I'm back from a five day Photography road trip. I went with my photo shooting friend, Chad. (We tried to get our wives to go but they knew we'd be gone from morning till night wearing our camera's out so they opted to stay home. They were right.) The only purpose was to get some (hopefully) beautiful photos of the amazing geology and a little of the flora and fauna of Southern Utah. I also got just a tiny bit of North West Arizona. In all I took somewhere between 2000 and 2500 exposures. However, there were a lot of duplications, for example, there were a lot of times I bracketed the shots when I wasn't real sure of the best exposure, other times I might zoom in or out just a little. There were many that seemed beautiful to the eye but didn't transfer to the digital image as well as I hoped, but there were some that came out even better than I thought they would. The bottom line is that many of those exposures have been or will be deleted.
There are some photos that I am very happy with that I will be sharing in the future, but I will tell you that it is simply not possible for the camera to capture and convey the beauty or grandeur of the area, not to mention that there's a heck of a difference between seeing it in 3-D instead of the 2-D of the photo. I can't tell you how many times it crossed my mind how lucky I was to be there witnessing the amazing sites.
The photo I'm posting today was taken on our first day out and it was just a couple hundred yards off of a main road heading North out of the city of St. George, Utah, USA. I think it's a good photo of a beautiful area, but it is just that. In the coming weeks and even months I hope to be posting some photos that will really please your eyes. I know I'm pretty excited to share them.
Don't be shy - leave a comment or email me. I love hearing from my visitors!
