Utah Landscapes I by Jeff Burton
Sunset on Park Avenue by Jeff Burton. The sun lights up the sky with a golden orange light over Park Avenue in Arches National Park outside Moab Utah. The Park Avenue Trail is seen extending from the bottom of the image to the gap in the rock walls. The rock wall formations tower above the viewer of either side of the trail and the red sandstone is enhanced by the orange light reflecting from the clouds in the sky.
Moonrise over North Window Arch by Jeff Burton represents the moon rising over the North Window Arch just after sunset in Arches National Park outside Moab, Utah. The deep blue color of the sky after sunset casts a faint glow on the landscape below while the bright moon helps guide the remaining hikers to their final destinations.
Delicate Arch II by Jeff Burton. Delicate Arch is a 65-foot (20 m) tall freestanding natural arch located in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. It is the most widely-recognized landmark in Arches National Park and is depicted on Utah license plates and on a postage stamp commemorating Utah’s centennial anniversary of statehood in 1996.
Bryce Canyon II by Jeff Burton captures the morning sun peaking over the horizon and filling Bryce canyon. The morning light illuminates the hoodoos accentuating the many orange and white colors and emphasizing the wonderful texture of the formations.
Canyon Overlook by Jeff Burton captures the majestic view of lower Zion Canyon from above Pine Creek at a viewpoint above The Great Arch. The viewpoint is at the end of a mile-long hike along the Canyon Overlook Trail. From this viewpoint one can see Bridge Mountain (the peak on the left side of the canyon), the East Temple (the rock formation on the right), Mount Spry (just beyond the East Temple formation) and the West Temple (beyond Bridge Mountain) and other landmarks of Zion National Park.
Virgin River by Jeff Burton captures the sunset over the Virgin River in Zion National Park. The quickly flowing water travels through the rocky canyon floor creating beautiful stone outcroppings and sandstone features. The setting sun creates dramatic shadows that reveal the intricate textures of the canyon floor.

Very Sexy: Karlie and Doutzen for Victoria’s Secret
Victoria’s Secret can easily be charged with accusations of doing a lot of the same, same but the formula clearly nets them millions of profits, so why change it? The latest campaign for the “Very Sexy” push-up bra (aren’t they all?) is very sexy indeed, filled with night time city lights in bokeh form, Doutzen Kroes’ Angel waves, and Karlie Kloss’ infuriating combination of rock hard abs and a non-existent ass. — by Tania Braukämper
