Bisti Badlands by BenDiAnna Bisti Badlands by BenDiAnna
Taken in the Bisti Wilderness, New Mexico at sunset.
36.277268,-108.2605

*EDIT* 12-13-2011- I decided to re-edit this photo from scratch as there were many errors in the last one.

This was such a beautiful and fascinating spot we found in New Mexico. The Bisti Badlands is a "scenic and colorful expanse of undulating mounds and unusual eroded rocks" located along highway 371 in quite literally the middle of nowhere. It's so far from anywhere that the silence is almost absolute and a little eerie.
If you ever have a chance to check it out I strongly suggest it.

If I could, i'll go there. Although the rocks needs a bit contrast, the overall is very nice, and soft looking. Well done!^^

Oh my gosh. I am so jealous. It looks like someplace I could wander through in my own blissful world for days. This shot is great. The striations in the rock, the cloud activity and lighting are amazing. I can hear the centuries of water flowing through here eroding the earth and creating this awe inspiring landscape. Well done.

Thank you very much for the compliments sir! :)
I bet you would have a terrific time at this place, the geology there is odd, unique, and beautifully one-of-a-kind. I probably only got to see 1% of the area too.
