Rift in the Clouds


One of the most spectacular views I've ever had, as a surprise morning fog (likely caused by freezing temps and a nearby river) enveloped the swell I was flying over as the sun dawned upon the desert landscape. These swells, also called reefs, are geologic wonderlands and are found in full view stretching for miles across several Utah and Arizona locations. Photo © copyright by Marc Adamus.
