In The Middle Of Somewhere

Another image from Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah. There is a never ending supply of delightful surprises in this magical place. This image was made in a little side canyon that is situated at the north end of the main wash. There were a number of these flat rocks with a kind of marbling from erosion on their exposed surface. Common sense tells me that all of these wondrous forms are simply the result of millions upon millions of years of weather, but another part of my intellection considers it all an enigma. In post processing I desaturated and darkened the sky to add some sense of that mystery to the image.

Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikon 17–35 mm f2.8 zoom lens, circular polarizer, Bogen tripod.

Camera Settings: f 22, 1/20th sec., ISO 100
