I’m just back from a great (and chilly) trip to Utah. Even though I ran into some snowy conditions and had to change some of my plans, I had an awesome time and got some great photos. I am excited to share these with you over the next several weeks.
Today’s photo comes from the Coral Pink Sand Dunes in Kanab, Utah which was the first stop on my trip. I stumbled across this place online during my research and decided to stop on my way to Bryce. It was incredible watching the sand turn from a dull yellow to a golden orange, fiery red and becoming a soft pink during the last light after sunset. If you are ever in the area of Kanab, this place is definitely worth a visit!
This particular shot was taken about 30 minutes before the sun set behind the distant mountains. The intense rays of the sun painted the dunes this brilliant orange color which contrasted perfectly with the beautiful blue sky overhead. This is one of the very few times that I had hoped for a blue sky sunset and I was fortunate enough to get what I was looking for!
So after months of research and planning I am finally on the road to Utah today. The plan is to be on the road by 3am today and make it to Lake Powell around sunrise before crossing over into Utah. I have a full 5 days of shooting before I make my way back home on Monday so I will not be able to update my blog during that time. You can however follow me and Google+ and Facebook where I will be posting updates whenever chance and signal allow. Hope you have a great week and I will see you soon!
