„Somewhere between Utah and Arizona“

from the gallery of Andre Distel

Once outside the National Parks in Southwestern US, the crowds start to disappear and you could image what it must have been like to life here in the wild west 100 years ago.
This shot was taken somewhere between Utah and Arizona. I remember us leaving Mexican Hat, UT and heading north towards Capital Reef National Park. We climbed up the hill with our car on gravel roads and were rewarded with what turned out to be one of the most stunning scenes. The typical hills and plains of the wild west. A lonely farm sitting in the middle of it with a road winding its way through the desert. The sun was setting behind the clouds and gives a nice soft light on the rocks in the foreground and the fields that were in front of us. One of those perfect moments when the shutter clicks. If anyone remembers this location, feel free to let me know and will add it here.
