    This photo was taken during a bucket list trip to drive the White Rim Road in Canyonlands National Park. All the research I did stated the absolute best place to camp was at the White Crack camp site. This turned out to be true. Though there were no clouds to for the sunset I had hoped for, the colors of the sun setting over the red rock were amazing. To stand at the edge of the cliff and overlooking the beauty of the Monument Basin leaves one in awe of the power of nature and how small our

    Title or Location: Heber City
    While traveling on route 113 from Midway to Heber City on a recent Sunday morning, I noticed this grouping of cattle motionless. The temperature was in single digits, with a gloomy overcast sky. My Canon R6 with a 24-105mm was by my side. I was impressed with the alignment of the cattle, the snow covered mountain in the background and the entire composition was perfect for taking before the scene was rearranged.Aperture: f11, shutter speed : 1/800, ISO: 640, focal length: 105mm.

It's this city's glow causing the light pollution on the horizon.Wickenburg was once called the "Dude Ranch Capital of the World". It still has several ranches and a decidedly western vibe.
