Two Booms Back 2 (2011)

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.
