I know that it seems that I must like orange - and I guess I do! It was late morning and thankfully the sun was still low enough that the east side of this rock face received glancing light that illuminated the weathering while bringing out the rich color of the rock. The Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada is one of my favorite places to shoot as the weathered rock is strewn across the valley floor, making it ideal to capture textures in all sorts of shots. While I have a number of great, expansive shots of the desert rock formations throughout the park, I have a particular fondness for the abstract nature of the rocks when viewed up close. I am pleased that the striations here run diagonally across the frame which almost implies a water-like motion to the rocks. My advice: leave Vegas early in the morning so you can catch some of the early sunlight on these magnificent rocks.
