…in the Grand Canyon.
Usually the view made is of the Colorado River centered
in the image. I thought it was time for a “view askew” (with
apologies to filmmaker Kevin Smith).
…surrounded by red rock.
In Canyon De Chelly, Arizona.
Looking back at one of the entrances to Carlsbad Caverns.
At this one, a visitor walks to the bottom. There is another
entrance with an elevator taking you directly there.
The Canyon de Chelly National Monument is located in Chinle, AZ, Navajo Nation.
The image above was made as I trekked the White House Trail to the bottom.

…in the Grand Canyon.
Hiking on a trail in the Grand Canyon can be exhausting.
An option is riding a donkey.
I didn’t when I was visiting, but other’s did.
Photograph made with 35mm slide film and scanned
using a Nikon scanner.
Yesterday I featured a sunset at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Today is a sunrise at the South Rim.

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah.
Perfect place for a hike.

Photograph made several years ago.
I posted this photograph on my blog in 2009. My son and I had gotten lost during a nighttime photography adventure. I reposted the photograph because it’s one of my favorites.

The rainbow was photographed from Grand View Point Overlook in Canyonlands National Park, Utah. I was there in 2009 and hope to be heading back next year. (If not to Canyonlands, then someplace out west.) I have a gallery titled “The West” from the trip at my Rich Green Photography website.
This is one of my favorite places on the face of the earth. I was there in 2006 and will be going back next year. This image was photographed from “John Ford’s Point”. John Ford was the American film director who made some of the greatest films such as “The Searchers” and “Stagecoach”. These films were shot in Monument Valley, one of his favorite places when filming on location.

It’s been a while since I’ve updated – I’ve been working with Photoshop CS2 for several years now and thought it was time to finally upgrade. Of course when someone makes a big jump, there’s lots to learn in the process. I picked up the just-released copy of Martin Evening’s book – Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers. I read his book for CS2 and liked it. With this type of book there are dozens of photographs used for demonstration of techniques and methods. So it came as a big surprise that Martin Evening and I took (almost) the same photo. (See above.) His version is on page 178-179 in his book and on the DVD that is included. Now I realize that millions of photos are taken by millions of photographers (amateur and pro) and many are of the same subject matter. However I was surprised because the place – just east of Capitol Reef National Park, Utah – is not exactly a common stop for most folks – but that it also wound up being used as an example in his book.
When I visited the park last year, I photographed with my digital camera. I would like to go back with my 4×5 camera. I really want to spend some serious time, taking my time, to photograph. Everything just takes my breath away.
