A few years ago, I took the Amtrak rail out of Denver to San Francisco.  That took us through the Rockies (absolutely gorgeous!), the deserts in Utah and Nevada, and finally through the Sierras in California.  This presentation is thus inspired by those imposing multicolored bluffs and spires and outcrops.  But it hardly does it justice.  I truly love the terrain of the American Southwest.

Oh heck yeah! Only issue I see is possibly stretched/blurry photo texture (the cracks), that also does not appear to have any real dimension (i.e. actual 3D cracks). I'd suggest a procedural alternative if you can manage it. Otherwise a great image though.

Hm - I see what you mean about the cracks.  They are procedurally produced, but I may have the Color Adjust a little "tight".  They would have more softness at the edges with more difference between the black / white levels.  I will have to look into that - thanks!
