Rhyolite is a ghost town in Death Valley with its own outdoor art gallery. A wonderful place to capture interesting images, I could not resist this plaster sculpture of The Last Supper by Albert Szukalski. At roughly three in the afternoon the sun provided perfect backlighting to provide glow and shadows. I used a Sony lens 18-200mm with my Sony DSLR, ISO 100, f/13.0, focal length 45.0mm. Was not out to do any fancy work so all my settings were standard.
