|Rock formation at Fantasy Canyon in Utah|
I went out to Venal, Utah for work and was lucky to be able to photograph an amazing formation in the Uintah Basin. Fantasy Canyon is a pristine piece of beauty tucked away inside the vast sprawl of Utah's oil fields. We were there measuring winter time ozone levels which have hit some amazingly high numbers over the past several years, and I had some free time to set up my cameras while the data came down.

We first found out about the small state park because of a curious mind and a brochure in the Vernal Airport Enterprise Rent-a-Car.

I worked the afternoon shift at the canyon several times and was treated to some pretty fantastic sunsets. It felt wonderful out there in the sun, but as soon as it set, temperatures dropped in to the single digits.
