Valley Of The Gods

We spent the long weekend on a road trip to Utah and back.
Rocks & Fans
We awoke at sunrise for photos.
Open Road
There are spirits here.
We arrived just as the sun was setting but still light enough to find a decent place to camp for the night.
Delicate Balance
There is one small sign on the highway to signify the turn off to Valley of the Gods Road, more of a gravel path, as it seemed both times I have been out here, only a rare few people visit this area.
Blind Side
 It is a peaceful and amazing place, I wish we lived closer to it.
Circle of Time
If you like the atypical southwestern landscape this is a great place to visit, it's like Monument Valley but on a much smaller scale. The road can be traversed in a car with a an average clearance and it's a great place to take pictures, hike, wander or simply meditate.
Hopefully we'll be back sometime soon, we had a good time and got some great pictures, I also took a few that I compiled for the calendar linked below. 

Please feel free to share and/or buy a couple

"For me the creation of a photograph is experienced as a heightened emotional response, most akin to poetry and music, each image the culmination of a compelling impulse I cannot deny." ~Ruth Bernhard
