The photos I'm sharing here are all from Utah. These pictures have quickly become some of my favorite images I have ever shot (and convinced me that, no, I do not need a new camera. My little Nikon D3000 is perfect just the way she is) and have an emotional resonance when I look at them and recall the joy of these adventures.
Arches National Park
Zion National Park
We drive through lightning storms, though we hear no roll of thunder. A train rattles through, a noise less heard and more felt, a feeling like nowhere else I have ever been. At sunset, arches soar above us and I cry out in amazement, the fact that this real. This is ours. If you ever needed proof that God exists, this is it.
Surprise snow flurries in Bryce Canyon, alternating dark and light, remarkable clouds mounting in the sky, clinging over the ridges. I would take this forever, if it's on the table. I want all of this that is new, I want all of this with you. I wake with exuberance, and breathe with emphasis.
