Sandstone Pano


Moab Here I Come

Arches National Park, Utah

It has been a dreary winter since my last trip in early December. I can't remember a worse winter, and, of course, it was the first time in several years that we didn't head south in February for a couple of weeks. Not going to happen next year. I have come out of hibernation and am flying out early tomorrow for eight days on a photo tour. The destination is Utah (with a quick overnight in Grand Junction, Colorado) to visit some of my favorite areas in Moab. 

For those of you who have not been to Moab, it is very close to Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Other photo-rich areas are Dead Horse State Park, Fisher Towers, and the mighty Colorado River. The scenery there is amazing, with great color contrasts of the bright oranges of the sandstone against the blue skies (hopefully with great cloud formations). Today's image is of Turret Arch, which serves as a foreground to the beautiful La Sal Mountains.   

One of the reasons that Moab is near and dear to me is that it was a trip there with my son in 2005 that re-ignited my passion for photography after a long layoff from the hobby. I will not be posting until late next week, when I get back to Connecticut. Till then, enjoy the start of Spring.
