- Description: Snow Canyon State Park is a short drive from St. George, Utah. I've always preferred the Petrified Dune area towards the north end of the park. I arrive before sunup, climb to the top of the dunes, and get set up for sunrise. The dune area provides unlimited foreground designs and patterns for deep scenic compositions. A good rain will fill the dune's potholes as shown in this photograph. Summer can be extremely hot. My photo time in the summer is done by 8:30AM. All other seasons are excellent.
- Gear: Fuji S2 Pro/Nikon 12-24 @ 12mm/Gitzo tripod, Arca-Swiss ballhead
