Bisti Badlands, New Mexico

had to put on the thinking cap today, trying to work out logistical issues for a late winter trip to the US Southwest...mine is a Basque boneta, known in France as a beret

note that the fact this remote, sparsely visited area is only 35 miles from the Three Rivers Brewery in Farmington is completely irrelevant...well largely irrelevant...OK...OK...somewhat irrelevant

Nikon D7000

A lot of the hoodoos, including this one, have very definite personalities. Great framing and capture of this one. ~BV~

Before I saw the name I thought of an artist with a beret. Love this. V

It really does look like a beret.

So many interesting rock formations due to erosion and this is no exception. Great lighting on one of nature's sculptures. VV

LOL ! This is really a Basque with a beret ! Stunning... V.
Even today the Basque 's origin is not really clearly stated. Their language has nothing to share with the other European languages... One says they have a lot of common with the Mayas. But your image casts a new light to the subject :)

An interesting Hoodoo.

Always important to shoot near good watering holes.

This stone beret looks awesome and just thinking about proximity of that brewery is so enticing! V

a beautiful rock formation, really it looks like a head with a "beret"! V
Charlene Ambrose27-Nov-2018 05:22
Well it does look like a beret, and I think it's tilted in the direction of a brewery, but I could be wrong. I'm sure you will have to check it out......a compelling reason to venture south.

Excellent find!! V!

Fascinating - looks like massive old bones stacked together with a loaf of bread on top! No wonder you're dreaming of faraway places now the rains have begun in earnest.

I have seen other images taken in Bisti Badlands it certainly is a fascinating area, this is an excellent capture of one of the formations. V

A very interesting geological formation, captured perfectly!

What a cool looking rock formation. It's very important to make sure there is a good place for refreshments when exploring the badlands. Make the plans and buy the tickets!
Helen Betts26-Nov-2018 23:32
Great capture of this interesting rock formation. Maybe it's really pretty relevant ;-).
PauloCGama26-Nov-2018 22:56
I cant see a face here althoug I do see a wonderful formation wonderfully captured vv
Allan Jay26-Nov-2018 21:54
A very distinctive capture!
Don Mottershead26-Nov-2018 21:43
Like Jose I see a face under that hat, except the face I see is more on the homely side of the spectrum. Nicely composed image.
Jim Coffman26-Nov-2018 21:38
What a fantastic rock formation! Very well captured, David!
Jola Dziubinska26-Nov-2018 21:02
Fantastic shape. Beret in Poland as well :)
Colin Storey26-Nov-2018 20:58
