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

On The Shiprock Dike, Northern NM

On the Shiprock Dike, Northern NM. Great views abound from this location at Shiprock. Great skies all the way to the San Juan Mountains of Colorado in the clouds. This photo was from a week long photo tour last May. Hey Ron, I’m still going through images. 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

Grasslands At Shiprock

Grasslands at Shiprock. Horses grazing in apparent contentment which reflects my mood and infuses my spirit when I gaze on the monumental formation known as Shiprock ‘sailing’ through the grasses on the Navajo Tribal Reservation in the four corners region of north western New Mexico.
