Fine Art Images from the American Southwest

Shiprock, Sun Star, Northwestern New Mexico

Shiprock with sun star, northwestern New Mexico. This is a large panorama from a couple of years ago. One of my favorite views in northwestern New Mexico. I was able to line up the sun through a fracture in one of Shiprock’s many black dikes composed of igneous rocks. I would have been there this year too, again, the current situation forced us to postpone a two week photo workshop around the southwest. This down time has enabled me to pull some images I hadn’t yet delved into. You can read more on Shiprock and it’s geology here on Wikipedia. Thanks for looking. G

Red Valley, View To Shiprock

Red Valley, Arizona and the view to Shiprock, New Mexico. Still visiting images made a week ago around the four corners area. This large panorama consists of eight images. We pulled over immediately when we saw the shadows passing across the landscape. I really like this view of Shiprock. A little different than the view from a few days ago. Thanks for looking. G

In The Shadow Of The Dike At Shiprock, NM

In the shadow of the dike wall at Shiprock, NM. Ship Rock is also known as Tse Bitai, or “the winged rock” in Navajo. Personally, I prefer the latter. I haven’t ever caught on to the idea of it looking much like a ship. Click on the link below for more info on “Shiprock” and thanks for looking. G
