My sincere thanks to Capture My Arizona for the Editors' Choice Award, Arizona Scenic Shots Contest. This image of the iconic Wave is from one of my favorite places on the Earth: North Coyote Buttes at Vermilion Cliffs National Monument - Paria Plateau Wilderness Area. Situated on the Arizona-Utah border, this remote area is a true geological wonderland.

We've made several trips to this location, most recently to South Coyote Buttes (Cottonwood Cove) and Grand Staircase - Escalante, Utah, this past February.  Friends and I have been so moved by the area that we created a self-published book, Windswept Landscape: Images from the Arizona-Utah Border.  

My sincere thanks to fellow travelers Tom Gendron and Steve Stilwell for this book collaboration and such memorable times at Vermilion Cliffs.   

Thanks also to friends and supporters at Capture My Arizona.
