I’ve had to take a little break from blogging the last several days because I’ve been so busy with work. I am happy to announce that I am back in action however. This past weekend I had the opportunity to act as photographer on a canyoneering trip with several Boy Scouts. It was a really fun trip and I was able to take some nice pictures. I will post of a few of them in the upcoming days.
So what’s next on the agenda you ask? I have a quick weekend trip planned to Sedona this week where I will be looking to get some killer fall foliage shots. Next week on Wednesday I’m leaving to spend 6 days in Southern Utah in search of arches, slot canyons, natural bridges and with a little luck, some great Milky Way shots. All of this followed up with a possible trip to Monument Valley and Arches National Park during Thanksgiving weekend if the weather (snows) cooperates. This next month is going to be very exciting so keep checking back!
Today’s image is another from the Pinnacles at Cape Woolamai taken on Phillip Island Australia. This place remains one of my favorite places that I’ve photographed so far. I’ve been playing around with some different processing styles and today, I wanted to ask your opinions of the processing on this image. Which do you like better?
