Sunset over a sliding rock

you can find these sliding rocks on the death valley's RaceTrack Playa, a dry lake where these huge stones move !!, leaving a trace behind them.
the most relevant theory explaining this movements involves heavy rain, transforming the playa in a mud pool, and strong winds.

K10D, Sigma 17-70, circular polarizer

Tres monolythique a la Kubrick. J'ai l'impression que je me fais souvent la remarque quant a tes photos. Inspiration consciente ou inconsciente?

J'aurai bien vu la photo prise depuis un peu plus bas mais celle là reste très bien faite.

Merci :)
J'ai essayer une prise de vue plus basse (je suis rester un bon moment sur place :p), mais le resultat ne m'a pas vraiment emballe: le "4" est difficilement visible et la texture du sol ne resort pas aussi bien.
