Cracking Up

I debated over what image to post today, but in the end, this shot from the badlands in Drumheller won out. This valley in southern Alberta contains the most alien landscape in the province as far as I’m concerned. Huge cracked mounds of sedimentary rock litter the valley, showcasing the various layers of rock and clay that have been exposed through millions of years of erosion. Truly a marvel.

That’s some interesting landscape. It looks like a big bob of clay ready to be molded.

Great choice with the UWA lens man. Really accentuates the shape and size of this rock. Love it.

Really like the lines and the texture on the rock/clay. Nice.

This is a sweet shot man, love how the textured crags lead your eye into the scene.

I’m not sure what other shots you were comparing this too, but if it was that hard for an image of this quality, your better off than most!

Superb shot man. Grats.

Love this man…the lines and the closeness up front to the rock disappearing off at the top…nice depth.

I dig everything about this shot – color contrast, texture, and leading lines of the cracks. Solid that you got down low too.

LOVE the depth of this image. Great perspective bud.

Love the textures and lines but the perspective is killer – Nice one Heath!

Whoa, what a neat location. Great leading lines and details in the foreground. Cool stuff, Heath.
