A Spiritual Sunset by Jacob-Routzahn A Spiritual Sunset by Jacob-Routzahn
For many years I've stared at this location, but only behind glass and inside a frame. Always crossing my fingers I would have my chance at that special opportunity to experience this amazing place for myself.

Then finally, that opportunity arose. I made my plans, located the area and took a hike, twice actually. The first evening, I shot from 5 pm to 1 am, soaking up every bit of detail I could cram into my little brain. So as to never forget such a unique and historic place.

There was only one issue, the evening wasn't what I had pictured in my head for my shot. So, the following evening I returned to not only be greeted by an extremely hospitable German native named Peter Sierla, that by the way allowed me to shoot this with his 24mm f/3.5 TS-E, but the sunset I had been waiting for.

The temperature, the lighting, the location, the company, everything was just........perfect.

I'll never forget this evening.

Amazing area for sure... I was in the backcountry for 3 days hoping to get some nice photos, but it was overcast and rainy non-stop haha.

Guess I'll have to come back and for another try at making a photo as great as this :D

Yeah I was prepared for 3 days of sun and heat, but that turned out otherwise.

It still was an amazing experience to be there all alone, but I was happy to make it out too ;)
 
At the time the whole area was suffering from a low-pressure area + heavy rain that stuck around for a few days.

Man, any crazy shots from the trip?  And which district were you at when you visited Canyonlands?
