Its a similar place to Death Valley with all purple brown colors of mountains as I read at Ansel Adams Death Valley pictures. Ansel prints sometimes looks more pastel but You know him , it looks like You are there.
I think industry killed there and its not a shame to a country where animal rights are more important than human rights. Its a place like chernobyl or radiation polluted deserts or oceans.
But USA is not alone , Russia , India , Chine did the same.
ı think pictures are discusting and not a place for photography if you have not a mixed mind.
