Tryptich. Hoodoos and monoliths
printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
An absolutely stunning vista (images captured in 2009) set in a national park in southwestern Utah, Bryce Canyon is a living landscape, continuously sculpted over millennia by frost weathering and stream erosion into natural amphitheatres, filled to brimming with pillars and spires of rock called hoodoos. These fascinating sedimentary rock formations, in layers of red, orange, yellow and white, are hypnotic to behold, like figures from another world crowded into some ancient amphitheatre. They seem to be patiently waiting for something, and have done so from time immemorial. It is tempting to imagine them suddenly coming to life. Bryce Canyon is an experience never to be forgotten and one image alone cannot do it justice. Hence the triptych.
