Peer Over the Horizon by Jacob-Routzahn Peer Over the Horizon by Jacob-Routzahn
On the first morning of Rachael and my anniversary trip, we went to the Canyonlands well before sunrise to get acquainted with the surroundings. We were told about a certain location to start a morning shoot at and so we did. As we waited for sunrise, I continually scanned the area for opportunities other than the obvious. This is one of those I crossed my fingers on once the sun rose. However, it wasn't until the sun rose that the landscape revealed its true beauty. The fragile layers of erosional forces discovered with the early light. Such power, such patients mother nature has when crafting her beauty. What a connection we felt.

This is beautiful. The haze in the distance almost makes it look like a painting.

You're welcome! Sorry for the late reply.

Those are two fabulous photos with cool stories that go with them. But I prefer the original photo (this one) because I remember seeing something like it once, though not as beautiful as your photo. Subjective thing, ya know? =)

I have taken my son to some fabulous places out west. But next year I am hoping we can go to Southeastern Utah to experience Monument Valley, Glen Canyon and perhaps Canyonlands. This is a wonderful preview of the potential that awaits anyone with an eye for beauty in the Southwest. Thank you for sharing.

Out of those I would definitely take the time to go and visit the Canyonlands. There are three districts that are huge and oh so gorgeous. The island in the sky is delightful with huge vistas. However, if you go, maybe think about early April or mid October. Cooler and less people.
