Forecasted rain and storms held off for the morning enabling me and my fiance to take a day trip down to Wichita Mountains NWR in southwest Oklahoma.  We hike a trail that took you a small canyon known as 40 Foot Hole.  The area is popular among rock climbers and there was a few small groups out when we were there.


All taken with the Canon 7D, EF-S 18-135mm STM at ISO 100.

#3 is the one I like best as well.  It's because it's clearer to me what your subject is and what it is you want me to look at.  Nice leading lines and lovely colour and texture.  You might consider bringing a little more blue into the water.
