This is the overlook to “El Malpais” in the U.S. National Monument by the same name in western New Mexico. The sandstone cliffs I’m standing on are millions of years old, made of “zuni sandstone.” The valley floor below is coated with 3000-6000 year old lava flows (the black rocks you see below).

Canon 5D MK II, Tamron 28-300 VC, 3 images AEB +/-2, tripod mount, processed in aperture and the photomatix plugin

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!

    I love the treatment and composition. It has a real ethereal feel.

  • Kenroome- glad you like it. I was real happy that the cloud shadows and hints of sun rays were revealed so nicely by the HDR. Thanks!
