First of all I would like to apologize to those who favorited my earlier shot of Palouse. I decided to delete that because the more I stared at it the more homogenous it made me feel. Having seen a million shots just like the one I posted I began to wonder if I was suffering from a case of creating content rather than expressing myself through art. So I decided to focus my effort on creating a shot that was unique and hopefully a new perspective of albeit an often photographed place. As I was going through my archives I came across this shot of hikers on mesquite dunes at DV. The light, patterns and textures I felt all added up to an image more interesting than my earlier Palouse shot. Not sure if you feel the same way, but the artist in me can definitely sleep better now.
