Two perspectives of Oatman, Az from afar.
These were taken on two different days and from two different vantage points. It’s amazing to me how two photographs of the same landscape can create significantly inconsistent images. The first image appeals to me because of the colors that reflect into the mountain from the sunset occuring across from it. I love how huge the pointed mountain seems in the second photograph and the way the foreground makes you feel so very close to it. I would have really liked to see the same coloring of the first shot in the second, yet mother nature didn’t allow it.
This is part of the reason I am so intrigued with photography. It is often all about timing. In life and photography every moment stands alone. We cannot duplicate a scene or moment once it has passed.
