I went back to the Home-country — i.e. the Four Corners — in February and March, and headed out to the Great Sage Plain along the Colorado-Utah border and to the Canyon Country of far-southeastern Utah. Spring is one of my favorite times to take photos in the region because of the way the light frolics with the landscape as clouds race across the moody sky.
Since we are all trying to stay home, and therefore can’t get out to these lands right now, I figured I’d share some of the images to provide a little escape from our collective isolation.
