The Story:

Because of the angle it looks as if I'm up pretty high, but it's an optical illusion.   I was actually at the visitors' center at Acoma, and because of the distance to Pueblo, the angle was slight.    I was using a 400 mm lens.   As for retouching, it wasn't too extensive on this but one thing I did do was remove all the "porta potties".......
