    The starkness of b/w really brings out the beautiful contrasts of the glyphs and the land.

    Nolan, are you essentially facing west here? If so, those would be the Sierras in the background. Regardless, this one superb composition and a sterling black and white conversion; with great tones and contrasts. Well seen, and captured, my friend! Cheers! Chris

  • no in this shot I am facing North East. The volcanic tablelands run pretty much right up against the side of the White Mountians. Thanks for the comment Chris :)
