Following the Lewis and Clark trail to the Pacific, I came across these striations in the stone at the Great Springs that the expedition visited some 200 years ago, and made an image of the textures of rock, water and light as they interacted in the evening.

I have been exploring Penitente Canyon in Colorado for nearly two decades, including as a government employee, mountain biker, rock climber, and photographer. Its red walls, iridescent in the early morning light, have always called to my eye with a romantic tone, and one early July morning, I found that color and light too much to resist.
