I made this image several years ago in Canyonlands after being chased from False Kiva by the storm you see here. I saw it coming and knew I didn’t want to be caught in it so I hustled back to my truck. On the drive out I decided to stop at Green River Overlook since the storm hadn’t yet hit us. I had just enough time to set up my tripod and make two exposures before all hell broke loose. I grabbed my tripod, camera still attached, and dashed back to the truck in swirling winds and sleet. Well worth it, though!

Very cool. We’ve got quite a bit of snow on the ground now and likely more on the way. I hope the parks are open when you visit but either way, make it a point to visit Dead Horse Point. It’s my favorite place in the whole Moab area.
Lisa, the location Bret mentions is excellent for overview photographs of the canyon below. However, be sure to have very warm outdoor clothing and mittens at this location. I spent 2 years in Alaska and was never so cold as the hour long photographing of the sunrise at DHPO one February years ago now…Brrrrr
Woof, this is absolutely incredible. In the rare case these images are captured, I find a challenge processing them because pretty much anything you do to them looks great - instead of using processing to “correct” an image, you have to think more about the artistic expression. Really nice job.
