Sunrise, and the San Rafael “River”

On a scale of pure beauty ranging from 1 to 10, the San Rafael Swell goes to 11. Late spring while everything was green, gorgeous and calm, I captured this little corner of the Swell just as the morning sun was beginning to cascade over the red rocks and throughout the valley. The San Rafael “River” (barely, but a formidable landscape architect nonetheless) was relaxed at that moment. There’s not a lot of magic or skill required when taking pics like these in the wild regions of Utah; just grab your camera and start shooting, Utah does the rest.
