“For your sake, I hurry over land and water:
For your sake, I cross the desert and split the mountain in two,
And turn my face from all things,
Until the time I reach the place
Where I am alone with You.”

-Al Hallaj

I’ve always been inspired by the dramatic landscapes of the west.  Never-ending scenes appear barren but are somehow vibrant and teeming with color.  Every sunset and sunrise in the west is like a bright golden gift, an ever-changing oil painting. Hues of orange, blue, and purple are reflected from the rolling hills of sand creating a few minutes of surreal magic.

If you search online you’ll see that there are sand-dunes in nearly every western state of the USA.  It’s surprising to find them so far from the coast, instead scattered under mountains and minutes from forests and cities. Montana, Colorado, Wyoming and Utah each have their own sand dunes – and as you’ll see – they make beautiful locations for photography!

Later this month, Seth & Drea will be celebrating their 1st anniversary. Seth has a comedic spirit and an intelligent, calculating mind. Drea is a gorgeous, fun-loving creative, and together these two are a riot.  They support each other and built each other up with their words, in ways that are generous and kind.
