That spot in the slot (2 photos)

It’s sometimes funny how the photographic eye keeps being attracted to the same thing over and over again. I’ve been to this slot canyon (the south-western one of Middle Fork Palm Wash) quite a number of times now, and each time, I stop more or less at this particular spot, where the canyon makes an elegant curve and the beautiful lines in the soft sandstone just draw you in.

The first (new) photo is actually a vertical panorama stitch from three 24mm images, sporting a whopping 63 megapixels. The second image is a single exposure at 16mm (part of an 18-image gallery in the “Palm Wash Canyons” blog post). The 4×5 aspect ratio somehow just came naturally for both of the images – I only noticed that I picked the same aspect ratio for both photos after I felt satisfied enough with the newer photo.  And I do think they look pretty good together. :-)
