Storm Canyon 10,000 Years of Habitation In Paradise
Long history and sheer beauty give this place a special feeling. One can imagine the migrations of the indian tribes up for the summer and down onto the desert floor for winter. They thrived in this area. Now its reservations and casino resorts for how the tribes make do. Modernity came at a cost. You can literally see the way down. That green strip down the middle is also where the mules once brought the mail up.
But please let me share the scene with you. It was interesting enough I offer 3 takes on the shot.
Where was i exactly? Charles is kind enough to auto strip metadata from images to protect our privacy. So Lightroom has this map feature that is pretty accurate with the in camera GPS. This way I can share the data on a map for anyone who might want to visit these interesting places.
This last image was shot with my telephoto lens but i cropped way the heck in for this image. Thats less than 25% of the original image.
