5 Artist Proof / 150 Limited Edition
I just can't get enough of these amazing slender pinnacles. They speak volumes of the passage of time and are among my favorite illustrations of the awesome beauty of the Southwest. I launched the drone from just outside of the Tribal Park and captured this frame with four sequential shots (5 bracketed shots each for a total of 20 images) to compose a vibrant HDR edit from an unconventional perspective. I positioned the drone with the top of the spire to the right, extending just above the horizon as my primary focus, and balanced the frame with further formations in shadow. I love the flow from the central pinnacle back to the left along the blade, leading to the slim lower ridge that sweeps back to the right, and up to the base of my foreground pinnacle.
