"Tranquil Tides" By Robert Park

Via Flickr:
Tranquil Tides” The scenic beauty of the seastacks offshore and headlands onshore make your stroll down the sand particularly memorable at Canon Beach . Fly a kite, watch the sea creatures in the tidepools, or take in a sunset on the famous Haystack Rocks. Relaxing on the beach is part of the Cannon Beach experience. The area is protected as part of the
"Tranquil Tides"
Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge as well as a designated National Wilderness Area. I had envisioned a spectacular sunset on the black sand beaches however when I saw the reflections in the wet sand as the waves receded I was compelled by this most peaceful scene. Waiting for just the right moment when the receding tide and reflection was perfect I exposed my film and knew I had captured something monumental. Located in Oregon. © Robert Park

“White House Ruins” The White House Ruins are located within protected Navajo land and you must be accompanied by a guide to explore the area. The ruins sit in harmony within the desert varnish of the sheer faced cliff walls of the canyon, giving the ancient structure a sense of drama and timeless elegance.

Mystic Portal Location Chaco Culture, New Mexico The center of an ancient worldChaco Canyon was an important Anasazi (ancient Native American) cultural center from about 900 through 1130 AD. It is a place that is to be sensed as much as seen. Of all the ancient, sacred sites I visited in the Southwest, this is the one that speaks to me like no other. No language doesn't exist that can adequately describe the experience you must experience your self. © RobertPark

"Eternity"Grand Canyon National Park By Robert Park

Via Flickr:
Toroweap Point is a truly remote spot of the Grand Canyon located at the end of a 60 mile dirt road. Once there you can camp just a few hundred feet from the sheer cliffs of the Grand Canyon within an established campsite. This image was created one evening, while camping in solitude at Toroweap. The sun was cresting the horizon at sunset while the clouds began to clear—dramatic
beams of light cascaded down the canyon—allowing a beautiful starburst to be created in the camera lens. Toroweap Point drops almost 3,000 feet straight down to the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, offering breath-taking views and a sense of exhilaration that is unmatched anywhere else in the canyon.
Location: Toroweap Point on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
