White Pocket Is Simply Amazing. First Of 3 Posts.

I’ve been out there 4 or 5 times but the light approaching sunset was almost-perfect this time.  White Pocket is an area in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Northern Arizona. It’s a difficult drive on sandy roads to get there, but well worth the struggle.  One vehicle that only had 2-wheel drive got stuck in the sand and was only rescued when a Jeep Wrangler with a winch showed up and saved this couple a large towing bill.

Utah’s Extraterrestrial Highway

Highway 24 is a fascinating stretch of remoteness and anomalies.  I’ve never been to Mars but images of its landscape are remindful of the sandstone quirks along Highway 24.

Spring Photography Workshops- Here In The Desert Southwest

I will be conducting personal 1 on 1 photo workshops here in the Desert Southwest. I will bring you to those “hard to get to”places  that you may have seen in my photos at Dawn2Dawn Photography

Contact me for details or thoughts on a personalized photo expedition.  I will not only teach you new photography techniques, but as a former interpretive guide, you will learn about the areas we explore.

I will also be conducting a multi-day group workshop at Zion National Park the first week of November when fall colors are at peak. Stay tuned for details.
