views along the road

An interesting series of pictures taken on highway 89 south of Page, Arizona.  We see the interesting visual effects of late afternoon sun and shadow on the rock walls of this cut.

 

 

 

Proceeding north, we capture this image.

 

 

A moment later, the color of the rocks seems to have changed from a pinkish orange to a golden brown.

 

 

The steep rock walls of this highway cut seem to enclose us in shade.

 

 

Earlier, we see this bland landscape under a blue sky bisected by the ribbon of black asphalt.

 

 

We observe one of the passing lane areas in the southbound direction of the highway.

 

 

A look to our right, to the east in the late afternoon.

 

 

In this image, we were approaching the cut through the rock walls featured in the first 4 shots above.  The blue sky provides good color contrast to the rocks below.
