Hoodoo Magic (by D Breezy - davidthompsonphotography.com)
don’t know where to begin with this adventure. It was an adventure indeed. This journey took us to unfamiliar lands of the Four Corners region of New Mexico. The area is called the Bisti/De Na Sin Wilderness. The area is spread out for miles. There are no trails or distinctive markings for these areas. The surrounding the area is high desert, completely flat with grassy plains, one could see for miles, unless you journey out to find these other worldly landscapes.
Once you have found this bizarre landscape, it is something that you have NEVER seen before. The landscape will leave you speechless, in awe, trying to find words to describe what you are seeing. The array of colors vary from oranges, reds, magenta, yellow, whites, greys, purples, blacks, olive greens and other colors I can’t describe. The hoodoos vary in size from less than twelve inches to a towering forty plus feet in height. It is one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever photographed. The possibilities are endless.
On this particular evening there was a break in the cloud cover, with a huge gap on the horizon. There were still plenty of clouds hanging in the area. Once the sun broke through the clouds, the light illuminated the hoodoos with a light that can’t be explained. The light was literally golden at one point. One would have to see this light with their own eyes. The colors of the hoodoos lit up and became saturated beyond belief. It was like the hoodoos came to life. The landscape completely changed, the clouds to the north west and north east began to fill with color/light. I began to quickly set up. All of a sudden, the sky starts to form intense virga! As I’ve said before, capturing virga is a rare occurrence. Watching the clouds dance, while mother nature creates its magic was one of the most spectacular scenes I have ever witnessed. It was refreshing seeing a totally different and new landscape. I have a new favorite location. Until the next time.
