Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
Formations: Geological Wonders
There's no question that massive rocks and formations are great photographic subjects. But rather than just show an interesting large formation, like the sweeping vistas of the Grand Canyon, we're looking for the details, those shots that use highlight and shadow to create abstract forms from among the mass of rocks. We're especially interested in the play of light around those forms and how it alters the picture possibilities throughout the day. This photo was made at the Bisti Badlands in New Mexico and was oversharpened to give it an even more surreal quality.
