Smiling Down on Us All

Navajo Nation
Arizona, USA

My son and I walked through the valley of death for this shot. It took days waiting for the light, but we were not to be disappointed in the end. The heat during the day was unbearable, reaching 112+ degrees. You may have noticed a certain lack of trees for shade here as well. I’d have to say it was ‘Not Fun.’

At the end of day three, the clouds came in at dusk and we just got lucky.

Once back at the studio, the smiley face in the clouds was pointed out to me and all I could think was that God was smiling down on us all, even when we don’t think he is, he is. And, that just made me feel good about it.

See Ya On the Trail!
