Illuminated by the sun peering through the clouds, Shiprock towers above the flat New Mexico landscape.
The formation is situated on the northeastern edge of the Navajo Volcanic Field. Though the rock was formed some 3000 metres below the surface, erosion over many centuries has exposed Shiprock and subsequent weathering has continued to mould it to the shape we see today.
Shiprock, New Mexico, USA.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, aperture of f/9.0, exposure time of 1/160 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 200mm.
