Rising up from the flat desert floor, Shiprock is an inselberg formation which towers to a height of 482 metres in the state of New Mexico, USA.

More photo information

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.
