A closer view of part of Red Rock Canyon. A light rain really caused the deep red color of the rock to come through, especially once I used my polarizer to cut down on reflections. The inclement weather also provided another advantage: no people to get in my photos!
One of the problems associated with the canyon can also be seen in this image. If you look closely you'll see that the red rock is covered with broken bits of stone and sand. The rock is actually quite fragile and breaks easily. Despite requests to the contrary, people always walk on the rock, and every footprint damages it just a little more. If it doesn't stop, one day there will be no more Red Rock Canyon, at least not the way you see it here.
