White Pocket, Arizona

Arizona must have inspired Dr. Seuss. The rock formations are a sort of confectioner’s design. It’s as if — millennia ago — a giant-sized trow raked across soft red earth with cream cheese. I call White Pocket the plasterwork of the gods. This off-the-beaten-path spot was one of many I visited in May 2016.

Watch my travel film below.

    I totally agree that Arizona must have been Dr. Seuss’ inspiration! I read a lot of Dr. Seuss to my son and it looks exactly like this! My husband went to school in AZ so he always talks about us doing a road trip there. I still haven’t seen the Grand Canyon!

    Beautiful Jessica, as always!
    I have the feeling, your impressions even get from time to time more amazing. I love your video, it is so relaxing and nice to look at. These fantastic colors, the calm sequences and also these closeups of these tadpoles… our earth is so beautiful and that’s why I love to look at such great and unique travel blogs like yours, that show with a very own signature all the inherent natural beauty. P.S. Nice animation of your logo in the video 🙂

    I am so gutted I didn’t have time to do Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe bend when I was in Arizona. Next time though, I won’t be missing it. It looks so beautiful and I can’t wait to get there and visit 🙂

    Stunning video, showing the beauty of Arizona. I love the multicolored rock formations, I’d love to photograph these and increase the saturation. The reflection photograph at the top is incredible!

    Still need to visit Arizona and all of its National Parks. Your travel video was absolutely stunning! Loved the cinematography, can’t believe it was shot on the Sony a7s!

    Your video is an absolute feast for the eyes! And I love the pic at Horseshoe Bend. I’ve been wanting to visit Antelope Canyon for years. I really need to make it happen to see it in person.

      You’re welcome, Anete. The world is too beautiful not to capture.

    Beautiful video! Looks like a movie scene with nice sound effects. Red rocks with white clouds looks so perfect in your video with circular motion photography.

    Fascinating film. The surreal landscapes of Arizona have been captured with loving care. The region has a kind of wild beauty which has been captured beautifully.
