The Wave is a bizarre formation located in the Coyote Buttes of Arizona. Brilliant orange and yellow stripes in the sandstone seem to undulate across the desert like waves of solid stone. For this shot, I wanted to use those incredible lines to lead the viewer through my photograph. I put my tripod down low and composed the shot to that the foreground lines pointed toward the larger formation in the background. The deep blue sky provides a complimentary color for a perfect background.
