UT Posted in Utah September 24, 2015 by Catherine Rees 15 Photos Taken in Utah that You Won’t Believe are Real Sometimes, Utah’s beauty is so surreal that it’s hard to believe. These 15 photos are all interesting and strange in their own way. 1) Red Canyon Tunnel Diana Robinson/flickr The combination of a thousand stars, nature’s red rock and a man-made machine are stunning. 2) Joseph Smith Memorial Building Joe Jiang/flickr This photographer perfectly captured the reflection of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Notice the shadow of the Salt Lake Temple, too. 3) Canyonlands National Park Dave Wilson/flickr This photo looks like transparent layers placed onto a page. 4) Lake Powell Wolfgang Staudt/flickr The clouds in this photo look like they’re straight from a time-lapse video. 5) Monument Valley Wolfgang Staudt/flickr The "chosen" rock? 6) Moab Scott Ingram/flickr It must feel surreal to drive a train through this man-made cut in the mountain. 7) Goblin Valley Bill Gracey/flickr It looks like the world is on fire. 8) Green River Overlook Dixie Lawrence/flickr It’s hard to believe the vastness of this sweeping vista. 9) Needles Overlook at Canyonlands Alex Proimos/flickr At first glimpse, it seems really odd to see a chain-link fence installed on the side of the mountain. 10) Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Steve Corey on and off/flickr These formations look like extra-terrestrial mushrooms poking out of the ground. 11) Monument Valley Chao Yen/flickr The Milky Way looks more like a painting than a photograph. 12) Arches National Park Paolo Rosa/flickr After a storm, the juxtaposition of the bright orange rock against the dull grey clouds is other-worldly. 13) Utah Field JC Essentials ;)/flickr This is what Utah would look like after an apocalypse. 14) Twitchell Canyon Fire NASA’S Marshall Flight Space Center The Twitchell Canyon fire was started by lightning on July 20, 2010 burned 33,071 acres. This photo was taken by the International Space Station. 15) Spanish Fork Thomas Hawk/flickr The photographer titled this photo, “It’s natural to be afraid.” I didn’t think it looked scary until I read the title, but now it strikes me as evil...
