Desert Oddities by tourofnature Desert Oddities by tourofnature
Early morning light and fog enhance an already dramatic landscape. Being is a place like Arches National Park during conditions like these was really an awesome experience. I tried to capture just a hint of what the mood actually was in the park during the time I spent there.

The morning hoarfrost coated everything in a white casing, and this mature juniper tree provided a nice foreground for the image.

This is quintessentially an American landscape shown as just an evocation of the great Western scenes sent around the world by the film industry but transformed here into a genuinely original view which gives truth to the myth makers at the studios.

As an urban kid I would watch hours of westerns in black and white on television or go to the theaters and see them in CinemaScope. It was usually warm and hot as shown in those images. A tamed west compared to the real one.

Here, it is cold and foreboding yet still magical and certainly full of the kind of mystery that would generate countless stories about the rock formations, the peoples of the fog and the gods of nature.
