Sandstone Layers

For some reason I don't seem to get tired of seeing images from this beautiful location, despite how popular it has become. I still think there is a lot of room for creativity in a location like this one. Each comp is a little different from one person to the next, and the light and textures change depending on the situation. Each person also uses a little different processing techniques, making for unique and beautiful results.


I needed a break from the wet and rainy images from my recent trip to the PNW, so I went back through some archives and reprocessed this image with thoughts of my trip to the southwest next week. Unfortunately I will not have any opportunities to shoot slot canyons on this trip, but the southwest area has always captivated me, regardless of what I am shooting there. I'm going to be spending 4 days in the parks and areas around Moab, mostly backpacking and camping by myself. It should be a refreshing break from the everyday grind...


Happy Sandstone Tuesday everyone! I hope you are having a great week.
