  • Story behind the image:

    Red Rock Canyon has so much to offer its visitors. One of my favorite things to do is to go hiking and find petroglyphs and pictographs. There are many great examples of ancient art in Red Rock Canyon and these hands top my list of desert treasures. It took me several tries to capture these hands with just the right amount of light being reflected off of the opposite canyon wall in order to get the red hue of the rocks to stand out.
