ABSTRACTS IN THE VALLEY OF FIRE

November 26, 2019  •  1 Comment

The Valley of Fire state park lies next to the small town of Overton about 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada.  To say it is a gem for landscape photography is an understatement; however, the abstract possibilities are what really drew me in during my time there.  Bright red Aztec sandstone among gray and tan limestone produce layers of colors that are fantastic subjects for abstract photography.  Below is just a small sample of the images I found while at the Valley of Fire.

Lines and color

The lines, patterns and textures in the rock formation provided an excellent opportunity to work on abstract images.  While most photographers will definitely want to photograph the vast landscape remember not to ignore the color and texture of the rocks as you hike through canyons and around the park.  Once you have captured a great abstract all that is left to do is print it and hang it! 2019-Abstract-Images-couch-photo2019-Abstract-Images-couch-photo For more of my images from this workshop click here.  For a list of Jennifer King Photography workshops where I am instructing please click on the WORKSHOPS menu at the top of the page.  If interested in other workshops by Jennifer King Photography just click here to check out all the wonderful destinations listed for 2020 and 2021.
