Steins Pillar near Prineville, Oregon


This is Steins Pillar near Prineville, Oregon. Named after the explorer Enoch Steen (pronounced 'stein'). The landmark was misspelled for so many years that the incorrect spelling actually became the official name. It surprises me how similar it is to Monkey Face at Smith Rock State Park. I used HDR technique for this image. We had arrived there fairly late in the day with the sun almost directly above and to the west of the pillar. I opted to take about a dozen exposures and combine them into one so that I may retain detail in the image.
