Southwestern Desert

The last week in August I participated in a photo safari (workshop) in the southwestern desert. It felt like a safari because we had to use 4-wheel drive vehicles to get to our locations. The landscape was the subject, not animals. We went to a few different locations. We used dim lights to illuminate the landscape at night. The first stop was a place called White Pocket in northern Arizona, where we camped after taking photographs past midnight.

On the final day of the workshop we went to a short but scenic slot canyon near Kanab, Utah.

I loved wandering in the slot canyon and finding photo opportunities. My tripod was set up so I just jumped into this shot.

On the way home, I stopped in Zion National Park.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement. I am working on learning the art of transforming my digital creations into print, which is requiring me to bring the quality of my work to a new level. It is a fun and extended learning process.
