Sands of Time I Like
The background is what makes it for me! That black sets off the color, the shape and texture. Now the curve isn’t the landscape, it isn’t the lens but rather the shadow. Coming through a whole in the mesa behind us, it was curved and what made the whole thing work. Now some little grasses were removed in the photo but otherwise it’s a straight shot. That’s the best kind of landscape photography, clean and simple. If you’re ever heading to Monument Valley, watch She Wore a Yellow Ribbon first and take note of the sand dunes. They aren’t the same now and it demonstrates how with time, they move. I wish I had the time to sit and watch that change with time, talk about a glorious symphony of nature!
