"The northern district of Canyonlands National Park, called Island In The Sky, earns its name with this view from the main road near Grand View Point. The pale colored sandstone that encloses the Green River in the mid-ground is called the White Rim, with the Buttes of the Cross on the far side and the Maze District of the Park behind them. I had to think on this composition for a bit, but ultimately decided to try it and see if I could successfully compose this so as to get the vast sense of scale from the low foreground, using values and color temperatures to convey the scale and distance of the river and buttes beyond. If you ever really want to get a sense of how vast and intricate the canyon country of eastern Utah is, you should make a trip to Grand View Point. It is truly awe-inspiring." -Stephen C. Datz
