    Default The Barrier

    One of the many barriers to travel that both the early settlers and even modern travelers face in this country. There are many little green parks scattered through the badlands as portrayed here, though all lack a natural source of water except for scarce rainfall and many are completely surrounded by barrier Badlands and not readily accessible to travelers. Somehow grand and very, very attractive view in my estimation.



    Camera: E-3
    Lens: DZ 14-35mm at 22mm
    Shutter speed: 1/500
    Aperture: f5
    Shooting mode: P
    Metering mode: ESP
    ISO: 100
    WB: Auto
    Good shooting,

    Neither would I. The Badlands extend for many miles.

    Thank you. I was going to use the word oasis but steered away at the very last minute because the area doesn't have any ground level water source and I didn't want to mislead. I really don't think about dynamic range when using the E-3 as I had to with the E-510. I just shoot with ESP metering and the camera seems to position the images nicely withing its capability parameters.
    Good shooting,

    Very beautiful, but one can well imagine the sinking feeling in the pit of the stomachs of some of those early migrants.

    I very much enjoy the striation and erosion patterns in the rock as well as the wonderful colors in that area. It's hard for me to reconcile that with the obstacle this area posed to travelers, though I realize the difficulties intellectually.

    EB is interesting how the layers of rock formation have been edged by the waters of the times. Cheers Pete

    Interesting that you mentioned water. There was a large body of water in this area back when dinosaurs thrived.
