Nature’s geologic upheaval provides its own layering here, and I use it to layer my view of the massive bluffs along the Colorado River that define the borders of Arches National Park. There are three layers that give a sense of depth perception to this image. The prime layer fills most of the frame – a striking jumble of slabs piled upon each other by the movement of glaciers long before there was a place called Utah. The distant bluffs tower above them, adding the brightest layer of color to the image. Textured clouds provide the final layer, capping the image.
