Sandstorm near Hanksville


Fording the Fremont River


Angry looking formations


Colorful Bentonite Hills



Green Hills

  1. The sandstorm photo is kind of apocalyptic looking – something out of Mad Max.


  2. Such a forbidding landscape – parts look like Mordor!

  3. Hello (from Paris – France)

    This place is beautiful. Your photographs with beautiful colors on elements in continuous formation make you want to see in real this fabulous landscape (too far for me)


  4. Reblogged this on Vietnam Travel & Trade Portal .


  5. You’ve done a great job in capturing various moods of this region, Michael, and I especially like the Sandstorm near Hanksville.
