After setting-up camp on my first day, I spent a lot of time enjoying the wide open vistas before ending that day with photography in the, “ghost town” of Turlingua. The morning of this second day was spent relaxing and looking around without much travel. By mid-day I was ready to resume a search that had failed in 2010: The search for the Red Buffalo rock art.
While clues regarding the whereabouts of the Red Buffalo rock art might suggest it is hidden, the fact of the matter is it’s in plain sight. I thus spent a couple of hours walking beyond where “X” marked the spot, so to speak. Not that I minded. I knew I was close to success and was enjoying every foot of new scenery.
At any rate, I captured two images at the close of this day. One of those was this view looking toward the southwest and the Chisos Mountain Basin (wherein I had set-up camp).
The original image is a Tagged Image Format File (TIFF) with a file data size of 35 megabytes (MB).
For display on this web site the TIFF was duplicated and the duplicate re-formatted as a Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPG/JPEG) image with a file data size of 2.11 MB. To approximate detail visible at the time of capture the image was sharpened as necessary and resampled via the Photoshop Bicubic Sharpen algorithm. The re-sampling increases the image resolution from 300 Dots Per Square Inch (DPI) to 360 DPI.
Unless otherwise noted the image was corrected to offset color shift and balance. This restores black (shadows), white (highlights) and neutral gray (neutral mid-tones).
• An unnumbered image is the only one of the subject matter.
• A number corresponds to the sequential order in a subject-matter-related sequence.
• The letter “B” indicates color correction to approximate what was visible when the image was captured.
• The letter “C” indicates enhancement beyond an approximation of what was visible at the time of capture.
