Monekopi Sandstone

The Three Amigos

This image was taken at one of the most remote areas of the American southwest; the rock is an example of Moenkopi sandstone.  The night before I’d been caught up in a very heavy storm; it appeared extremely unlikely I’d get a shot in the morning. The sun had to rise above a line of cliffs before there’d be any light on the formation. I knew the time of sunrise, but could only estimate the time it would take to rise over the cliffs. I was unsure of the precise angle and convinced myself it had already risen, I was close to packing up when for the briefest moment the sun popped out from behind the clouds. I captured the fleeting moments of light before the sun went back behind the clouds.
