I'm going to have to stop naming images after letters of the alphabet, if only because I suspect 'R' is going to be a tricky one to find.

This shot is a good example of why, at least for me, it's a good idea to wait a while between capturing things and making images from them.

The original composition was square (imagined square) and at the top of the curve there's a small, natural cairn (probably a pretty large natural cairn, come to think of it - this is a long way away from where I was standing at the far side of a lagoon). When I first processed the image it was pointed out to me that it would be better without the cairn; and it is (I think). I'd not left long enough after capturing it to be objective about the best way to use it and I'd naturally put the cairn in.

There are lots of nice, curvaceous details on the slopes of the Andes but this was one of my favourites.
