I was out taking photographs of the Little Painted Desert along Arizona 87 just north of I-40. The light wasn’t the greatest, so I began to look for some scenes where the light would work better.
As I drove down AZ87, I saw these buttes, the first is called Castle Butte, and the near-dusk light lit up the red rock and was just beautiful. So I pulled over and captured this shot.
I used a Canon 5D Mark II with my Tamron SP 24-70mm lens, shot at 42mm at 1/80 sec at f/16 and ISO 100.
I hope you enjoy the photograph as much as I enjoyed taking it!
