POTD: Edge to Edge

Edge to Edge
Cedar Mesa, Utah

I took this photo because I liked the way the rock on the cliff edge in the center of the image was surrounded by shadow. But I also find it interesting that in this black and white view the foreground cliff edge seems, at first glance,  to blend almost seamlessly into the background, even though that background is the much larger scale far cliff edge across the separating canyon. The actual distance is disguised by the fact that the close-up texture of the foreground rocks just happens to mimic the larger scale texture of the cliff face across the way, sort of a strange Mandlebrot set effect in a way.
