Gumdrop Ridge by Pcoskun

Gumdrop Ridge- This is an image I photographed in south coyote buttes in Northern Arizona. It’s a spectacular place, one of my favorites as soon as I stepped foot onto the landscape here. There are so many interesting rock formations and patterns to admire here. I had seen images of this little rock commonly referred to as the “Gumdrop”. The split tones in the rock make for an excellent photo of itself, but when you look at the ridge behind it, you notice that the pattern continues up the slope. It makes you feel like you are in the game Candyland, and that each tile of rock is a space on the board. This was taken after sunset as the last remaining light was glowing on the rocks. The deep blues of twilight contrasted beautifully with the multicolored sandstone formations.
