[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rock of Bernal (Peņa de Bernal in Spanish) is the third largest monolith in the world, after the Rock of Gibraltar and the Sugar Loaf. It is located near the town of Bernal, with a height of 288 meters and at 2515 meters above sea level.
It is considered that originated 10 million years ago from a volcano that became inactive. Subsequently the erosion and the time did away with the rest of the volcano, leaving only the solid magma.

Hello Pedro,
This is another great composition from you. Details, colors and DOF are at the highest quality.

Hi pedro, it is an interesting piece of rock!

To remark on the photo, i think you used shodows/highlight or something similar in pohotshop resulting in a light halo around the rock

Hello Pedro,
An interesting and beautiful natural sight to behold. Nicely focused and composed in an eye catching manner. Colors are well saturated and exposure is just right. I have to imaging this is a favorite place for mountain climbers to try and conquer.

Ciao Pedro, fantastic mountain landscape, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Pedro,
Beautiful photograph of this Rock, called "Bernal", against such attractive blue sky. I like the way you have given space in the foreground. Very good details as well as splendid sharpness. Good work....
Thanks for sharing,
