2008 Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year, Gold Medal - Regional category. "This version of the Western landscape is a wilderness experience, and Ortner's aim simply to honor these places in their pristine beauty. A large format helps to convey the scope of the vistas...It is also a format big enough to experience the images viscerally: the textures stone and brush and water running through them are almost palpable."--"Color" Magazine "Throughout the book, Jon Ortner captures the natural beauty of the Southwest in his stunning photographs..."Canyon Wilderness of the Southwest" is truly a visual delight."--"Southwest Art" Magazine "Jon Ortner's oversized, full-page color photos of the Southwest embellishes an album perfect for both photography collections and those documenting the landscapes of the American Southwest.

This title is shot in more than 50 locations across a 130,000-square-mile area, straddling the borders of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The Colorado Plateau is a magnificent wilderness featuring the most breathtaking collection of multicoloured landforms found anywhere on earth. Timeworn canyons, mesas, and vast windswept deserts form a great expanse of exposed rock formations; buttes, towers, spires, hoodoos, arches, windows, fins, domes, bridges, and badlands comprise a surreal world of colour infused wonders. This remarkable assemblage of geological diversity and spectacular beauty attracts millions of visitors every year. The photographer takes the reader to all the famed locations, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Petrified Forest, as well as less-accessible and relatively unexplored tribal lands and slot canyons.
