Natures turn…….

Another Look

ACT_3830webhIt was getting late in the day as we drove down a stretch of road.  It was a nice drive but didn’t have that gotcha landscape look.  We pulled into a little off road cut.  It offered some high rock formations on both sides of the road.  A railroad ran parallel next to this road offering some interesting possibilities.

As the sun started setting I looked down the cut road.  The colors on the rocks along with the sandy red soil were starting to come alive.  Some were through photographing but I felt there was a good possibility of it getting better.  Instead of putting up my gear I chose along with a few others to prolong leaving.  Shortly, as the sun began to set it brought a warm glow to the surrounding area.  Others who had misjudged hurried to set up and make some captures.  Another look became a photo moment.

    Beautiful shot David. The starburst really makes the shot. Good work.

    Love the shot. I agree with Tim on the starburst. What really made the shot successful was how you used the road coming in on the right to bring the viewer’s eye into the frame. It led right to the starburst sun, and then made me look around the frame at the rest of the photo. Where was this one taken…Canyonlands?
