On The Road To the Grand Canyon

A recent drive to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim revealed some sights not normally associated with The Grand Canyon. Like wildlife, Aspens and Autumn Colors.

And of course, the Grand Canyon itself!


Blurred Aspens

Using In-Camera techniques, I photographed these past-peak color aspens while moving the camera slightly to achieve a blurred, ethereal look.

 


Fall Colors Have Arrived

At the Kaibab National Forest, adjacent to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim.  At an elevation between eight to 9,000 feet, Autumn arrives early.  The Aspens were just beginning to change colors and should be at full color around the first of October. But small pockets couldn’t wait.

Cedar Canyon Autumn

Cedar Canyon is between Cedar City and Cedar Breaks National Monument in Southern Utah. It is marked by Ponderosa Pines, Aspens and sandstone cliffs.  Autumn is a special time to visit at or past peak color.

Peak Color At Kaibab National Forest

This national forest in Northern Arizona straddles the Grand Canyon. There would be very little color if  the Aspens didn’t flourish here.

Autumn Colors Explode In Northern Arizona

The North Rim of The Grand Canyon and surrounding Kaibab National Forest yielded some intense fall colors this past week.  The aspens were on fire at around the 9,ooo foot altitude.

Zion Canyon Autumn- Volume 1, Peak Color

This is the first post of three capturing the fall color season at Zion National Park, Utah. Peak colors arrived a few weeks later than normal and was quite beautiful. While shooting the fall foliage, I noticed a number of geological wonders I had not noticed before. Those images will appear in the next post.

More Autumn Pics From Southern Utah

The fall foliage is past its peak in the upper elevations in Southern Utah. Dixie National Forest had spots of bright colors on Thursday but nearby,  the same aspen trees were leaveless.  The colors are now migrating down towards Zion National Park where it will reach peak color with its maples, Gambel Oaks, and cottonwoods in the next week or two. The pics below are from Dixie National Forest and north of Kolob Reservoir in the high country out towards Cedar Breaks and east of Cedar City. These images are available as prints including framed canvas at What’s New At Dawn2Dawn Photography
