Mineral Oil

Death Valley, CA

Now this is an image that I’ve been sitting on for quite some time as I haven’t really had an outlet for the more abstract images I’ve taken. Well, I’m deciding to change that NOW and get this (as well as others) image out of my process queue.

This is an image taken in Death Valley, circa 2005. Its a closeup of some mineral deposits along one of the canyon walls. Here I have greatly increased the contrast to bring out the highlights and darken the shadows quite a bit. The whole process and result reminded me of an oil slick on water.
