A Different Perspective


I headed out to this very popular formation known as "The Wave" about an hour before sunset, only to find a dozen or more people already there (many of them from Europe.. there are no secrets anymore!), all looking for the same shot, so it was hard to set up without getting in someone's way, or someone getting in mine.  As often happens, I ended up waiting for everyone else to head home as it got close to sundown and then started looking around for a non-standard view that might capture it in an equally interesting, but fresh perspective.  I find this one much preferable to the views I shot from the "standard" spot anyway.. and, as a bonus, I later got some very nice golden hour scenes along the one mile trail back up to the road.

Nice shot. Seems like most people leave early which is a bonus for you.

;') No, there are no more secrets when it comes to those perfect spots to photograph from. This is beautiful and I look forward to future shares~

Hello mark,

Congrats for the unusual point of view and for your patience :)
Personally, i tend to avoid more and more popular places.
