This is Bryce Canyon, Utah. The Sun was setting in front of us and created a highlight behind the hoodoos. Apart from the light, the sand sediments have created a wonderful range of orange and red tones. I hope this fragile environment will stay this way for many more years!

This road is one of the most spectacular roads you can drive on in the States. It takes you in and out of Zion National Park. This was on our (my brother and I) way out of the park, in the mid-afternoon, during the 2009 Fall season.

Located in South Utah, this geologic wonder is only accessible through a dirt road called Cottonwood Rd. I was alone when I took this photo, no other tourists around and it was very peaceful, with the sound of the wind and birds only.

Taken on a cold winter day just west of Salt Lake City, Utah. Just west of Stansbury Island on the Great Salt Lake are evaporation ponds used to harvest salt and brine shrimp. During the winter these ponds are often full of water because the extra precipitation. The calm reflection and the salt buildup on the rocks in the foreground mixed with the clouds helps create a seamless bridge between sky and ground.
On the drive to California I stopped near the border of Utah and Nevada to see the Bonneville Salt Flats, where Bonneville Speedway is located. Several land speed records have been set there, as it's a vast expanse of flat salt ideal for high speeds. I photographed the long road that takes you there.
