Looked familiar! Was it off the main road on some kind of a one way loop type of deal?

Yes. There is a big parking lot with an overlook there. It's the easiest spot to shoot from which means its crowded but the views are out of this world.

But a short walk away from the crowds means you can get something different and a clean angle with no people...it surely is not a spot to pass up....it is an incredible viewpoint.

A little known fact...Often folks think the big pointed rock formation is Zabriskie Point...when in fact, Zabriskie Point is the viewing area, Manly Beacon is the rock formation that everyone is there to see.

Wow!

I need to get back there and see Red Rocks outside Vegas and DV again; That Valley of Fire was shockingly wonderful!!

Interesting paving on that rural road.
Is it ancient? A lot of work would have gone into that.

I like the light highlighting the long grass in the foreground of the top one

Yes, a very old cobbled road on the edge of the town near where I live. It used to lead to an old mill/factory a couple of centuries ago and has been left in its original state. The road is a couple of miles long, so a lot of backbreaking labour must have gone in to making it. How times have changed. I'm down there most days with my 5DIV or 80D and am looking forward to Spring when the insects and butterflies will be back there in force. Lots of picturesque wild plants thrive there, too, and there is a fishing lake, too, for bird pics. Thanks for your comments. It's very satisfying to know someone on the other side of the world is interested. Thanks again.

The top one was at the Valley of Fire state park in NV; Rainbow vista trail... had to do some exploring to find, but not that difficult honestly; It's well worth spending a day there as it's got a little of everything, just try to go off season during the work week and NOT during Christmas break (there was a billion people).

The bottom photo was in Zion off the east side Road past the tunnel but still within the park... I don't remember exactly as there's a ton of spots to pull over and photo from.

Excellent captures! I love to see the use of telephoto lenses to capture details in landscapes like these.

The second one had some amazing, unique textures, but I personally feel it's a bit over-exposed, and not quite sharp enough. Was it taken hand-held or with a tripod? I wonder how it would look if it was taken with -1/3 or -2/3 stops, or with reduced highlights in PP.

Just my humble opinions. Please do not take as a criticism.

Yeah it was a bit hurried shot, kind of one of those jump outta the car, fire away, jump back in car as the light was fading away. Handheld, so gotta love the IS on the 100-400 II; One thought/challenge is that it's like our eyes see at 50-60mm, so I tend to find the wide angle look annoying in a lot of cases, and the telephoto just makes it so easy to isolate, compress and mess around with scale/perspective. I've not glued myself to the tripod, but eventually when I can get my hands on a nice landscape setup, then I'd put more effort into that kind of shot in warm light. This one was actually shot in really flat conditions, plus, I have an 8 year old NEC PA271w that needs to be replaced.

I actually LIKE criticism, it's how we grow, and become the best version of ourselves, so any/all feedback should be taken as a gift, not negative. That's how I look at it atleast!
