Artist's Description

Still going through my negatives…
This shot on Kodak T-Max 100 ISO and scanned to digital on a Canon FS 2710 negative scanner.

The location is Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. These tree trunks are among the remains of a massive pre-historic forest which covered much of the western US over 200 million years ago.
Through flooding with waters high in mineral content, the wood cells over these millions of years were slowly replaced by stone making them even harder than granite :-)

The austerity of the location is awesome, with only a few scattered remains of what was once a flourishing landscape of trees and flora.
Kinda makes me wonder what Brussels is gonna look like if the price of petrol keeps going skyward…

Canon EOS-100, 24-80 mm at the wide end.
