Wave Closeup

Coyote Buttes North, Arizona

This a tight, abstract composition of the fantastical Wave Navajo sandstone with its dramatic swirls and curls. On the last Friday in February, 2013, my wife and I were lucky enough to win the walk-in lottery held by the Bureau of Land Management in Kabab, Utah for a hiking permit to The Wave in Coyote Buttes North of the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Wilderness. Hiking directions were a bit obscure, mostly going from landmark to landmark on the on-again, off-again trail through arroyos, across slickrock, and across open desert. The total distance, one-way was nearly three miles. After some trial and error, we finally found our way to The Wave. It is just as crazy in person as it is in photographs. It does resemble frozen waves except in crazy striped reddish-orange instead of sea green. In this close-up abstract, I center the view right down the middle of The Wave, drawing the viewer in with incredible detail from the 8x10 film. Just a hint of the blue desert sky provides contrast with the immersion of color in the Navajo sandstone. All total, we spent about eight hours hiking into and out of the permit area and making photographs and I used every sheet of 8x10 film I carried with me. Absolutely amazing geological beauty!
