Chasing Hope

Chasing Promise, Highway 316, Goosenecks State Park, Utah, United States of America

The road takes me through
A deepening darkness
Toward a near horizon
Of fantastical colour
Receding with the sun

I depress the accelerator
Hoping at least to keep pace
But wishing to my core
That someday
I will catch up

Chasing Promise
Highway 316
Goosenecks State Park

The image inspired a poem about sunsets. However, the photograph was taken in the pre-dawn, on my way up to Moki Dugway where I photographed the sunrise.
