Pastel Slot

Almost an abstract.

 

A miniature pastel sandstone slot canyon,

in Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada.

 

Note the vertical "discontinuity" on the near right sandstone. The horizontal sedimentary lines are shifted. (I thought at first my scanner had messed up).The blocks moved, probably long before the water (and stones) carved this.

 

The colors are "natural". I did remove a magenta/blue cast caused by velvia 50 exposed under low light conditions even with an 81A warming filter, enhanced midtone contrast to better show the sedimentary lines, and desaturated the jpeg even more one last time before submitting.
