Southern Utah, USA
Near US Highway 89 in southern Utah is an area called White Rocks. It is located on BLM land, and is almost completely barren due to the limited rainfall, arid air, and roaming cattle --- The cattle eat up whatever small bit of foliage that dares grow in this inhospitable climate. Notwithstanding the remoteness and bleak plateau, if you wander to the edge of the plateau, you will find this majestic view!
Due to the high contrast in varying terrain textures, I decided to make this one in black and white. And thanks to fellow photographer Dustin LeFevre, who volunteered to model, I was able to show scale to this majestic place!
Chad Dutson is a wilderness photographer who occasionally ventures into fine art portraiture. He strives to capture the finest nature scenes possible, frequently taking adventures to extreme levels to capture "the shot." He has experienced hypothermia, been stung by a scorpion, waited for hours in twenty degree (20F/-7C) temperatures, nearly stepped on a rattlesnake, and stood for hours under pelting rain through a lightning storm.
"Some say they lose themselves in one thing or another; however I find myself through photography, losing only the sense of time. I frequently shoot from sunset to sunrise. Photography brings out the passion I feel for both nature and humanity." -- Chad Dutson
