Rock Candy

Aperture Academy Photography Workshops


I was hiking around the Escalante Grand Staircase Wilderness, specifically the South Coyote Butte area, when I came across this 2 foot tall rock. I took a double take when I first saw it and since it was nearly sunset, I planted my tripod and decided to spent the last light of the day over this little fella.


As I was working on a composition, I started thinking about what this looked like...and what I might call the photo if I decided to publish it...


- R2-D2 (dont ask me why??)

- Earth Taffy

- Sherbet

- Dream-cycle

- Rock Candy


Then, my mind turned into a 5 year old and I pictured a dinosaur doing that thing my dog does when his butt itches...and leaving a trail...but I digress ;)


What does it look like to you??
