Southern Utah, USA
This is a shot I snapped while exploring the slot canyons around Escalante, Utah. Utah has consistently remained my favorite place to return to over and over again for adventures. I always brag about how beautiful and diverse the landscape is in Utah when I'm traveling. I can't keep track of the amount of hours I've spent driving up dirt roads looking for secluded places to camp and shoot milky way photos over a campfire. On this trip, I spent 3 and a half weeks roaming around Utah and Eastern California aimlessly. It was a new moon during the first week and I got some amazing milky way shots along with time-lapses of the milky way moving across the night sky. We ended our trip in San Francisco and I was stupid and left my backpack in the car while we went to catch a sunset somewhere. When we came back our window was smashed and my backpack was stolen. Aside from loosing my laptop, what was more frustrating was that I lost ALL of my photos from my recent travels. This is one of the shots I got during that trip that I took with a Sony a6000 and had sent to my phone via wifi. It's very low-res, but it still tells the story and looks halfway decent on my laptop so I'm sharing it here. Pictured here is a guy we met along the hike climbing up to let a couple other people pass us to get out of the canyon. It's so narrow in there that passing other explorers can prove to be a bit difficult if you aren't a good climber (which I'm not).
