‘Big Yucca on Highway 90 in West Texas,’ black and white landscape photograph by Keith Dotson
This week’s featured photo features this towering yucca, easily standing 20 feet tall over the desert of West Texas. The photograph was made in 2020, as part of a huge road trip to the Lone Star State.
While I grew up in Texas and lived there more than half of my life, West Texas was like a distant and foreign land to me. I’d never even been there until I was well into adulthood.
It’s a region beautiful in its sheer magnitude. The deserts are broad. Epic mountains rise abruptly from vast basins. It’s a land that demands respect.
High-resolution photographs befitting a vast landscape
My photographs of West Texas were created to celebrate the vastness of the landscape. I made high-resolution images designed to print at extremely large sizes, in a manner befitting the grand scale of the countryside. While modern cities hum with vitality in other parts of the state, the west remains silent – unbelievably silent – but if you listen closely, you may hear the sound of a space rocket being launched from the desert north of Van Horn.
Very large fine art prints available
Available as a photographic art print on museum-quality fine art paper, this image can be purchased in sizes up to 40 x 60 inches or even larger, befitting the monumental quality of this vast and epic landscape.
