Crown of Silence by joerossbach Crown of Silence by joerossbach
A pretty long hike up a broad and wide wash put me in to the famed Towers of Silence just before sunset. I was backpacking with good friend and colleague Ian Plant, and we had just enough time to set up camp and get into the hoodoos with light just beginning to catch the clouds floating by.

I composed this comp and then waited for the decisive moment when the cloud positioned itself over the Tower of Silence before taking the shot. I was lucky enough that it was still catching the most brilliant light when it did.

More to come soon, including a great starscape lit with a distant campfire!
