Another view of Ship Rock in the northwest corner of New Mexico.
One of the annoying challenges about photographing Ship Rock is that there are a lot of power lines along the side of the road which always seem to be in the way. It's not so bad along Highway 491 going south out of the town of Shiprock because the power lines are fairly close to the road and it's fairly easy either get lower than them or walk out into the desert to put them behind you. However, when you turn west off of Hwy 491 onto Red Rock Highway the power lines are way away from the road making Photoshop a more viable way of removing the power lines from your photos.

magnificent picture of this amazing rock. I like the opposition between the grass in foreground and the rock in background. The depth is very good too. Congratulations.

I like the vertical frame,
colors and warm setting sun
makes nostalgic atmosphere end of the day, gives the impression
as if something had ended and did not return the next day ...
I have such feelings, I like this...
