Jeff Pedersen talks Landscape Photography at White Pockets & why you should NOT go there | Ep 79

White Pockets is a unique area of windswept sandstone near Kanab, UT. The sandstone there is not the typical red rock found in most of the Colorado Plateau – it’s not only white, but also yellow, orange, and even purple in places. And there’s Brainrock! It’s an amazingly interesting place for photographers. Jeff finds White Pocket to be more interesting than even another near-by location, The Wave. And White Pocket has many more locations to shoot than The Wave. The roads that access White...

Needing a March Milky Way and some good stories for the podcast, we drive all-night to the Butte in Hanksville, Utah that Royce Bair told us about.
