Sunset at Zion

You don’t have to have the sun in the photo to get good sunset images. The light from the setting sun provides some vibrant colors.

Antelope Canyon. Upper or Lower? From Lower Antelope Canyon

If you can only do one of these, I would do Lower Antelope Canyon.  Why?

Antelope Canyon is an amazing slot canyon near Page Arizona on Navajo Tribal Land. During the off season, the people at Lower Antelope Canyon will let me go on my own for 2 hours. It’s called the photographers permit. It’s about $35.  The Lower is about a mile long and you can walk to the entrance in a minute. At the Upper, you have to be driven out to the trailhead and be guided through the canyon which is only a 1/2 mile at most.

These images and more can be purchased as prints or downloadable files at dawn2dawn photography

Angels’s Landing Anyone?

Reblog from about 4 years ago.

When visitors to Zion National Park ask me what hike they should try, I tell them if they aren’t afraid of heights and adventure, you must conquer the diabolical Angel’s Landing.  I’ve completed it 3 times but see no reason to risk my life again. The peak was named by a Methodist clergyman, Frederick Vining Fisher, who thought that ‘only an angel could land on it’ although I made it.

Angel's_4026 Your lifeline, the chains!

Angel's_4011 No chains here.

Image The chains offer a safety net because to the right is a 1488 foot drop to the canyon floor. That shuttle bus below looks awfully small.

The National Park Service offers plenty of warnings.



It’s a 2 1/2 mile climb from the…

White Pocket Is Simply Amazing. First Of 3 Posts.

I’ve been out there 4 or 5 times but the light approaching sunset was almost-perfect this time.  White Pocket is an area in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Northern Arizona. It’s a difficult drive on sandy roads to get there, but well worth the struggle.  One vehicle that only had 2-wheel drive got stuck in the sand and was only rescued when a Jeep Wrangler with a winch showed up and saved this couple a large towing bill.

Surreal Autumn Images

These are photographs taken this past week at Zion National Park, Utah. Utilizing in-camera techniques by moving the camera slightly during a slow exposure, you get a distorted image, but not quite a Monet.







Some More Fall Colors

The colors are disappearing fast at Zion National Park.  Lack of rain here(rained once in last 2 months) has muted the colors.
