Arches National Park, Utah. August 2006.
I love the colors. The rocks and sand were so red, and the sky was so blue, and those weird bushes had that sage-green look going on. Those colors don't even need Photoshop (although if I could afford it I probably would have used it). But my absolute favorite thing about this picture is the jet trail. It adds an interesting element.
This picture was a labor of love. It was so hot that day I thought I was going to die. Pushing 100 with the sun beating down and not a breeze in sight, surrounded by red earth and no trees for shade. I suppose I could have huddled up under one of those bushes. And did I mention we were hiking? It was brutal.
So you had darn well better enjoy it.
