Exposed rock formations, canyons, foothills and mountains populate these photographs. The harsh conditions leave much of this landscape undeveloped. The impact of humans, industry and agriculture can however, still be found.

In the dry brush and grasslands of Wyoming, fences and power lines are just visible. Faintly appearing in the distance. Cutting the land in two. Dividing and separating. Given the vastness of these landscapes, to decide where to position a fence feels like an absurd gesture.

In areas where agriculture is possible, the rivers have been moved and reshaped by man. Forming emerald necklaces of lush green in otherwise inhospitable conditions.

Elsewhere quarries carve deep into the earth. The remnants of abandoned mines pockmark the land. Mining has stripped away the soil. Revealing plunging cliffs and layers of rock and massive holes that bore deep beneath the surface of the earth.

 

America: Elevations Flaming Gorge, Wyoming

The further down you travel in these quarries, canyons and reservoirs, the further back in time you travel. Stretching from before the dinosaurs to now, each layer another millenia. All of this history comes together to create the landscape we see in these photographs by Lincoln Schatz. 

Mountains are continuously reshaped by weather and time. Providing fertile growing conditions in their valleys in early spring.
