Sunken City: Streetscape to Landscape

My photograph titled "Sunken City" draws more traffic to this site than any other. I took this from the other end to be a companion to it.

The original "Sunken City" photo was taken from the rim of the landslide. Look for the place where the pavement projects slightly over the lip in this photo. The pavement in foreground of this photo is the large slab that's visible below the right-most hoodoo on the left-hand side of the older image. Once that makes sense, you can see both the full extent of the area and how much a photographer can change the appearance of a place by making different choices.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
