Echo Amphitheater New Mexico

197/366: Echo Amphitheater – The Fallen

I’ve titled this photograph ‘The Fallen’ – This fallen tree seems to have been at Echo Amphitheater in New Mexico for a long while.  Rotted and falling apart slowly in the heat and wind – the tree adds a point of grounding for the viewer and then brings the viewers eye right into the center of the Echo Amphitheater.  The sharpness, crispness and despair of the tree had me captivated more then the actual amphitheater.

This was one of our stops on our road trip to Colorado.  This photo was taken with Lee Filters Circular Polarizer and Big Stopper for an exposure of 25 seconds at f/8, ISO 100 – 14mm.
