White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Northern Arizona, near the Utah border, is an amazing place that is accessible only by high clearance 4 wheel drive roads through deep sand and rocky terrain. There is no camp ground, no water and no toilets - just an end of a primitive road with one way in or out. White Pocket is known for its alien white and pink rock formations, which makes it a wonderland for compositions.
This was a morning shot of what was going to be another blue sky day at White Pocket. Ugh! For me my favorite comps are usually made with ultra-wide or hyper-wide glass. I tried several compositions at 12 mm but it just wasn’t wide enough. So instead I did a quick series of 16mm portraits, which resulted in this 4-shot stitched pano. The morning sun was just peeking through below my horizon, which gave soft pastel colors on this thin layer of clouds. Two minutes later it was all gone! Taken with the Sony A7rII, using one of my favorite lens for landscapes: the Leica 16-18-21mm F4 ASPH Tri-Elmar-M with the Novaflex adapter.
