Cracked earth

20120927-101636.jpg I have a shot in a later post that shows silt fences holding back mud.  This is an example of what they hold back.  The soil here, if I can call it that, is more like clay.  It flows around and then hardens into a cement-like substance.  In the bright strong Carolina sun, it can crack like this.  The cracks are actually quite deep and make wonderful patterns, along with the sparse grass which manages to survive.   The color of the “dirt” is not interesting enough to work with, and I usually prefer B&W anyway.  The only problem was figuring out where to crop, because I love all the lines and twists and holes.  Finally just said “this is it” and went with it.
