Sky on Fire by papatheo Sky on Fire by papatheo
We discovered this drive on the previous night on our way into Moab when we caught only the last of that sunset which lit up several of the red rock faces along the Colorado River. We got an early start at Canyonlands: getting there way before sunrise and chasing down some full moon landscapes... but we knew we wanted to return to this area for sunset.

Sunset view alongside Highway 128 about 25 miles from Moab, Utah.

This is amazing.

It's like peaking into a rare glimpse of the raw, wild force of nature. Two seemingly contradictory elements of air and fire, cloud and light combining together into a calm yet fiery formation.

Stunning, especially with the dark lighting

Looks like nature put on quite a show for you that night. The dramatic clouds and light conditions sure made for a stunning image with a wonderful mood.
