Richard Colman (Rick) travels the Southwestern US in search of native american petroglyphs, pictographs, ruins and other signs of habitation.  Many of these sites are well-known and can be visited. Others are private and their locations are withheld to protect them from damage.

Rock Art by night and day

  • Sears Point at Sunrise, southwest Arizona

    Skies had been forecast to be overcast but clearing during the evening. We waited patiently, dozed off a little, waiting for the promised clearing that never seemd to come. Finally, a miracle of sorts, and the skies cleared at 3:30 AM. We dashed up the side of the mountain and took 24 sky exposures and 6 foreground shots, 20 seconds wide open at ISO 1600 on a Sony A7S. Images were stacked to reduce noise and hand composited for focus stacking.
