Boring Blue Skies

While having beautiful blue skies is great for getting out to play and staying warm and cheery, it’s not that fun for photography.  Photographically, I’m depressed and long for a cloud in the sky.  It’s days like this when I wish I were in canyon country to take advantage of reflected light off of sandstone.  Reflected light is harder to take advantage of down here in sky island country and it’s fairly non-existant in desert country with it’s vast open-ness.

Days like today just make me want to go climbing.  Too bad I have to work.

  1. Oh that looks familiar. Beautiful composition with great depth.

  2. This image really speaks to me. I love the sense of depth, color, and the composition is wonderful, too.

    • Thanks, Adam! I was sitting around not 15 feet from Harley Goldman when this image came to me. It’s an image I’d pre-visualized a long time ago and tried to make down in Sedona, but never got the elements together. In this canyon it happened!
