Dead Horse Point

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 18 November 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Dead Horse Point, near Moab, Utah, at sunrise. The warm early light sets the whole area aglow. That's the Colorado River down there reflecting the red rocks. What a sight! It's time to take a look at southern Utah, U.S.A.

Part of the Great American West series.

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

Without that green wood there at the bottom right, you would think that you have gone a month.

It is one of more beautiful places than it was given to me to visit. A grand, impressive, fabulous place. Thank you Steve to return me a few years behind.
The light and composition are splendid
