Where Light and Rock Meet

We spent two days in Lower Antelope slot canyon (about 3 hrs. each day). This one is less traveled and a little quieter than Upper Antelope slot because all of the tours from Page go to upper. You can drive right to this one and have guided or unguided walk throughs. Middle of the day is the best time and even then the lighting is subdued so bring a tripod! It's dusty down in the slots so try to minimize lens changes or better yet take two bodies with the lens you need and don't change (wide angle is usually best. I can't imagine needing much more than 100mm).

Run like the Wind

Three Navajo horses ran across our path while touring Monument Valley. I was quick enough to get my camera but not quick enough to change from aperture priority f22 and hence the slow shutter, but I don't think it would have been as dynamic if I had time to plan the shot. Just a lot of luck!

Delicate Sunset

Waited until dark to catch the sunset color at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah. The 1.3 mile hike down required my camera CCD cleaning flash light which I happened to have in my camera bag.
