Rain Panel

Rain Panel

When I first visited this Barrier Canyon Style pictograph panel last year the light and shadows were pretty bad, so I didn’t end up with any decent photos. This time I made sure to stick around in the late afternoon for a better shot in the warm light.

Feet Panel

Feet Panel

Warm sunset light illuminates a petroglyph panel full of different kinds of footprints. Most of them appear to be sandal prints, although there is a bare footprint all the way on the far right side of the panel. There’s even concentric circles and zoomorphs thrown in for good measure.

A fun little pictograph that I visited on a hike during a snowstorm in the San Rafael Swell. Luckily it was under a large overhang where I could get out of the snow and take a few photos.

Through the Tree

Through the Tree

This is one of my all-time favorite pictograph panels, and one of the reasons I originally became interested in rock art in the first place. When I took this photo I actually stuck my camera into a nearby tree to frame the pictographs with the out-of-focus branches. It took me a few tries to get something that I liked since I couldn’t use the viewfinder! I’m happy with the result 🙂

I’ve posted a photo of the Ascending Sheep panel before, but I was going through some of my photos from last year and came across this one that I hadn’t touched. I liked they way it was composed so I processed it and decided to post it up here. I’m glad this one didn’t get lost on my hard drive never to be seen again!
