|MONUMENT VALLEY MITTONS
I had been taking pictures for over an hour and was ready to pack up and leave when this scene began to unfold before my eyes. With the setting sun at my back, the shadows slowly swallowed the foreground, snow, and rocks. The most prominent mitten was still bathed in the soft evening sun, the old juniper in the foreground reflecting that same light. The distant sky would soon turn as pink as any sky I have ever seen.
This vista is comprised of five separate frames stitched together. They were taken with an F-stop of 28 to ensure an infinitely focused depth of field. The final rendition is so large that I created a trifecta comprised of three 30x40 gallery wrapped canvas prints which are designed to hang together. The affect is stunning.
