Is everyone else as intrigued by volcanoes as I am? America’s desert Southwest was largely sculpted by volcanic action, and nowhere is that more evident than in the great ancient lava fields of New Mexico. From the ground these “malpaís” areas are largely impassable and visually incomprehensible, but from the air it takes little imagination to picture the crackling, bubbling torrents of volcanic lava that formed these great jagged badlands.
I photographed “Malpaís Lava Field” en route from Flagstaff to El Paso. (Read about the journey in my Flying Carpet column, “New Friends,” first published in AOPA Flight Training magazine, January, 2008.)
“Malpaís Lava Field” is debuting in Limited Edition sizes of 27″x40″ and “24”x36″, and Open Editions of 16″x24″ and 10″x14″. Prices range from $175 for an unmounted 10″x14″ print, to $1500 for a museum-mounted 27″x40″, with numerous options in between. Click here for detailed pricing and ordering information.
Like all my Views from the Flying Carpet, this photograph was collaboratively tuned for print with Master Photographic Printer Richard Jackson, who prints for the world’s finest photographers. Each individual print is meticulously crafted, matted and/or framed, and packaged for shipping under Mr. Jackson’s supervision.
