Vortex by Ian-Plant Vortex by Ian-Plant
Canyon X in Arizona.

So I guess I am a super albino llama now. Thought I was hot shit until I learned that there are things like ninja llamas, rainbow llama, etc. Now I feel insignificant . . . I mean, who doesn't want to be a ninja llama????

Great angle and unusual spiral shape. Wonderfully inventive take on an often stagnant landscape subject! The spiral shape becomes particularly abstract and fascinating if you imagine you are looking down into a vortex as the title suggests instead of out at the sun. :)

Great shot ian! shots like this are usually in one area but i recently found out that there are several areas in AZ to get lighting like this. i'm guessing you hit the "other" area. :-)

this is from Canyon X, which is one of the other areas. I'm not trying to be cute with the title, it is really called Canyon X!

now now, I'm sure the llamas will come to you once they realise you mean well. you could try offering them carrots. or shortbread (I heard the top hat llama loves shortbread)

love the vortex-theme in this shot... the dark violetts really support that surreal association! such a beautiful piece :)

This is amazing, it's so hard to believe that there are sights like this in real life rather than in dreams.
And you're definitely not insignificant. I mean, how many people love you enough to give you that many llamas??
You know how many I have? A whopping 8. That's not an anything llama.
People really do love your work, and so do I.
