Just for this one moment.

Just for this one moment.

It’s always changing, and it’s ever beautiful. Our driver, who’d lived near Page, Arizona for decades, was insistent. Even as she was saying this that morning, the sunrise suddenly lit up the Vermillion Cliffs with slivers of golden red.

I wanted to get out of the car to take a photo, but I thought better of it. There were plenty of chances to take photos of nice things. Don’t waste time. But she made it plain that she’d be happy to pull over — she should pull over for us. So we did, I took a photo and gawked for a bit standing outside the car.

Less than a minute after I got back in, it was gone.

Everything is just a moment. Enjoy the moments.

    I love this picture. It is totally in the moment, beautiful, and mysterious.

    One general comment:
    All your pictures are beautiful, but you should balance them with the human factor. By that I mean to take some close-up pictures of you and your friend with nature as the background. Nature is always there, but people change. So capture the moment, your moment.

    But what if my friend is absolutely dorky?

    But terrifically wise words. There are photos of us folk in these places (just not posted here), and I’m sure that I’ll cherish those more than any of these other images.

    It is the moments with people that matter most. Good advice, well taken.
