Remnant At Square Lake Vertical (2018)

Lea County New Mexico

Remnant At Square Lake Vertical was photographed in the Permian Basin near the sand hills of Square Lake in Northwestern Lea County New Mexico. The location is an old stripper well originally drilled around 1980. The Pump Jack was photographed at a close upward angle using a tilt shift or perspective control lens. The use of this lens renders perfect focus thought the image. The lens also provides a strong three dimensional feel when used in this way.
