Arizona/Utah Border, USA

'The Wave' is a unique rock formation in the Coyote Buttes area of the "Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness", which, to you and me is a rocky desert on the border of Arizona and Utah. The wave is the jewel, seen at the end of one of the best day hikes in SW USA. What makes it even more exciting is the fact that you have to win one of 10 day permits via a lottery to even be allowed to hike the 6-7 miles of 35c desert. We were lucky on our second attempt and got the place to ourselves for 2 whole hours...

Lovely light and composition. This is the first time in images of this place that I have seen a person included, which gives a good idea of the scale.
