12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Second Wave Vista

This view is from the Second Wave formation, just beyond the famous "Wave" formation in the Coyote Buttes in the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness area. If it is possible, there are just too many leading lines in this amazing area. The trick is to find a good subject and good composition. The key to the photo was the cap provided by the clouds trailing some rain in the distance.
