Dead & Deader II

I made this image yesterday on a hike in the Ceja Pelon badlands. The rocks are actually pieces of petrified logs, a dominant feature in Ceja Pelon. We came across one that was close to seven feet in diameter! The place also features a large assortment of hoodoos, and strange rock formations. It’s sort of like being on another planet.

I was attracted to the contrast between the sensual contours of the dead juniper and the hard, crystallized forms of the scattered, fossilized logs. I made several exposures from different angles, and this is my favorite.

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

Camera Settings: f 22, 1/15th sec., ISO 100.
