desert shadow

Looking southeast over a tiny corner of Lake Powell…just north of Page, Arizona….

  1. Got me the same picture as part of my panorama shot of Lake Powell (my 12MB monster).

    . . . I need to get back there – I liked that trip. Thanks for the reminder.

    • I’ve spent a week or so on the lake, twice in my lifetime, and have terrific memories of both occasions…..and like you, I need to get back there again…. 🙂

  2. Are you getting back into the feel of the southwest landscape? It seemed you really took to the Utah mountains. The land around you now is just as inspiring, but such a different look, right?

    • The southwest landscape appeals to me visually…or aesthetically, Lynn, but the rich green of the aspen and pine forest-covered mountains with their attendant rivers and streams and lakes speak to the core of my being in a way that fairly escapes words. So, I look at this new/old landscape with new eyes, certainly, viewing it through a camera lens, truly searching, intentionally, for what I might find as interesting and beautiful….

  3. The contrast here from your previous images is pretty stark. Hope you’re doing well in this new environment.

    • So very stark in the differences, Gunta….and I’m working on it. 😉

  4. It took me a while to understand what I was seeing. This is an unfamiliar landscape to someone who grew up in the woods.

    • There’s an incredible amount of open space out there, Allen…so very different than the woods, as you can see.

  6. Wow, beautiful, Scott. Such wonderful light. I could like this place, I think.

    • It is beautiful in its desert way, George…but it’s also damn hot and there’s no shade! 😉

  7. The vastness and emptiness is quite breathtaking.

    I like the composition here with the lake included – the vast desert sandwiched between the blue.

    • Thank you, Meanderer…images of the lake out here can be incredible with the red of the rocks and the matching blue of the sky….

  9. Wow, I love the raw physical nature of the land that you captured…Gorgeous photo.

    • Thank you, Charlie…and “raw” is a good word for describing the desert out there.

    I’ve always intended to get to Lake Powell, but never have. I love the layers of color from water, to desert, to sky. What a place!

    • It is an incredible place, LB…I recommend it highly!
