False Kiva is a human-made stone circle of unknown origin in a cave in a remote area of the Canyonlands National Park, which is located in U.S. state of Utah. It requires some hiking knowledge or special directions to find.

It has become a popular spot for photographers capturing the Southwest, offering a unique frame for the dramatic thunderstorms or clear skies beyond.

The hike was about 2 miles along jagged rocks and very steep cliffs. I am not very fond of heights so it got a little scary at times and I just told myself to only look at my feet lol. The peaceful view from the alcove made it all worth it.

Wow... stunning depth of field, detail and composition. I wish I had what it takes to do this hike - I love Canyonlands - but this photo is just perfect. I assume focus stacking...?
