Desert Rivers

What looks to me like fossils or even trees against a snowy backdrop are actually aerial shots of dried up rivers in California and Mexico.  The photographer, Adriana Franco*, submitted them to National Geographic's online community My Shot in December and I'm sure it's pretty clear why they were chosen as some of the best photos of the month.

So cool, right?  What do you think they look like at first glance?

Also, a few years ago this photo of mine was selected by My Shot and featured on the National Geographic website.  It was the first time that my work had been recognized in the photography community.   I still can't believe it.  Surreal.
