Rock Wall and Tree Shadow, Capitol Reef, Utah, 2012

Standing in the canyons of Capitol Reef in southern Utah, the Sun passed overhead in that long arc of late summer. In the stillness of the moment, I watched the face of rock change from shadow to light, and in the process reveal surfaces in sensual detail. I felt the cosmic dance — the spinning Earth in orbit around Sun, the arrival of energy that began its 93 million mile journey just minutes before the encounter — and could not help but feel I was witnessing a miracle in each moment.
