This is where I’d love to live. Of course, there are a few things that stand in the way of that. First, it’s a national park, so one couldn’t set up housekeeping. Second, It get’s way hot in the summer and I’m already suffering in Billings.

But it may well be that the view and photogenic nature of the area might just make up for the heat. Now all I have to do is to work my way around the Park Service’s rules.

Not only is the country beautiful, but the stunning skies add to the mix. In this image, I think the sky is really the subject and Capitol Reef holds it up and adds a whale of a lot of interest.

You know me, I can’t not do black-and-white. I still think I’ll make a good B&W image one of these days.

 

The colors of the desert are stunning, especially with a little polarization. That’s really the only manipulation this image got.
