Happy Thanksgiving! I’m writing this from snowy Bryce Canyon, Utah. My girlfriend, Jaci, has been out here hanging out and dealing with my photography all week long. We stuffed ourselves at a Thanksgiving buffet, and plan to spend the rest of the day feeling miserably full and watching some football. So far, four inches of snow have fallen up here, and it looks like it’s supposed to continue through the night. It’s forecasted to clear up right around sunrise tomorrow, so I’m hoping things will work out for me photographically. It’s pretty tough shooting at such a grand place as this with little to no visibility.
Here are some shots from a few nights ago at a place called Paria, in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. I loved the purple hues in the badlands, and I hope to go back and catch another sunset out there. The sky was filled with dark clouds, with only a sliver of clear sky on the western horizon. I was hoping for magnificent colors in the sky, but was treated to these equally rewarding conditions.
