From Heaven Above – The River Road Pt. 4

The drive on the River Road was a perfect finale to a wonderful road trip to Utah. I’m going to complete this series with two images, the first of which I call From Heaven Above and the 2nd is an image of the open Road to Cisco, Utah.  I’m just a sucker for a good open road image!  This final section of the road is more open plains and badlands, but still displaying its quiet beauty.

I couldn’t ask for better scenery and some amazing skies during this 4+ hour trip through eastern Utah. It was pretty much empty road from the Castle Valley on the way to Cisco, Utah. It was just me, the open road and my camera, capturing the next scene that presented itself. My friend Jeff Clow says “if you want to take better pictures, stand in front of better things.” I think I stood in front of a bunch of better things this trip.

Tomorrow, to end the week and the year, 2011, I’m going to present my year-end summary. I hope you enjoyed the year as much as I enjoyed capturing images this past year.
