Photographer's Note

Hi
Many requests for a larger version, so here it is...

The Wave is located on the Colorado Plateau, near the Utah and Arizona border. The area is a gallery of gruesomely twisted sandstone, resembling deformed pillars, cones, mushrooms and other odd creations. Deposits of iron claim some of the responsibility for the unique blending of color twisted in the rock, creating a dramatic rainbow of pastel yellows, pinks and reds.

Permits are needed to visit this area, only 10 people are allowed per day, and you have to apply 4 months in advance online. Permits go on sale on the 1st day of the month at mid-day mountain time and sell out very quickly.
