I’ve been to Arizona and some parts are great but I took photos of the petrified forest in 1992 and I don’t know what it was but they just don’t do it justice. I mean, this photo looks like a cross between the pompidou centre and a shopping centre in the desert – whereas you one of the cows sheltering from the weather in Ahillies recently was an excellent monochrome. If these arizona ones were with a red desert soil the blues of the sky and red would benefit from the Lomo treatment to exaggerate the natural colours……i think, as a layman, like!

Because of its large size and wide range of geographic features, nearly every type of climate is represented in the United States. The climate is temperate in most areas, tropical in Hawaii and southern Florida, polar in Alaska.

Francesco – I think I converted it to b/w using the channel mixer, with blue set to a minus figure so the sky would be dark.

Richard – thanks for commenting! The soil was more brown than red, and I was going through a b/w phase when I worked on that photo. I have others so I may try the lomo effect on others!
