The photographer: Jay Hansell of Auburn

Behind the lens: One of the most spectacular parks in southern Utah is Canyonlands National Park. For photographers who get up early and drive up to Island in the Sky from Moab, the awaiting picture is worth 10 times 1,000 words. The top arch is lit by the morning sun reflecting off the wall below. In the distance is Washer Woman rock. Far below, winding its way through the Utah desert, is the Colorado River. My wife and I have been up to Island in the Sky several times, both at sunrise and sunset. It is never the same, it is magic; the views always take our breath away.
