These weirdly shaped rock formations remind me of mushrooms and a few other things. I’m guessing they were photographed on a road trip in Iran in the early 1970s.
The original was extremely grungy, and although that is an aesthetic I love, this one needed to be cleaner to appreciate the dramatic shapes and late-afternoon light. I applied some effects to simplify it and then brought out stronger colors.
