Terrestrial Synergy

White Pockets, a remote wilderness in Vermont Cliffs, Arizona is really an otherworldly landform. This place is quite a challenge to get to, making it even more of a special experience to photograph. I was awestruck with vast expanses of eroded sandstone cliffs shaped by the turbulent natural forces. To fully capture the experience, I camped here overnight and shot a lot of different scenes but what captivated me the most is this moment after a fiery sunset when stars started popping up.
