photography from the ground up

Organ Yucca

Another one from my archives. This photo was made while I was visiting my daughter Susan in Las Cruces. The clouds looked as though they were crawling over the Organ Mountains. I drove out into the desert East of town until I found a good spot, and set up my camera and tripod, and made six exposures.

I also made a landscape (horizontal) version.

I’m still trying to decide which one I like best. Any thoughts?

Equipment: Nikon D200, Nikkor 17–35 mm zoom lens, circular polarizer, Bogen tripod

    …Go with the vertical, much more epic and focused.
