Photographer's Note

This was taken just outside (to the north) of the Sonoran desert, which gets an annual rainfall of less than 8 in. (16 cm) a year. It was taken from the car at 1/1000, which goes to show what amazing things a camera can do with enough light!

These hills are the remains of volcanic activity that happened only hundreds of years ago. Wind and rain have eroded the piles into what you see here. Amazingly, people live and thrive here. Various native american groups call this place home: the Pima and Apache in particular. Near here was a very large settlement to which many different tribes came: the volcano and a sudden lack of rainfall put a stop to that, though ruins still exist. I didn't get to go to the ruins, but that just gives me an excuse to go back, right?

PP: I converted to b/w using the channel mixer, with the red channel being most prominent and the blue channel being in the negative numbers. Cropped, sized and sharpened.
