About the Book
Rock Art is all about the symphony of colors and shapes carved by nature in the Southwestern United States. Many colorful formations can be found in easy accessible areas such as the Valley of Fire State Park near Las Vegas or at National Parks such as Zion and Bryce Canyon in Utah. There are many other formations that are well known, documented and visited but at the same time aren’t part of the mass tourism circuit.
Exploration was centered on the Paria River and includes Hoodoos, White Pocket area and The Wave in the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs National Monument, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, Cottonwood Wash Road from Big Water to Bryce Canyon.

Photography has been a hobby for me since 1982 when I shot my first film image with a reflex camera. As an avid electrical engineer, fascinated with technology and innovation, conversion to digital photography was an easy and welcome transition that occurred in the year 2000. After a trip to Baja California in 2005 to watch the gray whale migration, travel and photography became an integral part of my life. I have visited over thirty-five countries -- camera in hand -- many of them not in the main tourist circuit among them Greenland, Kyrgyzstan and Ghana to name a few. My main photographic interest centers on wildlife and landscapes. One of my photographs earned an award from the World Wildlife Fund.
