Coyote Buttes 6

Posted by

In June, I spent some time wondering around the Desert Southwest US. I have posted a number of photos from those travels here already. I have finally begun to tackle what I shot at Coyote Buttes, also known as The Wave. This site is administered by The Bureau of Land Management of the US government. They allow only 20 people a day to enter the area. It was a hot day and a challenging hike, on the day I was lucky enough to have a permit.

According to someone quoted in the Wikipedia article, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wave,_Arizona, one cannot consider oneself a landscape photographer until one has photographed the wave. I can say that I am now one step closer to becoming a landscape photographer.

At some point in this series I will include some shots of the wave itself, but the whole place is quite stunning.
