Description

This photograph is taken at the edge of a cliff showing a landscape with outcroppings on the other side of a valley. The sun is out, making the distant upper part of the photograph all white. The rock formations end in the distance, and a tree line is seen before the plateau becomes white. A draw separates where the photographer is standing, and the distant shrubs and dark rocks are on the hill below. The texture of the distant formations seems to be coarse grained and consists of large, steep, eroded slopes coming down and out, breaking into three new levels the texture is smooth to show the vertically eroded material along the hillside. On the bottom left side of the photograph, sparse vegetation in the form of shrub brush is seen. A dark, iron-rich layer of material has formed on the top of an outcropping.
