Two Booms Back 2

A long abandoned pump jack stands frozen in stride on the High Plains of Eastern New Mexico. "Two Booms Back" has always been a favorite image.  A wide angle perspective control or tilt shift lens gives this image near perfect focus in all areas.  The strong three dimensional feel in the image is enhanced by shifting the lens up while keeping the camera and sensor level.  In late 2013 the image was added to the fine art collection of British Petroleum in London.  Oil and Gas Photography for Fine Art By Robert D.

Passage To Midnight

A lighting strike during a long exposure captures the continuos motion of a lone pump jack south of Stanton Texas in early June 2013.  This is a very special print engineered for 5000K or day light spot lighting tuned with a dimmer.  In darker prints such as this one I use pure black & white as oposed to sepia or brown toning. This a higher resolution print available in sizes up to 40x80". Photo © copyright by Robert D. Flaherty.

Summer Skye

The wide open high grassland of Chavez County New Mexico is the setting for "Summer Sky".  Each year the summer monsoon season brings continuous thunderstorm activity from July through September to the mile high prairie of East Central New Mexico.  2014 has brought over twenty inches of rain in less than six weeks and helped to alleviate a four year drought.  The area is dominated by shallow and medium depth gas and oil production established in the boom of the early 80's.  Today only a hand full of shallow vertical wells have been drilled here over the past few years.

Sunset At Outland

"Sunset At Outland" features a Champion pump jack or pumping unit on a Devon federal lease in far Western Lea County New Mexico.  A long set of exposures captures the rapid movement of a Jet Max moving through the mid and upper atmosphere. A Jet Max is a core of rapidly moving wind in the upper atmosphere.  The wind at 30,000 feet was blowing out of the west at 220 knots.  A fetch of moisture originating off the coast of Baja Mexico is seen caught up in the wind and being rapidly ejected eastward.   The photograph is a 160 megapixel composite featuring multiple focus points using the newly released Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus Distagon.  The result is an image with near perfect focus in all zones near to far.  The image may be printed 60x120" with no loss of detail and architectural Installations are available up to 30x60 feet.  The image will be the featured artwork for February at Taste@508 a European Cafe and coffee shop located across the street from the Petroleum Club in downtown Midland Texas.
