On rare occasions I find absolute perfection in nature, where beauty, form, shape and color all connect. This was one of those occasions. Deep in the walls of this amazing canyon, I felt an amazing presence. I was well underground, close to nature’s heart and soul. I stood in total awe, staring up at the most beautiful natural sculpture I have seen in my life, carved entirely by nature’s hands of time. The overhead sun was moving in fast, and I knew I had to get this frame in the next 15 minutes.
