another great scene and its capture from another part of the world. Nicely composed.
Your notes always informative. I like to read them. As you already told, there are two rivers in Turkiye and we say "Menderes" in Turkish instead of "Meander". Two biggest rivers of Western Anatolia are Büyük [Greater] and Küçük [Little] Menderes rivers.
Also several endemic inland fishes called after meander, e.g. Pseudophoxinus meandricus and P. meandri.
Thanks for sharing both of photo and information.

Thank you for your nice comments on my 300th. What a view this is!!!! It is much more impressive than when you see this area on the ground. Marvelous colors of the west - good details - excellent composition. I really love Utah - it's beauty is unique.

You present us a fscinating landscape with amazing shapes, patterns and colors. Pictures like this one remember us how beautiful our planet is. It's not only Canyonland, but also Dreamland...

Impressive aerial view. What an extraordinary landscape with lots of details to appreciate and take pleasure in. Zigzag and fanciful flows of water. That river is indeed snaking its way around the Canyon. Looking at this image reminded me of the Geography lessons I had while I was still a scholar. I envy you about how many beautiful and different places you are able to visit. This is indeed beautiful scenery. Thanks for sharing.

What? You have been waiting for this time to bring out your big guns eh? wow...This is not only something I was not aware of...it must be something many were not aware of..I had not heard of this at all..and llok at how grand you have made it...Fantastic!
Thanks for another illustrated geology lesson. There is nothing like an aerial shot to show the erosion process. I really love the reds and turquoise colors. I tried a workshop to showcase them a bit more. It isn't as educational but I do like the colors and patterns.

The power of water is greatly illustrated in your last two images. I remember flying over this area in a commercial airliner and being impressed by the color. You have captured the color and textures of the different layers and formations incredibly well, thank you.
