More from the Rock Factory.
 
This place isn’t the easiest to find but it was well worth visiting. Thanks to my friend Stan Burman for taking us out there. After driving for about 10 miles outside of Page, AZ, then about 20 minutes on some dirt roads with several turns, we arrived at this great place. We arrived during some decent late light but we could see the clouds were moving in, but we had this feeling that they were going to light up at sunset. We could see a gap on the horizon and stayed hopeful. A lot of folks would have left and gone to another location since the clouds were kind of thick but it is great shooting with other optimist! Our patience paid off and we were rewarded with one of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever witnessed. Arriving a hour and a half ahead of time allowed us to scout out several spots and compositions so when the light turned magical, we wasted no time. Typically a sunset like this will last only a minute, but this one seemed to go on for 5 to 10 minutes. Thanks again go out to Stan for his location suggestion, and for his suggestion on the Mexican food we all had afterwards. What a great day!
