Next image: Starting Monday off with a flashback image from the Vermillion Cliffs area in Arizona. These two rock statues are fun to photograph. Didn’t get the best sunset but got a few clouds that created a nice background. Have a great Monday!!! 📷: @canonusa 5DMk4
Previous image: A dip into the archives for this image. I have a large 40” or so Lumachrome of this in my office waiting room. It’s a scene I just love. This is the Grand View at the end of the Island in the Sky loop in Canyonlands National Park! It’s a drop off straight down probably close to a mile to the first deck. And who knows how far down the claw like canyons drop. Do you see the claw? Or the raptor hand? Full disclosure this is a composite, as I took the foreground before the Milky Way was all the way up as a very low iso long exposure like ~10 min. Then came back the same night and captured the stars. Then blended them in Photoshop. Which brings me to another thought. What is photography? What is art? I often think about those questions too often tho. Does it really matter? One thing I love about capturing the stars is that I get to share what my brain sees. See we all see things differently. We see with our minds not our eyes. The imagination is an amazing tool!!! So next time someone asks did you photoshop that. The answer is “yes”! It’s the tool that shares what my mind sees!!!
