No… This is not in Florida.


I've been thinking back to one year ago. It was one year ago today that I took this hike down to one of the most amazing vistas I have ever seen. Very few places have ever moved me like this. This is the very difficult to find, False Kiva, in Canyonlands National Park.


The power and tranquility of this place was like nowhere else I had ever visited. I think being there on the ten year anniversary of 9-11 made it all the more powerful. After I was done shooting photos, I couldn't help but to just sit there on these rocks and take in this amazing view and reflect upon what a stark contrast this was to the experience of ten years ago. Around that same time, ten years ago, I had been sitting on a beach, watching the smoke rising from lower Manhattan.


So… I decided to work on another photo from that magical place.
