Rattlesnake Canyon Evening Summer Sunset 716-1

Centennial Arch, Rattlesnake Canyon

As the colors were fading over Rattlesnake Canyon on a summer evening, the crescent moon came into view. This was the last image of the evening before we began the long walk back to the campsite in the dark, but the colors, the sky, and the amazing rock formations of this pristine area left me thankful for the time I had to explore and photograph such a beautiful area.
