Almost Spring, Canon de Chelly—Sliding House Overlook, 36 x 66.

Here is the canyon on a bright, dry day in early spring just before
the trees leaf out. The sun is high with its light spread about the
sky by thin cirrus clouds so that the walls and shadows of the rocks
are filled with daylight. This least dramatic or romantic season and
light show the true splendor of these unique walls of sandstone
streaked with iron and manganese oxides. They need no cosmetic
enhancement of sunset, snow or summer green to appear truly beautiful.
