A Scary Hike?   Leave a comment

Tell me what you see...

At first glance, this looks like a scary place for a hike. But look again. Photographer Darrell Staggs took this photo in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area near the Arizona/Utah Border. Here’s what he had to say about it. “This canyon housed a pool of water that was sheltered from any wind, making it a perfect mirror for the canyon walls lit by the late afternoon sun. The sun was rapidly descending towards the horizon, and lighting was changing every minute. At this time of day, you can sit in a single spot and take an ever-changing set of images of the same subject. Not all spectacular shots are obvious.” Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 5/2/14.
