  • Three Sisters Sunset

    One of the best pieces of advice I got for sunrise/sunset photos is to constantly look around. We get so fixated on the sunset itself, that sometimes we forget to see the beauty behind us. For me, this is also a great life lesson - Always be sure to look around and absorb all of creation's beauty. Taken at sunset looking east, this is the Three Sisters rock formation at Goblin Valley State Park with Molly's Castle in the distance.

  • Cassidy Arch at Sunset

    Capitol Reef National Park in Utah is a magical place. Sunset brings out the vibrant colors in the rock. The silence of the vast open space calms the senses. All is at peace. Original Dimension: 16 x 24

  • The Sentinel

    Drink in the rich colors and textures of this scene. Feel the cool moist air against your skin. Listen as the birds awake and welcome a new day. All of this and more surrounds a lone bull Bison as he watches over his territory. Original Dimensions: 16 x 24

  • Palmer Lake Star

    The Palmer Lake Star has been part of the town's history since 1935. The star's story goes back to the depression era. It was built to "inspire hope and prosperity" to weary travelers. Today I think it still achieves this lofty goal. Original Dimensions: 8 x 16

  • Solitary Sunset

    Sunsets in the desert can be extraordinarily colorful. This is especially true for White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. I was able to walk around the white dunes all afternoon, enjoying the peaceful winter afternoon. All was quiet and still. My heart sang with joy to see the wonder of nature's colorful sunset.

  • La Sal Sunset

    Taken from The Summit Post: "The La Sal Mountains are Utah's second highest mountain range, and form the famous background behind Moab and background scenes such as Fisher Towers, Canyonlands National Park, and Arches National Park. The La Sal means "The Salt" in Spanish and the mountains were named by the Dominguez/Escalante Expedition in 1776. There are two stories about the naming of the La Sals. The first is that they were named because the soils and valleys surrounding the mountains contain salt. The second is that since the Dominguez/Escalante party passed through the area in August, they just couldn't believe the mountains were covered with snow, so they assumed they were covered with salt as are some of the surrounding valleys. Since summer temperatures often soar to 110F or higher in the valleys, the story isn't as far-fetched as it may seem." Original Dimensions: 10 x 16 (Found in Other Sizes)
