In this photograph, the incredible geology of Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument seems to have found its match in the incredible skies overhead. When we visited this place with one of our students, he described the breathtaking scene before him with a wide-eyed “FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!” We visited this spot several times before the skies decided to put on a show.
This image highlights textures and patterns in nature. I chose to fill the image with different textures and repeating patterns. Because the colors in the sky were high overhead, I chose a vertical composition for this shot.
How many basic rules of the composition can you identify in this photograph?
