This dramatic scene was created on a very windy night with a rising full moon. The tall pinnacle is prominently featured. Its substantial form creates the appearance of stability and permanence. Its eroding base and other foreground features add context to this remote location and contrasts with the different textures of the pinnacle. The two pinnacles in deep shadow add depth and help balance the scene. The moon low in the sky adds drama. The blue sky supports the expansiveness of this desert.
