Sunrise from Petrified Dunes

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 19 December 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

One of my favorite places in Snow Canyon State Park was up on these massive outcrops of Navajo sandstone. They began as sand dunes but were compressed into stone over the eons. I decided to try a sunrise from up here.

OH! This is Magnificent, Steve!!! I am very envious (read jealous, LOL) that you have had the great fortune to visit all these beautiful places....but the "jealousness" is short-lived and becomes a total source of pride when I realize that a good friend and great photographer has been there...This is absolutely wonderful :-)
