Yesterday, I went back to Ghost Ranch and hiked the 3 miles up to the top of the mesa from which the “chimneys” are slowly eroding.  (Click on any image to enlarge)

Colors and Textures: Natural and Unnatural

I’m fascinated by the color, shape and texture of things that are literally at my feet and all around me every day.  I’m also struck by the fact that the natural world creates, as it were, these tableaux effortlessly and flawlessly and they always surpass in beauty the best art work humans are capable of  . . . although some artists do come close.   All images © Max Vollmer  (Click on any image to enlarge)
