My boots were kicking up the dry orange dust in small puffs on the rocky trail into Canyon de Chelly. My eyes were darting about taking in the dramatic red sandstone canyon and making me wish I had a wide angle lens to capture it all in one gulp. I paused in a patch of rare shade cast by a scraggly cedar and saw a brilliant red patch of desert paintbrush. It was alone in the dusty landscape of scrub brush and rock making a bold statement of I am. Smiling with my discovery I shot this photo. I hope you enjoy this desert beauty.
