Mesa Arch Sunrise
Sunrise on Thanksgiving morning at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, UT. Visiting National Parks on major holidays is a way to virtually have the park to yourself. This is one of my favorite photos.
Delicate Arch at Night
My first attempt at painting with light at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Moab, UT. We were there shoot the setting sun on the Arch but several of us hiked below the arch and worked with others remaining above to capture this image. What a fun time!
Canyonlands Needles District
I went on my own to explore the Needles area of Canyonlands National Park. The rock colors and formations were amazing with the La Sal Mountains serving as a fitting backdrop - what a glorious day of hiking and photography.
Early morning sunrise reflecting off the South Windows Arch. I had such a fun time exploring Arches National Park. It had a mystical feel for me.
The Canyonlands Needles District is such an amazing place to hike in, around and through. The colorful sandstone spires seem to have their own personality. It was an awe-inspiring day.
The variety of sandstone formations in such a concentrated area were incredible. I found myself stopping many times to just look and wonder how these had been formed and enjoying the beauty of the moment.
Dead Horse Point Sunrise
Watching the sun rise and paint the beauty of Dead Horse Point was a tremendous experience. The colors kept changing as the sun got higher. You just have to love and appreciate the gifts we have been given.
Dead Horse Point Panorama
I put together a panorama of the sunrise over Dead Horse Point.
The setting sun behind me as I got this shot of Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. The La Sal Mountains are off in the distance. It was an interesting hike over sliprock to get to this location and one I have done a couple of times - worth the trip!
Panorama from Dead Horse Point
The view in almost every direction from Dead Horse Point were so unique and powerful. One shot cannot begin to capture the magnificence here.

What a geological showcase! This is part of the Islands in the Sky District.
A Canyonlands Panorama with the La Sal Mountains behind. What an amazing place!
North & South Windows Arches
Arches National Park such a unique, wonderful and mystical experience. The variety of rock formations and arches is unlike anything else.
I climbed into midst of the Double Arches and sat for quite a long time. What a unique experience! Arches National Park is a place that needs more than one visit to explore and get to know - it is something you will never forget!
