Dramatic shots produced from monsoonal storms racing past Marble Canyon, just north of the Grand Canyon.
Well, almost, it did a little this past Friday. Death Valley only receives 2 inches per year, mostly in the winter. In a lot of locations in this world, you can receive 2 inches of rain in less than an hour. The storm clouds gave Death Valley National Park a look I normally don’t see. The clouds and filtered sunlight produced some memorable images.
Storm after storm passed by my secluded campsite in the Kaibab National Forest. This site overlooks Marble Canyon and the area north of the Grand Canyon. These images and more are available as prints or downloadable files for personal use at Dawn2Dawn Photography
I spent a couple of days last week traveling in Northern Arizona around the Vermilion Cliffs and Marble Canyon areas. Once again, I was amazed by the Arizona Skies as some scattered storm systems permeated the landscape. I just couldn’t keep my camera down so I put together a slide show of the Arizona Skies along with a song by The Orb called Little Fluffy Clouds. The music fits as this hippie chic voices over how she feels about the Arizona Skies. Music can be purchased at iTunes If you don’t want to hear the music and view the pics at your own pace, Click here.

Persistent rains and thunderstorms continue to invade Southern Utah and Zion National Park. Flash flooding remains a threat as Pacific storms migrate from Southern California. Which of course can provide some dramatic photos.
More pics from the Grand Canyon area.
Passing thunderstorms along the North Rim of The Grand Canyon have big potential for producing memorable shots. Just pick a spot or two with great vantage points and allow the photos to develop in front of you. Last week I camped along the eastern side of the North Rim and just watched all day long, storms and clouds form and pass. Watch for the filtered sunlight and how it transforms the landscape below. And I used my zoom lens on a tripod to get in tighter.
A nice thunderstorm rolled through Zion Country the other day before sunset, setting up some nice light.
Images from the land of hoodoos, teepees, red rock, Ponderosa Pines, and glorious clouds!
Spent a few days in the Lake Powell area where the leftovers from that California storm made an appearance. I was able to score a permit for North Coyote Buttes for Monday, home of The Wave. Those pics to come soon.
