Badlands Monument

Badlands,San Juan-Revsd


The accompanying photo was shot two months ago on a exploratory trip to find Badlands locations for future photographic sessions. I figured I’d return when I could plan more time, and the sky would hopefully feature some clouds. I therefore filed these shots under Location Snapshots. Nothing worth printing in and of themselves.


Recently looking over these files again, however, I realized a subject, and an image, like this one doesn’t need clouds. They’d be a distraction. In fact, any additional visual data would take away from the stunning simplicity, lighting, color and feeling captured herein.


So the part of me that wants to do something to make this image less of a snapshot, and more uniquely mine, is going to sit this one out. I will let this image speak —and breathe— for itself.
