Gordon Smith, Utah Photographer -- hiking in the desert and sandstone
While wandering around the West Clark bench, I found a unique rock formation. The skies were not particularly good for a dramatic shot but I thought this formation was interesting nonetheless. I decided it might make a good environmental self-portrait. The self-portrait is something most artists do at one point or another. Some people are very famous for doing several self-portraits. It is a way to experiment artistically. In this case, there was not much to experiment with. My legs were tired after hiking about 10 miles. I set up my camera and stood next to this wonderful formation and a Gordon Smith self-portrait was born.
