Steens Mountain


East Steens Road runs parallel to the northern extent of Steens Mountain of Southeast Oregon. This late-winter, first-light-on-the-mountains image called out to me. The striking dark, sharp, rocky face of the mountain with bright snow caps and avalanche chutes; the delicate light brush in the foreground; the ominous dark skies—all contrasting with one another in more than one dimension—form, texture and tonality.
