One of those places on this Earth that I yearn to re-visit. can you blame me ? It is like being on another planet, all those weird shaped rocks, Buttes, Mesas, the gritty dryness, the intense heat of the the mid -day sun, the way the light changes……I fell in love with this place !
I got up early for this one, not that I could sleep anyway knowing this place was outside of the motel where we stayed !
This is the land of the Navajo, and I sat inside a Hogan, where I watched and talked to a man making some jewellery. Very fine work. We solved the problems of the modern world in a very short time !
This DOES need to be viewed larger to appreciate the details !
I scanned this from a Fuji Velvia transparency, on a Nikon Coolscan V ED, edited it in PS CS3, cleaning up with the spot healing brush, and a little noise reduction. I also employed just a tad ‘Orton’, which I felt enhanced the ‘grittiness’ of the amazing desert.
Shot on my secondhand Ricoh KR10 super. f11, with polarising filter. I cannot remember the lens !
