Two years ago Pete gave me his “old” camera (it only makes sense that I also kept his lens). I took this photo on my second try to shoot with a real camera. Thank you Pete for being such a great and patient teacher. Without you I wouldn´t know how to use a camera (hmm, I still don´t know that, but don´t tell anyone).Thank you for everything!
And because it´s your birthday, I promise to not bake a cake.
#mypubliclandsroadtrip kicks off the weekend at the Ah-shi-sle-pah Wilderness Study Area in northwestern New Mexico.
Ah-shi-sle-pah is a badland area of rolling water-carved clay hills. The area is rich in fossils and has little vegetation to conceal geological formations. The thin vegetation includes sagebrush, piñon-juniper, Great Basin scrubland, and grassland. It is a landscape of sandstone cap rocks and scenic olive-colored hills. Water in this area is scarce and there are no trails; however, the area is scenic and contains soft colors rarely seen elsewhere.
Add this to your bucketlist for beauty and solitude!
