The sandstone in this narrow slot canyon in California is painted in varying hues of orange and purple like a royal tapestry curtain hanging from a large, timeless window.
The soft focus on the sides guides the eye forwards and inwards, giving you the feeling of walking through the narrow, sinuous halls of the canyon, enveloped in warm and colorful hues of richly textured sandstone.
The slot canyons here in California are numerous, diverse, unique and gorgeous. Yet they are virtually unknown to most people who focus almost entirely on those found in Utah and Arizona. I have had the incredibly great blessing of being able to live relatively close to the desert, so I've spent the better part of the last 4 years' worth of weekend trips during the cooler months out exploring the Colorado & Mojave Desert regions and finding many new slot canyons to explore and photograph. They have become something of a passion and speciality for me, which is why you see so many of them on my feeds and website.
This image was named after the song of the same name, which sings of God's love as a "Tapestry of Grace" that we are wrapped up in. This Christmas, I like to remember what this incredibly joyous holiday is all about – God's immense and indescribable love in sending his son Jesus to redeem us from our sins and give us hope, love and a future home in Heaven. All we must do is use our faith to believe. We are saved only by His grace.
