And a new painting

I've been on a painting jag the last couple of weeks, after a long dry spell. Here's one from one of my photos taken on a recent trip to Colorado.

It's a six by eight oil.

I've really been looking closely at my compositions, and trying to do little compo sketches before working. This one is a combination of a tunnel, and maybe compositional lines that lead to the center of interest. Has only four or so main masses, that's a good thing. I think it's missing having enough darks in it, though. I need to make a note of that for next time.
