Escalante Part Two

Part Two of my new favorite place on the planet, Escalante Grand-Staircase, with a few from Capitol Reef sprinkled in.  
The desert floor was filled with tiny purple wildflowers, I lit them up at night, using a purple gel to make them glow a bit more.
Temple of the Sun and the Moon in Capitol Reef, catching the first light of day.
Finding beautiful in the smallest details…
A dying leave seeps oils into a puddle in Coyote Gulch.

An old granary hidden in a cliff face. 

A magnificent grove of hoodoo in the backcountry, 10 mi. north of Big Water.
A cool dwelling just off the road south of Page, AZ.
The barn at the Gilford Homestead in Fruita, Capitol Reef NP.
Some more old structures and antiques around the homestead.
A few more from Zebra Canyon.  Was quite a squeeze!
Looking down on Hamblin Arch in the Coyote Gulch. 
Day breaking on the Temples, Capitol Reef.
Clouds cut sharp shadows across the Devil’s Backbone.
So often it feels like all you see in the desert is browns and green for days, so nice to get a splash of an unexpected color.
