Old Car in a Slot Canyon, Escalante-Grand Staircase Ntl. Mon.

This kinda reminded of Arron Ralston who lost his arm to a boulder in a Bluejohn Canyon out in the remote part of Canyonlands. This right here is a car that been lodged down in this slot canyon since probably the late fifties or sixties… who knows, maybe a massive flash flood wedged it down into there over 30 years ago. The car is now apart of the erosion process, so-to-be-an-artifact!

Landscape Arch Near Moab Utah

Everyone should get out at least once in their lifetime to see this grand arch before it collapses and is gone forever. It still looks like a miracle to me, the fact that it’s still standing. There is beauty in this world. Even though it’s all scientifically explorable, the heart of spirit still rules these wild places where wind still talks and the raven planes the edges of Navajo sandstone in search of his next find.

Beaver Falls – Havasupai Indian Reservation

After getting stuck on a ledge and being taught a lesson by the canyon, I took this picture above Beaver Falls! It’s a long story but let’s just put it this way; I’ve been to Havasupai in Grand Canyon many times. It’s rugged beauty gets more rough as you head deeper and deeper into the side canyon before it empties into the Rio Colorado. The blue water is colored by a mineral known as Travertine which redeposits itself and forms these waters falls from driftwood dams and other debris. I just got back from this trip last night and it was one of the more memorable trips and visits amongst the Supai!

Barrier Style Pictographs – Hanksville Region, Utah

These pictographs are unknown to the general public and it is my policy not to disclose location information of these sacred and sensitive sites. I feel it is important to share the beauty though, so people can see what some of these sites look like. Please do not ask me for location information because I will not tell you. These pictographs are believed to be around 5,000-8,000 years old and were left by the Western Archaic hunters & gatherers whom predate ancient Puebloan (Anasazi) peoples.

Juniper Claws – Monument Valley Tribal Park

I’m thinking I should steering more towards color? I’ve always kinda seen color as being taboo and tried to desaturate my images with all worries surrounding color balance and using proper color space is always a hassle but I’m missing the days of positive slide film and Velvia. Digital is so sweet and I’m ready to take a visit to yesteryear. This is a dead juniper in Monument Valley Tribal Park on the Navajo Reservation near the Four Corners area. It’s starkly beautiful country and it’s probably my favorite place to photograph in the Desert Southwest.
