Seeing the blue tone in the shadows, I was somehow reminded of Zane Grey's "Riders of the Purple Sage".
that little tint is my editing...just adding a little more to the shadows. I am not familiar with that reference, will have to go look it up.

I like it very much. I would have cropped that black side on the left. When I was there a yr ago, I was also more interesting in the sand patterns. It was with family so not much time shooting. Need to start going there every so often like some of my coworkers do.
In reality, I didn't see it when I shot it, I should have moved to not include that...and I looked at cropping it, but for me it brought that scrub too close to the left edge and ruined the lines coming from the bottom left corne...I also thought about cloning it out, but decided to leave it. Should have noticed it in the field...I typically am looking at the edges and corners but on this one in the field I paid too much attention to the top of the original frame...only to crop it out entirely in post. That left that spot there...oh well.
