Perspectives on Nature Photography

More from Nambé Pueblo

with 6 comments



On October 18th at Nambé Pueblo I had a great time photographing the badlands. Today’s first two pictures provide closer looks at hoodoos on opposite sides of the panorama that set the scene two posts back. The patch of yellow at the edge of the second picture was a cottonwood tree, Populus deltoides subsp. wislizenii



And here’s a clear shot of the hoodoo that previously appeared behind trees:

  1. I laughed at the first photo. The trees look like an invading force creeping up the hillside, intent on overtaking the hoodoos. Those few that have made it to the base are going to have a hard time climbing the walls. In the second photo, the hoodoo reminds me of a fasciated plant — especially the fasciated saguaro you saw on a previous visit.

    • Maybe the trees were Birnam Wood coming to Dunsinane Hill.

      The hoodoo in the second photo reminded me of the kind of support that holds up an elevated expressway. Now you’ve let me add that fasciated saguaro to the looks-like repertoire.
