This might be my favorite image so far of 2012.

I love the way the image came out but the experience is what puts it at or near the top of the list.

I was deep in this canyon for most of the day but I could see the wispy clouds hanging high in the atmosphere, I was trying to think of a shot where I could capitalize on the color of the clouds even down in the canyon. A friend of mine had taken a shot here during mid-day on his trip into the canyon a year prior and earlier in the day I noticed how the light was hitting under this enormous cliff. I came back to the spot at sunset, and right on cue the sky lit up, illuminating the underside of this staggering cliff with soft light providing the unique conditions for the image I was hoping for.

Available as a fine art print here: WEBSITE

Haha, that's one of the best things photography can do, inspire somebody to get outside and enjoy the outdoors like I have. Get out there and try it, you won't regret it. ;) Thanks for your support here and on FB!

Holy moly Wayson. Like I mentioned on the FB post, this is probably the best I've seen from here. The colors here are incredible. Definitely one of your best and one of my all time favorites of yours. Just so ridiculous.
