The lines and shapes of the sand dunes at Eureka Valley at Death Valley National Park make for some good abstract images. The contrast between shadows and highlights also accentuate the abstractness.
It’s all about The Light as far as I am concerned. Flat light is ugly and bright light is straining to the eye. But filtered light or varying light produces dramatic images as seen recently at Zion National Park, Utah.

Today is the first day of autumn, a great time for photography, especially here in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. I conduct personal one-on-one instruction and will get you to those spots to capture images such as below. Colors peak towards the end of October and into the first few weeks of November.

The aspens are changing colors at Grand Canyon National Park and the adjoining Kaibab National Forest in Northern Arizona.
Point Sublime, on the North Rim of The Grand Canyon offers one great vista of the canyon and surrounding area. The storm cell images are those that ravaged Southern Utah on Monday causing death and destruction. As I experienced, these cells roll very fast over the landscape and you better be prepared to take cover. I had my vehicle close by and felt secure. With all the monsoonal moisture we have experienced this summer, the depths of The Grand Canyon have really greened up.
Point Sublime is at the end of an 18-mile one-way(I say one-way because you may not make it back), never easy, rugged road along the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Few venture out to this spectacular viewpoint of the Grand Canyon but the effort is worth the rewards. I was a bit worried taking on this road because it had rained a lot recently which could present issues. I’ve been stuck before! Recently! Of course I started in Utah and passed through Zion National Park on my way to the Kaibab Plateau.
You may have remembered my shots from Point Imperial at The Grand Canyon where layers of fog were rising from the canyon depths. See Foggy Point Imperial. This time I was there for sunset and the light did not disappoint.
This time from my own backyard.
I spent a few days last week, beating the heat of Southern Utah’s desert, at the cool Kaibab National Forest next to Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. The spring rains and current monsoonal thunderstorms produced a colorful wildflower scene. More pics of the Grand Canyon to follow soon!
