Photo of the Week!

F 8; 1/320; ISO 100; 39mm.

Shot near Moab, Utah.

Utah has no shortage of national parks — Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion — and many of the spaces between them are gorgeous too.  Pictured here is a vista from Utah State Route 313, which connects Canyonlands National Park and Deadhorse State Park to the nearest town, Moab.  All of these sites, plus Moab, sit on the Colorado Plateau, which features dramatic natural formations carved by glaciers and rivers, as well as a desert-like climate.  Even though it’s dry here most of the year, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t snow.  When it does, the views are even more beautiful and, because so few people visit here in the winter, they’re unspoiled too.  It’s simply incredible.
