Canon EF15mm, f22, 1/2000, ISO1600 White Pocket is a notoriously hard to reach patch of sandstone hidden in the desert of Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona. An area of "cauliflower rock" can be found above red sandstone making the area look as if it were covered in icing sugar. Stone layers in some areas are completely twisted like an enormous marble cake. If you look closely near the right side about halfway down, you'll find our little Gabby exploring. I didn't realize she was in the photo until I was editing it a short while ago. She can give you a sense of scale to the size of the area.
