Alone in the Canyon

Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument, Utah

Long canyon cuts through the northern boundary of the Grand Staircase in southern Utah and I a beautiful deep canyon with colorful striated walls. I spent a morning here in mid May looking for a composition of the walls. When I discovered this lone pine up against a particularly colorful section of wall I set up the shit and waited for the right reflected light to bring the scene to life.
