Photograph by Peter Fauland,
Location: Coyote Buttes, Arizona, USA

Date: July 2003
Camera: Canon EOS 1V
Focal Length:20mm
Aperture: f/11
ISO/Film: 100 (Agfa Scala)
Shutter Speed: 1/60 sec
Tripod: Yes
Flash: No

Note: Peter Fauland took this photo of the interesting rock formations in Coyote Buttes, Arizona (wiki link).  Only 20 people per day are allowed to hike here with a hiking permit (permit website). It seems like an easy task to take such a great shot in this area, but all the lines have to balance each other out and flow together to make the composition.  Nice capture!

Tip: Peter captured this photo with an SLR camera, developed the film, then scanned the black and white negative in to produce this image (agfa scala).  It’s pretty neat to see film photography still being used.
