BBQ-Nut - I have almost the same shot of that Mitten.
Ronstar - Nice foreground fence at Sedona, was the Antelope Canyon upper or lower?, for the John Wayne impersonation.


This one is Bright Angel Point, North Rim

Nice north rim shot! The Antelope Canyon shot was in the lower canyon. The guide tosses sand up in the air to create dust for photographers to shoot. Not a good environment for cameras. My John Wayne moment was scary- there's a 100' cliff about 5' in front of the horse.

I'll have to get to lower Antelope someday. I was only in upper.

100' cliffs are kid stuff. I'm into 3000' cliffs myself.

By coincidence, Photofocus recommended some gift ideas and one of them was a photo workshop company based in Arizona.

Their prices for workshops in AZ and the Southwest are kind of ridiculous though, like $500 a day:

Wow, I like the Grand Canyon shots shared here.


We actually did a 'drive by' of the Grand Canyon on the way to Monument Valley in 2012.


It was a cold, windy, bracing day of amazing clouds and light...can't do it justice, but this picture encapsulated the feeling of the day

For anyone that likes Grand Canyon shots, I got lots. Stayed 3 nights on the south rim, 2 on the north, and day tripped to Toroweap.

Wow, northern AZ and southern UT look spectacular.

Are all these red rocks taken at the magic hour?

Or are they as brilliantly red at high noon?

They are indeed most spectacular. I will be back there in a couple years.

A lot of the rocks are quite red with the sun high up. My last posted photo was close to sunset, but if you look at all the photos from the last few days, you should be able to see from the shadows or lack of them where the sun was. For example, Monument Valley, Sedona, and Toroweap are places where the rocks are just naturally very red in nearly any light.

A couple of Grand Canyon shots. The pano was taken at around noon at the south rim. Taken with Nikon D610 and cropped. F22 at 1/80, 24 mm.

The other is Cape Royal at the north rim taken 3ish pm. Taken with Nikon D5200 with ND filter. F20 at 1/100, 10 mm.

Both shots were 3 shots bracketed, HDR in Lightroom.

We were at the South Rim in August. Here is a Pano of four hand held shots (not even taken in sequence). Not a great image but I was curious what it would look like.

Notice it was taken at 10:30 AM.

Thread's gone quiet again. RonBoyd, your last GC shot looks like somewhere along Desert View Road. I'll key off one of Ronstar's shots and see if we can get this going some more.

Antelope Canyon and Crater Lake.

Actually, it was more pedestrian than that. It was at Mather Point on the South Rim. We had spent over two weeks in Southern California with our 16 year old granddaughter and friend (Yosemite, San Francisco, LA, San Diego) and were in a rush to get back to Wyoming. We spent maybe 30 minutes there and took many pictures of the girls but few of the Canyon itself... that's why I had to piece together, from scraps, the above Pano.

I just picked a photo for my avatar. Can you tell what it is? Should I use something else? The avatar image is so small.

It vaguely looks like a landscape shot, maybe out West. That's the trouble with avatars, by the time you shrink them down it can be hard to see what it is.

A video rather than a photo; the link was sent to me on Facebook. I liked it so much I had to share.

DrRoy,
It looks like the Yellowstone River at Artist's Point. Is it?
