Sue is the most famous Tyrannosaurus rex as it is the most extensive and best preserved specimen ever found. There was only one major bone missing. It was the hip bone and I found it at my last visit to the Bisti Badlands, New Mexico.
Just kidding! Sue was actually discovered at the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in western South Dakota near the city of Faith. Its skeleton can be seen now at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois. But I have to say that walking around in Bisti, New Mexico will give some interesting parallels.
Interested in a photo tour through the American Southwest? I can help you with it and make you come back with unique shots.

Bisti Badland is a fascinating place, and I bet it is much more to discover, and it is such an unforgiving place if one were to get lost there. When I was here, there were only a couple other people here and just imagine people getting lost, we had a hiking gps, but we were still worry and did hang around much after sunset.
Great shot, the sky is awesome, but you might consider to soften the transition between the sky and the land, it look too much like two separate images between the sky and land.
Suas fotografias são como poentes, jamais me canso de vê-las!
Luz sempre suave e agradável, cores quentes marcantes e uma composição impecavelmente calculada, coisa de alemão...rsrs.
Saudades do velho amigo! Espero que tudo esteja bem contigo e com sua família!
The hoodoo can give those of us with a free thinking mind hours of joy seeing different shapes and forms. At night they can give us nightmares as we see all of the bad things in the wierd and eerie shapes. Photographing these artful designs in the best of light makes them really stand out and something to marvel at mothers natures artistic bent. Sculpted from water, ice, and wind over thousands of years it is mind bending for sure.
