The Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park. A permit-only maze of sandstone that takes hours to navigate. If one starts early enough, it's fairly easy to spend the whole duration of the hike in complete silence and solitude. Getting lost, and in the process, finding some of the most amazing views in the park, and perhaps the world.
A supercell rolls in over the Eastern Cape highlands. Very scary, but exciting experience. I failed horribly to capture this one with a decent composition or a few strikes in, considering that the lightning was dropping like crazy on the horizon. I'm going back in 5 days, so better shots to come
