I have lived here for 15 some years now and still cannot get my fill.Incredible rock formations. Could spend a lifetime photographing that area.
For many of those 15 + years My wife & I would choose an interesting location and travel on the weekends.Quite dramatic strata and colours. Well captured. Agree with Scott - so much to choose...
Thank you David.The colors and patterns are beautiful. Nice shots!
The Colors become amazing as the sun begins and ends. Otherwise, if you google images White Pocket, the colors in the day are "Nice", but when the sun gets low, that's when the rocks begin the Show.Beautiful capture. Colors are so brilliant. Like the composition of #1 with the lone tree in the foreground.
Thx BalamiWonderful scenery.
This place is called "White Pocket" for a reason, Much of the lighter sandstone is actually very white.Love shots 2 and 3, wonderful colour palate and the rock formations are captivating.
We certainly don't have much of an architectural history like Europe, But we have had some pretty amazing "Freak Show's" take place in the distant and recent past to create such wonders.You may not have the history that the Uk has, but you sure do have the geology .... great images Shawn
I have never "Officially" been, but have passed thru on a few occasion.Have you made any trips to New England Shawn?
They never get tiresome, no matter how many times I've seen the same "old" formations, they are always impressive.Great formations, and you are so lucky in the western states, so many natural wonders
We have to fly 10-12hours to get there so we love it all. We have good stuff here, but the scale is just immense over there. Just the roads between places are generally at 5000 foot ASL. There's nowhere in UK that high.I have never "Officially" been, but have passed thru on a few occasion.
I would love to get out there during the color change of trees. Our Quaking Aspens and Cottonwoods are impressive when in color, but have nothing on NE.

It is amazing to me that many who have lived their entire lives here in AZ, look at the desert as a bunch of rocks and cactus.
I'm glad I'm a transplant. I also think I look at things a little differently than most.
My concerns are that I post too many images, I have so many. My hope is they are enjoyed by those who have never been to the SW.We have to fly 10-12hours to get there so we love it all.

We don't have hoodies, layers like painted desert and below, or all the features carved by the Colorado river, the slot canyons, and so.
Even just travelling between sights is amazing. First visit to grand Canyon we drove for an hour through the remains of a forest fire. Nothing in UK is an hours drive long. (apart from bloody traffic - but I'm talking 50-60miles)
A few of us on the forum have visited, none have been disappointed.
I've been twice with the same people, (two who have passed away now) but Ray in his 80s who did NOT enjoy the first drive to antelope Canyon has been twice and would love to go again. I would do it again too.
Tho I'd prefer to go hiking to lesser known less mental ones, and places like the wave too. So much for you guys to see!
Flagstaff is a long way from the Rim. But it is a great jumping off point.Never think you are posting too many images. Loads of us here love to see them.
We've done both north and south rim on different trips. We had sunset on both as it happens. But the first time, North rim we did on a Friday. We were just getting motels where we were. Except all of USA was doing the same around grand Canyon on a Friday. It was 2am before we found a motel we would stay in, and I think it was in flagstaff!
I'm glad to hear that! On another thread I was critiqued about over-working the images.these look WAY better on my calibrated Dell than they did on my phone!
I think you need to go to these places to appreciate it's really like that especially with good light.I'm glad to hear that! On another thread I was critiqued about over-working the images.
That made me a little self conscience about my post workflow. I don't want to post images of a beautiful desert,
I want to present the Beautiful desert in all her Splendor, with-in the limitations of my abilities.
