The Colors Of Earth

14. Juli 2013 — MYP No. 11 »My Souvenir« — Text & Photo: Nirav Solanki

I recently visited Flagstaff, Arizona to shoot a wedding for a client of mine and since Flagstaff is well over 8 hours from where I reside, I decided to go exploring while I was there.

Arizona is truly a magnificent state that has so much natural beauty that one can appreciate, especially for a photographer.

This particular photo was taken at the Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument Park. I was moved by the texture and the colors of earth.

In the background, the mountains add depth to the entire image. I stood for a few minutes embracing this magnificent sight that is not seen everyday. This sight was only one of many I had witnessed on my journey.
