The Hopi Clown

Feel free to comment below

Rock spires or hoodoos at they are better known have long held a fascination for me. This rock, which resembles a Pueblo Hopi clown is perhaps the least visited in the American Southwest.  Indian Reservation roads, particularly obscure rarely travelled ones are not featured on paper maps so my approach was planned on Google Earth. I use GE extensively in my planning, through the program it’s possible to create a route anywhere on the planet and load it onto a handheld GPS, without doing this I’d never have found the rock. It took three attempts to get here, on one attempt the roads were impassible, myself and a friend got caught up in this flash flood.

My sole intention was to shoot a subject in the opposite direction but when the sun rose I glanced over my   shoulder and saw the light was really nice.   I was able to shoot these hoodoos without moving my tripod, I literally turned the camera 180º and fired the shutter.
