Shiprock, New Mexico

I was on my way moving from Salt Lake City to Tyler, TX. My friend Amy was driving my car, and I was in the passenger seat turned backwards with my camera. The sun was going down and a storm was passing by. For miles, and miles, and miles we could see the outline of some weird looking rock or building or something far out in the distance. As we got closer I realized that it was the famous Shiprock Monument, a rock formation sacred to the Navajo People. It definitely has a mystical appeal, sticking out over 1,500 from the flat desert surrounding it. I don't know if the sunsets and storms around there always make the rock look so wild, but I am glad that we just happened to unexpectedly catch it.

Salty Sunset


This makes me really not want to leave; I could look at these mountains for the rest of my life and be happy.

May.

I fell off the ball with updating in May, so here are some photos!




Hate Mail.

I got a handwritten letter of complaint from someone about this photo saying I should be ashamed for running a photo that is "so disturbing." ...

Zion National Park




I went to Zion National Park with my good friend Tanner to celebrate my last week living in Utah. Next week I start my first full-time job as a staff photographer the Tyler Morning Telegraph in Tyler, Texas. I'm excited for my new adventure, and for living in the South, but I am really, really going to miss Utah.
