Alien Mushroom (Infrared).  The Alien Throne, in the badlands of northwestern New Mexico, is getting to be pretty well known (and frequently photographed).  But it has a lot of interesting neighbors, including this one, who also like to pose for portraits.  As far as I know, nobody has yet ascertained what planet these otherworldly formations were imported from – though I’m not sure that really matters.<br />

Tech info: Nikon D800E camera (modified for full spectrum response, with 550nm IR filter on lens), Nikon 28-300mm lens at 28mm, 1/320 sec. at f/22, ISO 500<br />
