A Sudden Stop

One more image that fits into the category of the previous post. Compositionally I found the juxtaposition interesting. A little campy perhaps but still worth a sheet of film. I still felt torn cause the rock in the foreground was almost certainly moved to that spot by someone. (not me) If on the slight chance people see this image and like it, would they be more inclined to move other rocks just for the sake of creating a composition to photograph? It would be the death of this place. It resonates with the curse of conservational minded landscape photographers. You take a beautiful photograph of a place to promote the need of protecting it. People see the photograph and then swarm the location and destroy in essence what made the place worth protecting in the first place. Dilemma indeed.
