very close to flagstaff and Winslow). If you are ever in the area you must stop and look at this. The sheer size of it is humbling.
4 months and not a single comment, eh? I think it’s gorgeous. The muted colors add to the stark quality the looming clouds gives it. You resisted the urge to oversaturate despite the weather and instead opted to maintain the austere quality. I really
Fog kicks ass. When I walk home from university on a foggy night, I always run into photography students setting up their tripods in the middle of roads. The atmosphere is so laden with… nothingness. It’s amazing.
“…where the wind comes sweeping down the plain” Can confirm. It comes sweeping down. A lot.
I’m glad you get the same feeling. I decided to take a random drive outside of Oklahoma City and it brought me down a very long gravel road with no one in sight. I stayed for 3-4 hours and watched the sun set. Will
this is gorgeous. would love to see the same shot with a gray sky after a new snowfall. thanks for posting this
I’ve never seen the view in the winter. I’ve often thought about taking seasonal photos from that spot.
You know, I think you may be right! It was my first time visiting the area so I may ha e gotten things mixed up! Plus we had been in the car for 12 consecutive hours by the time we hit Grand Junction, so
