I spent two evenings hiking around trying to find a nice vantage point to photograph this very unique region – this was the best vantage point I could find. The 24 Hours of Moab was held on the other side of this area. I guess you could say, it was behind Behind the Rocks.
I thought it would be a fascinating area to explore, but these things are huge, I don’t see any way in there without doing some serious climbing with ropes and stuff – something beyond my capabilities! I was reading about the area on the BLM website, and I thought this summed it up well: “There are extreme topographical constraints to foot travel within this WSA”
This was captured with a 100-400 at 400 from 655 meter away on the opposite side of the Colorado River. The exposure was a 20th of a second @ f/11 and a ISO of 100.
