Tag Archives: Tuba City
I may have been away from my blog for a little while, but it doesn’t mean I stopped shooting. I had an awesome day shooting with my friend Darcy Michaelchuk who was visiting from Alberta. I gave him the Arizona tour in a day where we started at 2am and got back in town around 11pm. It was a long day, but we got to spend some quality time at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Lower Antelope Canyon, and this very unique place that we found not far from Tuba City.
I wasn’t quite sure what we were going to find, some as we walked to the rim of the canyon, my mouth just fell open and I uttered some colorful comments which I wont repeat here since this is a family blog . It was a great time shooting at sunset and I made use of my pano head to get this particular image. Make sure to click on the image to view in the light box and let me know what you think!
On a side note, it seems that I made some errors when I was converting the color profile from the first supermoon shot that I did. The colors were completely off and I have taken the time to re-upload the photo. You can check it out here.
Happy Hump Day!
This is all I’ve got to say today. Have a good one!
Wow! Thank you all for your awesome comments yesterday! That photo of the light bridge is definitely one of my favorites and I’m glad you liked it as well.
This is a shot from the beginning of our trip to Monument Valley the other week. It’s funny how road trips change when you become a photographer. The ugly pile of bricks on the side of the road turns into an awesome photo opportunity, the grain elevator that you would normally pass without a second glance suddenly has great leading lines, and the bridge you wouldn’t think twice about becomes a unique shot thats perfect for that wide angle lens you brought.
This is all to say that I look at the world in an entirely different way than I used to. It’s like seeing a hidden image that once seen, can’t be unseen. I think perhaps that this is just how photographers look at the world, there’s just a little more color, a little more beauty and a little more mystery to behold. I want to take this opportunity to challenge all my friends, both photographer and non-photographer, to do your best to see the world in a new way. Who knows, you might just catch something or someone you’ve been overlooking…
Happy hump day everyone!
I’ve begun the long task of sorting through and processing the 1500+ images I took over the weekend. I get almost as excited about processing as I do about taking the images in the first place. I am finally starting to get a better understanding of how to get what I want out of my images so it’s taking less trial and error. I am also able to recognize some of the regular “challenges” that HDR photography creates in the post processing. A big thank you to everyone who has left feedback in the comments, it’s been very useful to help me get better in processing my images.
Here is the first photo from our trip up north this past weekend. The sky was an awesome blue all day dotted with these beautiful white clouds so naturally we couldn’t resist stopping (quite a bit) on the way to Monument Valley. These rocks are aptly named “Elephant Feet”, and are located taken off of Highway 160 near Tuba City. I was using the Tokina 11-16mm which let me get up close and personal with these awesome feet. If you’re every up this way, this place is definitely worth a look. As always, I appreciate your comments and feedback!
