Arizona, USA. Rock formation near sunset

Arizona Rock Structure

This was shot 10/7/12 on the road between Four Corners and Flagstaff, AZ.  I thought this the best way to approach the shot considering the time we arrived, sun position, etc.  The sun was very bright, no clouds, no way to get another angle because property was completely fenced.  There was no way to actually capture rock coloration and texture given the variables, not in a wide shot anyway.  Not many options, but I really like the surrealness of it. This is exactly as-shot, with the minor exception of a lens flare I removed in Photoshop.

As always, this and other photos available for sale as prints or in rights-managed, digital format at www.ChiaroscuroPhoto.com

My first post in a couple weeks.  I took a trip to Vegas.  I drove so I could take photos along the way.  I also eloped with my girl while in Vegas.  Kicked some ass at the poker tables too.  It was  a great trip.  Anyway, there should be enough new material to make up for my hiatus from the site.
