This week’s Friday Photo takes us back to Moab, and one of the collection of petroglyphs that can be found in the area. These prehistoric artifacts are under attack by the elements and the ravages of time. Worse, they’re also vulnerable to criminals who deface them for souvenirs or with graffiti. This one, on a wall above a stream, is largely intact, but we’ll never know what the rest of the tale says.
This week’s photo is from a trip a few years back. There’s an old Liberty ship that ran around off the coast of Lanai in Hawaii. We were there on a slightly misty day, and while the color images are amazing (especially a large panoramic shot), I really like the eerie feeling that you get from the black and white version.
I’m still working through my recent workshop and shoot in Moab, processing the files, and discovering some new gems. Often at sunset you only have a few minutes of the perfect light, and this was no exception. If I’d have taken a couple of steps father forward, I’d have missed the branches encroaching on the bottom left edge, but might have missed the shot. I bracketed the scene, then processed this as an HDR to capture the broad range of like that I saw.
