Dust Storm – Monument Valley – Photography by Pat Kofahl

Dust Storm – Mitten Butes by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

Arizona is actually pretty famous for dust storms. We even borrowed the Arab term "haboob," because they're so similar to what's often seen in the Saharan and Arabian desert. Triggered by monsoon thunderstorms, these massive walls of dust often reach heights of 10,000 feet, engulfing and obscuring everything in their path.

Palazzo Publico & Torre del Mangia – Siena by Pat Kofahl

Palazzo Publico – Siena by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

The outside of the structure is an example of Italian medieval architecture with Gothic influences. The lower story is stone; the upper crenelatted stories are made of brick. The facade of the palace is curved slightly inwards (concave) to reflect the outwards curve (convex) of the Piazza del Campo, Siena's central square of which the Palace is the focal point. The campanile or bell tower, Torre del Mangia, was built between 1325 and 1344. This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.

Clouds – Monument Valley – by Pat Kofahl

Clouds – Monument Valley by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

The view from Hunts Mesa is the quintessential vision of the West: vistas as far as the eye can see, human habitation almost an afterthought, and dwarfed by the enormity of the landscape. Arroyos, canyons, mesas, draws, washes, tanks. A place so alien that it even requires its own language to describe it. A land with its own rules and laws, completely impersonal, and universally enforced, without rancor or a second thought.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.

Silent Sunrise – Grand Canyon by Pat Kofahl

Silent Sunrise – Grand Canyon by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

A bitterly cold winter morning, but with amazing visibility. The crunch of snow as your boots sink into the new fallen snow while you search for the perfect perspective, the perfect frame. The legs of the tripod disappear into the blanket of white. Steam pours out of your mouth and nose as you fumble with the tripod and the controls of your camera. you check your settings and composition – all good to go. Finally, you smile as you lift the cable release and prepare to squeeze – gently, silently, almost reverently, because you know that there's no place on earth you'd rather be.

(3852m). With 194 named mountain ranges, the state is hardly flat.

Clearing Storm – Cimarron Ridge, Colorado by Pat Kofahl

Clearing Storm – Cimarron Ridge by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

Here near Cimarron ridge in the high country of Colorado, Mother Nature shows off her fall colors, which can easily be swept away at moment's notice by an early winter storm, high winds or hail. I's truly a precious window to catch early morning light as a storm clears and the colors seem to dance across the landscape.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.

First Snowfall at Owl Creek – Photography by Pat Kofahl

First Snowfall at Owl Creek, Colorado by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

First snowfall in the high country of Colorado heralds the coming of winter as the blanket of gold inevitably changes to white.

And so the wheel turns...This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass. Prices start at $49.00!
