Capturing the music of the slot canyons of the Southwest.
“The mysterious ‘slot’ canyons of the Southwest,” says Beth Kingsley Hawkins, “are cave-like formations with narrow openings to the sky above. When the sun is highest overhead, the light illuminates the mica in the sandstone, creating a glow of rainbow colors inside. When that happens, this ancient dance of stone and water becomes the shape and flow and colors of music. This is a little bit of heaven for me as a music psychotherapist. I became a nature photographer as a result of experiencing the wonder there.”
Hawkins used her slot canyon images to illustrate the soul’s journey for lay sermons on the theme of “Valuing the Quest: A UU Core Value” at the Sedona and Prescott, Arizona, UU Fellowships. See more of Hawkins’s work at hummerlady.com.
