One of the many photographs I made earlier this year while visiting some remote sandstone formations. This photo was taken shortly after sunset when there was still enough light to illuminate the landscape, but dark enough to reveal the stars. This is one of my favorite times to take photographs as I love photographing the night skies. I’ve always enjoyed this feature of sandstone swirls, spires, and brainrock. It’s extremely photogenic and it seems to come to life as the light changes over it. With the fading clouds holding on to the last bits of the colorful sunset, Venus shines brightly above. I imagine the foreground rocks and formations in the midground were at one point joined together, but the forces of nature divided them over time to create the split shown between.
