Fire Canyon

Fire Canyon, Valley of Fire, Nevada Part reality, part fantastical landscape, this shot happened accidentally during a trip through Nevada. Looking beyond the second range in the far distance is another surreal topography: Las Vegas. For me, the lights, colors, and architecture of Fire Canyon are much more compelling.

Snow Canyon, Utah

Snow Canyon State Park, Utah And so, you're walking along, camera in hand, looking for that perfect vista, and you happen upon this thing. Is it an entrance to a massive cave?

It's also about the morning sky, a color that I'd never seen before. Iron blue? I can't describe it. It's January in the Mojave, the best time to visit Joshua Tree National [...]
