POTD: Rapid Oxidation

Rapid Oxidation
Death Valley National Park, California
2017

This is a photo of some burned beams in a building at Furnace Creek in Death Valley. I wasn’t thinking about it when I took the photo, but in going back over the images from the trip on my computer when I got home I was struck by the similarities of this photo to some of those of the eroded landscape I’d taken at the Ubehebe crater earlier the same day. Compare the above to this one for example:

    1. Thanks Kathy, it’s kind of like fractals, the same pattern is seen repeated on any scale. You can actually see that in the actual landscape at Death Valley, the same kind of wrinkled erosion is found on both the large scale and looking ever closer in the same area.
