Bryce Canyon Sunset

March 26, 2009

Hey everybody,

Here’s yet another shot from my travels during this fall/winter. I had intended to get to Kodachrome Basin for this sunset, but I was running late. I decided I’d try my luck at Bryce Canyon, knowing that it was much better for sunrise shooting. I think I made out well for the relatively clear conditions. I really love the post-sunset “glow” that is always present in the Southwestern desert. I miss it!

I made it to Moab!

December 13, 2008

Hi everybody,

Due to the fact that precipitation is forecasted over each of the next eight days, I’ve chosen to cut my time in Escalante and Capitol Reef short. I figure that the rain, snow, and ice will make many of the dirt backroads of those areas impassable, and well, that’s where a lot of the good stuff is located. Theres a lot of awesome places to shoot like that here in Moab as well, but there are also more paved roads, thanks to the National Parks in the area.

Over the last few days, I’ve made my way across the state, shooting at Bryce Canyon, Cottonwood Canyon, Devil’s Garden, slots in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Mon., and Cathedral Valley. I only had one day of sunshine when I was in Escalante. I was being ambitious, and had hoped to get to Spooky Gulch, Peek-A-Boo canyon, and Zebra slot all on the same day. I abandoned that plan once I realized I spent 5 hours inside of Spooky. Anyway, here are some shots from Bryce Canyon and Spooky Gulch.

Heading out to the Buttes

November 30, 2008

Hey everybody,

I don’t have a whole lot to say this time. I’ve been photographing around Page, AZ and Kanab, UT for the past few days. I got together with/met photographers John Mumaw and George Stocking yesterday to photograph Eggshell Arch (AKA Thanksgiving Arch.) Much to our dismay, we got kicked out… I’m just going to leave it at that. So, we left that area and headed back towards Page, choosing to camp up at Stud Horse Point. We photographed at sunrise, and then I left in a hurry to go photograph some slot canyons.

In the afternoon I ventured out to Nipple Bench and Alstrom Point on the north coast of Lake Powell this afternoon. Here are some shots from the outing. The first one is from the badlands on Nipple Bench, and the next three are from Alstrom Point.

I’ll be heading off tomorrow for Coyote Buttes North, Coyote Buttes South, and the White Pocket. I’ll be back to internet land on the 4th or 5th.
