    Organ Mountains in New Mexico — Bob Wick

    About the photo: My favorite type of image is the “grand landscape” that captures the essence of a vista so that the viewer feels they can walk into the image.  To trick the viewer into thinking the 2 dimensional photo is actually 3-D, it’s important to include foreground, middleground and background features. Here the granite boulders provide a strong foreground leading through the yucca covered middleground footslope to the jagged background of the Organ Mtns.

    Tip: Don’t make your foreground element more than 1/3 the overall height of the image or it will block viewers eyes from moving into the rest of the photo. The pink tone on the clouds, peaks and rocks is from front lighting in the predawn light about 10 minutes before sunrise.

    About the area: The Organ Mountains are located a stone’s throw from Las Cruces New Mexico. Photo locations are great on both the east and west side of the range and all weather roads provide passenger car access. Start your visit at the Dripping Springs Visitor Center.

    Camera settings: Focal length 24 mm, shutter speed 2.5 seconds, aperture f 18, ISO 100

      I miss seeing these on a daily basis. Camping in Aguirre Springs on the back slope was always a great time.
