The thing I like the most about photographing in the southwest USA is the limitless opportunities not only for the grand scenic landscapes, but all the smaller abstract scenes that are inherent in them.
After you’ve seen places like Zion National Park, or the Valley of Fire, some miscellaneous rock formation in the middle of nowhere, like this one at Whitney Pocket, Nevada, may seem less impressive at first.
But when you look closer, the details equal what you find in the more iconic locations.
It’s wonderful to be able to take a stroll from the RV in any direction you choose, explore a nearby rock formation, and come away with such interesting abstract photos. Here are a couple more from the area near our campsite.
The sheer diversity of the landscape in the southwest is overwhelming. Especially when I think of how much of it I have yet to see.

The John Day Park in Oregon would present many opportunities for abstract photos, where the soil and rocks can be bands of red and other colours. have you been theres? Check it out
A magical and beautiful landscape with many nice surprises. Amazing photos!

Amazing how sometimes the simplest things and lines of nature can be transformed in art with a great photographer and a camera.
