Sharing moments in time…

The Old West


I’m actually on the road again – to the Grand Canyon this time – but I thought I’d leave you with another view of the area around Canyonlands, Arches and Moab Utah.  This photo was taken in the Colorado River Valley just outside of Moab.  It is a beautiful canyon with many iconic views of the surrounding mesas.  I saw this rickety old fence as we were driving down the road along the river and used it as a foreground to some of the majestic mesas that seem to be everywhere in this area.  It was kind of a dull, cloudy day so I thought I’d process the photo as a B&W (with a little sepia thrown in).  Looks like something out of an old western movie to me.

John Wayne should be around somewhere....

  3. Wow! Out of an old Western Movie… or maybe a modern apocalyptic view… 😉 Love it either ways, especially in B&W. Enjoy your trip!

    • RR – never thought of the apocalyptic angle – maybe John Wayne meets Mad Max?
