"Castle Valley View" In a small and relatively unknown area above Moab, Utah, USA, the sun cast its last rays of the day. Castle Valley lay a thousand feet below with towering monoliths reaching into the sky.
VALLEY VIEW SUNRISE - Couldn't have asked for better conditions, photography wise. The forest fire that began beyond Half Dome several days earlier left the valley in a haze of smoke in the early morning and evenings – creating this beautiful diffuse light. I took the same picture at the beginning of the week before the haze was present, and it looks like a black & white compared to this one.
