I captured this image close to the Utah/Arizona border and Lake Powell. I was amazed at the colors of the ground, rocks and cliff faces as I drove through the area. I imagined it as how Mars may look.
I liked how the sun breaking through the clouds lit up the far away rock formation. The word 'Oz' came to mind as I reviewed the shot in post. As the mythical Oz is surrounded by Deadly Deserts, the name stuck.

Thanks for the consideration,
