Back to black and white. I photographed this image in the middle of my last afternoon at Capitol Reef. Who says you can’t create a good image in the middle of the day. It was a beautiful afternoon. The overhead sun lit up the Henry Mountains as well as provided nice shadows in the valley below. I had the point all by myself. It was a wonderful and peaceful feeling. Looking down at the cliff walls and valley below, I was experiencing over 100 million years of history. Human existence is pretty insignificant in the scheme of the natural wonders of our planet. Let us all protect it for future generations.
