2021—Shapes and Patterns

The views of Hoodoos in Bruce Canyon National Park are mesmerizing with the shapes and patterns they create reminiscent of just about anything one’s imagination can concoct. The time of day makes a difference in how the light plays on the rocks and creates shadows. The light is harsher later in the day when I took this photograph about 6PM at Bryce Point so instead of shooting it in color, I opted for my new favorite monochrome setting, Graphite, #18 on a Nikon Z body. In Graphite, the formations remind me of a forest of pine trees, it never would have given me that impression if I’d taken it in color.
