[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White Pocket is a relatively unknown and extraordinary spot on the remote Paria Plateau. While only accessible through miles of deep sand with a four-wheel drive, seeing this unbelievable and extremely unique formation is well worth the trip.
The area of White Pocket on the Paria Plateau in Northern Arizona is very impressive indeed!
The impressive White Pocket will fill the senses beyond imagination! The drive to the swirling, twisted, multicolored natural artwork is an adventure in its own right, and the exploration by foot is endless.. This area has colors, shapes and textures that are hard to beat, but it is an extremely fragile environment and the utmost care should be taken to preserve this place !

Hi Albert,
That's medicine for a desert lover like I am.
I love that picture and also that region Arizona and Utah!
The rock looks nearly like “The Wave” or lower and upper Antelope canyon.
Great! Thanks for sharing it here!

Hi Albert.
Landscapes are my weak point (may be because of lack of nice scenes). Yours are amazing in every aspect. Fantastic beautifulness of the shapes and colours. Perfect sharpness across a frame, brilliant POV and composition. Bravo. Great work.

Hi MF Albert,

Just gorgeous! The stratifications are nicely captured and the wide angle view is perfect for this type of shot. Great geoformations indeed.
TFS and have a nice Sunday night and new week MF!
