Picture StoryShiprock is an ancient volcanic plug rising about 1500 feet above the desert in the northwest corner of New Mexico in the United States. It has another feature that cements it on my all time favorite list of landscape photographic subjects. There are two main “wings” that extend several miles out from the peak, one to the south and another to the west. These are tall thin black dikes of extruded igneous rock and why the Navajo name for shiprock means “The Rock with Wings”.
