Looking back on a promise by wilcowesterduin

The stairways up to the chapel of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe on the Basque coast (Kostaldea) near Bilbao. In a soft sunset light i was finally able to look back on my promise to climb up this magical place! Please see it black, press “H” and “M”.

The Paria Canyon – Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Cliffs Area contains some of the most other-worldly landscapes one could imagine. It takes a bit of doing to find your way back in here as the sand tracks are largely unmarked and any services are non-existent. But the reward for the effort is awe-inspiring. I’ll never forget the night a spent here sleeping on the desert floor under the Milky Way.

A unique view of the tufa formations of Mono Lake, California under stormy skies at sunset. Looks best on black.

Since the water level here has dropped in the past couple of years, compositions incorporating water or reflections are much harder to come by. This left me looking for a frame for these strange towers, and this was what found. I thought the curling wave formation of the foreground, along with the stormy skies, looked pretty SPOOKY.

This image is comprised of several stacked exposures for depth of field at f/22 for the foreground frame (it was mere inches from my lens), one for the main formations at f/16, and one at f/8 for the sky.
