“White Pocket”

White Pocket, in Utah, is a beautiful geological area.  

“…When exploring White Pocket you’ll encounter a broad bed of white stone arranged in geodesic hexagons, pentagons and squares. The area has been described as a giant turtle shell, a village of igloos, a petrified cloud, and biscuits in a Dutch oven — those descriptions are all accurate metaphors.  The various shades of red, orange and pink rocks are due to the oxidation of hematite within the sandstone while the minerals, limonite and goethite, produced the yellows and browns.”  ~ Steven Law  

We did any overnight excursion at White Pocket – camped in tents and photographed sunset, the Milky  Way and sunrise.  To get to the location it was another two hour four-wheel drive by juniper trees, up and down sandy hills, and between ancient sandstone monoliths.   All I can say is … Wow!  This was quite the experience into a magical, unique landscape.  I have never witnessed anything like this visual in my lifetime.

Here is an” intimate look” at White Pocket

photographed with my macro lens. 

Notice the texture, patterns, striations, colors

and somewhat fragile appearance.
