Photographer's Note

The Wave - Arizona, USA. This is an incredibly beautiful spot. We got our permit the day before and then hiked 3.5 miles through the desert - without a trail. Sandstone formations like this one - in bright oranges, pinks, and yellows - make this an amazing locations for a landscape photographer. We explored the area and photographed from a variety of locations.

Late in the day, a storm passed overhead. As the clouds settled into the Eastern sky, the sun began to peer through the clouds in the West - just above the horizon. The evening light on the rocks made them look like sculpted gold, and the dark blue sky provided a complimentary backdrop.

We stayed to shoot the sunset and then hiked back by the light of the moon.

I'd love to hear what you have to say. All comments and critiques are welcome.

Thanks very much,
