Sometimes choosing an image of the month is really easy, but this month its rather difficult. I just returned from a fantastic trip to southern Utah and Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. Of course I wanted to capture some new images, but it was a time to clear my head, shake some of winter’s cobwebs out of my skull, stretch, and welcome spring on the Colorado Plateau.
The added bonus of revisiting some favorite locations in Utah was discovering someplace new and wonderful. Among landscape photographers, Valley of Fire State Park, near Las Vegas, has been getting a lot of buzz lately, and for good reason. To say this place is amazing is an understatement. If you love colorful vistas, sandstone, and interesting geology, you need to pack your bags and go now. It really is that spectacular. And, there are a lot of unexplored areas waiting to be discovered.
I don’t have a Valley of Fire page set up yet, but I’ll be sharing some new images over the next few days, and will tell you when you can view the gallery. Until then, I hope you enjoy this lovely sunset.
