Unfortunately, this didn't photograph very well; in real life, the slopes and cliffs of the canyon walls aren't as contrasty. After looking at the photo, I went back down to make adjustments and realized that it was the photo...you'll just have to take my word that it does look much better in person.
I leave for Moab in a week. Our planned trip to go tomorrow is canceled because of - bad weather. I'm disappointed, as I'd intended for this week's trip to be a scouting trip to secure locations to paint ahead of time. Ah well...it's not the first time lousy weather has caused plans to change, so I'll just have to go with the flow.
