Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Darryl Lloyd

A threatening sky made my two hiking companions quicken their pace while leaving The Wave. The sun came out from behind the clouds, so I dropped back and had only a moment to compose this parting shot of one of the most amazing places in the world.

Location: The Wave, Vermillion Cliffs National Monument, Arizona, U.S.A.
