Description

This scene is from the Tascomamal wadi in Libya‚ near Chad. I like the idea of a haven or an enclosed place to rest within the enormity of the desert. The great solidity of the rock formations offered the opportunity to play with the layering of ornament that emphasizes the rock formations‚ offer interesting details and lead the viewers eye across the canvass.
