All around the Angels Landing (Zion NP)

Well, I'm posting more but my images aren't as good as they use to be I think! But they aren't bad just not as practiced as I was when traveling, and also I expect to get great pictures all the time Ha! Jokes on me!

Yesterday was a hot one down here and so I grabbed my shorts and water shoes and went to Zion NP for the day, the water over there was nice about 60 degrees and the water was running at 60 feet per second which a month ago it was up to 300 fps so easier for me to stay standing ...

Now that I've got the news done let me show you some photo's ...

 Across the street monolith

  This was the way I saw the world yesterday it was fun and the water was cool on a nice hot day, so have a great fathers day day! And see you soon I hope with more photo's

Take care

Went out for a hike in the evening

So after work yesterday I took a hike that I thought I couldn't do because of the road going to the parking spot, went into a local canyoneering place and they told me that I could do it gave me some confidence to try if not I could always back out, well it was a lot easier than I thought (banged bottom only once and then went slower coming out of the place.

I went to a place in Zion that's called Eagles Craig trail head, suppose to be a gentle hike well it's a up hill gentle hike for 2.8 miles and to make matters worse it was in the heat of the day 95 degrees and I only brought a quart of water and no energy food dumb me! I will not do that again. Till the next time.

Here is the one photo that I took cause I was running out of time in the evening, it's nice view.

Well till next time take care

Living close to Zion you get Zion!

Well, had a great weekend and tomorrow I'm off to work again, it's ok since I had such a fine weekend. I visited Zion National park because this will be the last weekend before the masses come and take over the place, it was not busy and also made for a nice weekend.

I've got a fun toy again and learning how to use it is fun, it's the first lens that I have owned that I will not get rid of (that's a lie, the first one, 135mm is also my joy) but I don't take this one off the camera.

That said here goes again!

 This one I thought wasn't going to work but looks nice 
 Another one that I thought wouldn't look good 

 They really do something different when they put these on here they don't look like these on my screen!

  Well, as you can see it was a nice weekend for shooting in Zion, not many people and lots of fine things to shoot, thanks for looking......

A new day, at Zion National park

Well, its been a while since I last updated, I'm going to be doing more again because it's summer and I have a big Bucket list to get done this summer Soooo! Here goes.

Since the last time I posted I've had a heart attack and it's not slowed me down to much but the doctors have me doing a lot of rehab and I'm getting strong again, so off I go.

I drew out a permit to do the subway hike from the top down, I'm really excited to do this, I've done it from the bottom up but not the top down, I've conned a few folks into coming with me, hope we do it in style (not bad style good style like make it) Ha!

Well, enough BS here goes .....

 Saw this reflection and had to try to get a photo of it. 

I've tried to get this one for years but haven't got one, now I do! 

 This one I think is called Minuet Falls 

Well, just a short note today and I hope I can keep this up.

I'm back! Been learning something else so...

I've been learning guitar and its fun but the camera is the most fun for me cuss it's personal and gets me out of my head..

Sooo! Here are a bunch of new photo's with this new to me lens that's 20+ years old, it seems like that's the amount of years that most of my lenses are .... anyway here goes.

These are portraits and I'm not a portrait person but they are fun to view and these are special to me...

Thanks for looking

Looks rather dark to me here but a early morning shot in the back country

Well another nice photo opportunity

Spent a day in Kanarraville Ut

I've been looking at this place for a while now and a friend came to town and I got the chance to take him out to this place or I should say he took me, I drove he drove me to hike up to the falls and beyond, it's an interesting place as I'm going to show you so here goes!

 This is the first thing you see when you get there but it's even better farther on!

 I was trying to get around the next corner but there were many people shooting there so I turned around and took this. 

This what I was trying to get to before the other shot nice Huh!

Another point of view 

This where we were headed to it's called Kanarra Falls, I'm going back to wait for different light next time this is nice but I've got different idea's now. 

 This is just above that falls, nice Huh! 

We ended the hike here since I had to go home to do some work, darn! 

Same shot vertical 

Well this was a long one but it was fun to go and see, I'm going back to do some more one of these days, the crowds are terrible at this time of year so I'll wait for a while then go again ....

Take care

About Me

My photo
I lived in Park City,Utah. I've been an avid climber, skier, hiker, Photographer and yoga, participant. Travel much to do all of these activities and want to continue to do more traveling. Now that I've finished my travels of the Oregon Coastline and found that I'm not to fond of the rain but love the Ocean and surf. I'm now settled down in Southern Utah and traveling the four corners area. The warmth of the desert is a welcoming feeling for my wet bones, I love it here and believe I'll stay for awhile. The photographing here is to say the least more fun and really plentiful as you can see if you take a look at my site. Take care and get yourself out of the indoors and out into this great big beautiful world we live in.
