So after months of research and planning I am finally on the road to Utah today. The plan is to be on the road by 3am today and make it to Lake Powell around sunrise before crossing over into Utah. I have a full 5 days of shooting before I make my way back home on Monday so I will not be able to update my blog during that time. You can however follow me and Google+ and Facebook where I will be posting updates whenever chance and signal allow. Hope you have a great week and I will see you soon!
One more shot of the epic morning clouds from the Valley of Fire State Park. Is it me, or does the rock in the foreground look a little bit like Jabba the Hut?
This one’s from my favorite canyon named Waterholes which is located in Page, Arizona. I had the opportunity to do the first half of the canyon when I was there in July. We were unable to go through the entire canyon because we did not have the necessary gear for the 400′ rappel at the end. I hope to finish this canyon sometime soon.
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?
This first image is the result of manual blending and brightness/contrast/saturation adjustments in Photoshop:
This second image is the result of Tone-Mapping in Photmatix followed by slight brightness adjustment in Photoshop and finished with Topaz Adjust:
