Last week I posted some shots from Jujuy, Argentina. Here are a few more shots from northern Argentina - on or around Ruta 40.

#1: Gorge of the Arrows (Quebrada de las Flechas)

The rock formations are said to resemble arrowheads - hence the name.

#2: Parque Nacional Talampaya



#3: Bowling Field, Parque Provincial Ischigualasto

EDIT: For the avoidance of doubt this isn't a real bowling field - that's just the (whimsical) name.

#4: Cemetery

When I saw this scene from the road, I had to stop & get my camera. As soon as I looked through the viewfinder I thought "****! Bloody Ansel Adams!".
I've checked since then & the similarity isn't that great but I still feel cheated.

#5: Cemetery (Mono)

I couldn't make up my mind between colour & mono.

C&C always appreciated. Thanks for looking.

For me #1 and 3 are the clear winners here. The last shot is best in color for me. #2 can be even better if you crop the top away, so the bush gets some mor attention. Maybe worth a try. TFS Tony .

On second thought, the last one is very good in b&w too...

Another very engaging set from a very interesting part of the world.
#1 the Gorge of Arrows geology looks strange with its fragile looking weathered strata.
#2 is a great shot with the tree providing scale. I would like to see a wider shot taking in the view to the top of that rock formation for completeness.
#3 is presumably the moraine of some ice-age glacier with the rocks having been ground into spheres on their journey. A giants' game of pétanque?
Of the last two, my preference is the B&W version, and yes, it is a fitting homage to Ansel Adams IMHO.

Looking forward to more from your trip to South America.

Quite the interesting landscapes I for one prefer the colour version of the last shot. TFS.

Stunning images! Places I have never seen... Thank you!

I like 3 best, just as it is. Lovely.

4 I also like a lot - and though I often go for the mono versions... I like the colour best.

Cheers

Beautifully desolate. And while it's not Hernandez, it's a beautiful image that works best in color.
