New Life, Fiftymile Canyon, 2015

This image was taken at the transition zone, right near where Fiftymile Canyon dies and Lake Powell begins. The area is full of foul smelling quicksand but even here the natural world has an awe inspiring resiliency. Dead wood is everywhere, but from death comes new life. As Lake levels drop and drought conditions worsen, more and more of the Glen Canyon is coming back to life.
