"Leave Me Alone" is from the series "Bryce Canyon National Park: Between a Rock and a Hard Place", taken during the Summer of 2017 while hiking through the park with my two sons.

The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon which, despite its name, is not a canyon but a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks.

Bryce Canyon National Park is a hostile environment peppered with stark trees clinging on and in-between sharp jagged rocks. Engulfed by a harsh landscape where red sands rise to meet a hazy red sky, it is easy to marvel at the way life seems to find a way to cling onto the cliff of reality despite nature’s darkest intentions. At times, I too feel like I am hanging on for my life as I navigate through the demands society weighs upon women’s shoulders. With household expectations to cook, clean, take care of the children, and somehow still earn a living, I too must persevere and find my foothold between a rock and a hard place.
