Goblin Valley

  The Universe. Stranger than we imagine. Stranger than we can imagine.   Goblin Valley is in Utah. It’s as strange a place as exists in the natural world. The geological features here are bizarre. Utah is filled with awesome geology. I’ve been photographing Utah for years, as have hundreds of photogs. It’s mesmerizing and […]

Cave Spring, Utah

Trundling around the American Southwest again, happened upon a very short trail to Cave Spring in Utah’s southern Canyonlands. The place has an other-worldly creepiness to it. I half expected to peer into a darkened rock alcove and find some thousand year old wild animal or possibly a prehistoric human lurking there. Didn’t find either. […]

Strangely, the available images of the site all use the same general POV.  Nice enough, but repetitious.  Enter the landscape photographer’s mantra: “Enjoy the beautiful scene before you but remember to look […]

Worth the hike…

In Moab, Utah again last month which is not the subject of this post, rather the area around Moab, brimming with a wealth of spectacular geology and early American history. I refer specifically to “False Kiva”, google it if you must. Directions for the hike to the site abound. Pay particular attention to the one […]
