Spring weather in Utah
|Normally, this is the kind of imagery I like to make while camping at Valley of the Gods|
|On a recent Photo Workshop, I taught the technique of sun stars in Valley of the Gods|
|Our first evening at camp including a walk along Lime Creek. Here's Moochie enjoying the water in the Canyon.|

|My nephew was visiting from New York and we made some art together at camp.|
As I looked south into the Navajo Reservation lands, I could see the approaching wind. We hurried to "batten down the hatches" before it hit. The gust were epic. The sustained winds were at least 40mph and we were able to gather most of the camp and run into our rigs for the afternoon and evening.

|We called it "Camp Blownapart"|
|The sand blew for hours and the sky turned a red-rock color. I dared not take out my DSLR.|
The town of Bluff was in a "black out" as the storm had blown over a handful of power poles which affected all the towns from Moab to Mexican Hat. Lucky for us the Cottonwood Steak house was serving as they had propane barbecue and gas candles for the tables.
