The Wave, Coyote Buttes, Arizona
The Story of "Symmetry"
This photo is one of my earliest works, and is one of my most successful still to this day. While The Wave in Coyote Buttes, Arizona is now a massive destination for tourists and photographers alike, it was once actually possible to get a permit to visit. While I am grateful to have a few photos I can be proud of from my point-and-shoot days, the photographer in me is desperate to get back with new equipment and improved skill and try again. However, in just 7 short years places like this and Havasaupai Falls have become nearly impossible to visit, leaving me thankful I was able to visit at all.
The Wave is a true work of nature's art and one of the most amazing destinations in the entire US. It amazes me how intricately designed this sandstone sculpture was shaped by nothing but wind and sand and time.
