Call Of The Desert


Call Of The Desert

Even from 25 miles away Shiprock stands like a sentinel in the desert. The monadnock is located in New Mexico and I’m shooting from Colorado. It is one of the iconic images in my mind when I think of the Four Corners country. I find it strange that one geologic formation can have an effect on a person’s psyche. I often find my thoughts on Shiprock for no reason. On our next trip I definitely want to spend more time with Tsé Bitʼaʼí (Navajo for “rock with wings” or “winged rock”).

Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2 for the monochrome conversion.

In the best light…
