Photo: Christopher Scott @_christopherjs There are a few places on this planet that have been over-photographed, and which are often crowded with photographers. Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, Utah is one of those places. Yet, Christopher has managed to do an image that is a bit different. What I find interesting in this version is the copious amount of negative space and the use of black to isolate the center area creating a natural vignette effect. #xt2#xf14mm#fujifeed
The Temple City Motel was built in the late 1930's. The sign "Motel" and arrow part of the sign are believed to be from the late 1940's. The top panels which depict Salt Lake City's Mormon Temple are believed to be from the early 1950's. The sign was restored in 2016. The panels were not repainted to preserve the sign's patina.
By pure coincidence we visited shortly after the restoration was finished and the owner was proud to show us around and even turn the sign on for us.
Moments like that makes this all worthwhile!
Cedar Breaks sunset
There’s nothing like those sunsets in the desert Southwest. This was taken last year during a timelapse and night photography workshop. Looking forward to returning to Utah in February.
