Classic Wave Portrait



  • Title:  Classic Wave Portrait
  • Description:  Talk to geologists and they'll use words like "diagenetic coloration" and "stratigraphic relationships" to explain its colors and stripes. They might dumb it down and tell you that the Wave is made of Jurassic-age Navajo sandstone 190-million-year-old sand dunes turned to rock. Stacked one atop another, the dunes calcified in vertical and horizontal layers. While being eroded by wind and water, these layers are the ones that Artwestimage captured on the morning of November 24, 2007. This image, a favorite of mine, was taken at 10mm, F4, 1/250 sec. !SO 100, Nikon D100 camera with10-18mm lens.
