Arbiter’s Grounds by alexnoriega

Evening light breaks through monsoonal storm clouds to illuminate the otherworldly sandstone formations of White Pocket, Arizona. A lone figure gives a clue as to the scale of these monoliths.


Consider joining Alex Mody and myself for three days and two nights of sunrise, sunset, nighttime photography, and fully-outfitted camping on this remote desert plateau, featuring the world’s most interesting, unique, and otherworldly sandstone formations in October 2016:

winter ceremony by dgadventurespnw

it was snowing this day at the white pocket. 30 minutes before sunrise, the sky was a solid shade of dark grey – and the wind was brutal and relentless.

My 2 buddies and I had this place all to ourselves for most of the 2 days we were here.

Gumdrop Ridge by Pcoskun

Gumdrop Ridge- This is an image I photographed in south coyote buttes in Northern Arizona. It’s a spectacular place, one of my favorites as soon as I stepped foot onto the landscape here. There are so many interesting rock formations and patterns to admire here. I had seen images of this little rock commonly referred to as the “Gumdrop”. The split tones in the rock make for an excellent photo of itself, but when you look at the ridge behind it, you notice that the pattern continues up the slope. It makes you feel like you are in the game Candyland, and that each tile of rock is a space on the board. This was taken after sunset as the last remaining light was glowing on the rocks. The deep blues of twilight contrasted beautifully with the multicolored sandstone formations.

Colorful Morning by Pcoskun

Earlier this year I had a chance to join a friend and visit one of my favorite locations in the southwest. After a beautiful sunset and a chilly evening. I awoke before sunrise to get out onto the rock formations and find a few compositions. I typically like to find complex compositions with more unique angles, but when I saw this pool and this formation reflecting in it I figured I would go for something a little more straight forward. The few clouds in the sky just happened to be right above this spot and began to light up from the first rays of the sun. The scene transformed to beautiful blues, pinks, oranges, and purples. It truly reminded me of why these landscapes have inspired me for so long. Before I ever began photography, I always thought of the desert as bland and lifeless. However, after exploring a little bit I was obviously wrong. Most people who have never been in the desert would imagine miles of desolate sand and tumbleweed and shades of brown and tan. The desert indeed can come to life in extraoridnary fashion such as in this scene here. The seasonal pool of water and the reflection of the sandstone is probably the last thing people who have never been to the desert would think of. Add to that the amazing display of color that isn’t different shades of brown. Sometimes, I cannot believe I get to live in such an incredible landscape!

End of Days by Kyraly

After almost 100 hours of driving and over 5000 miles this is the last location (White Pocket) of 20 days of shooting the US West Coast. From Forks. Washington to Yuma, Arizona I was fortunate to shoot a wide variety of landscapes with a great group of guys with Marc Adamus on his Ultimate West tour.
