Sunrise on Sentinel Mesa

Always great waking up in Monument Valley! This is beautiful Sentinel Mesa in the morning sun!

Navajo Weaving

The King on His Throne

This is one of the great formations in Monument Valley, Arizona. They are almost always referred to by their “Hollywood names”, and this one is The King on His Throne.



Desert Monolith

This was a cool formation somewhere near upper Lake Powell in Utah.


Beautiful Bryce Sunset

It is great to be back at Bryce Canyon in Utah. While I prefer the sunrise here, this was a really beautiful sunset.

I do love Monument Valley in the morning. This is beautiful Sentinel Mesa in Arizona.


First Light on Monument Valley

This is sunrise from Mitten View in Monument Valley on the Navajo Reservation. in Arizona.



Zion National Park in Utah never ceases to humble and amaze me. The cliffs of Zion are never far from my thoughts and it is always a pleasure to be back.


Grafton House

I like tiny Grafton ghost town in southeast Utah. I have taken a lot of photos here. This house has been getting some work done to preserve it over the last few years. Life was tough in Grafton, but the scenery is hard to beat.


Perspective at Bryce Canyon

This is first light at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I like this shot because the people on the left side give some perspective on the size of Bryce. One of my favorite parks, for sure.


Bryce Daybreak

This is a view of Bryce Canyon from Inspiration Point, right as the sun peaked over the clouds in the morning. Magical.


Monument Valley Sunset

Shooting photos in Monument Valley on the Arizona Utah border in the heart of the Navajo Nation never gets old. This is right around sunset.
