The Onset Of Chaos

Northern New Mexico

"The Onset Of Chaos"  A lone pump jack stands idle in the still air moments before the passage of an arctic front drops the temperature by 35 degrees in in fifteen minutes.  This is a 60 megapixel high resolution infrared sepia toned black& white image photographed in early spring on the Northern high plains of Eastern New Mexico.  The image is also available in color. The image here was captured utilizing a new prototype 100 inch tripod and panoramic head from Really Right Stuff.  The height above the ground contributes to the view all the way to the horizon miles away.   Expect to see more photography from this wonderful wide open landscape during the Summer of 2014.  Oil & Gas Photography for fine art by Robert D.
