Curecanti Creek
« on: October 09, 2017, 11:55:42 AM »

This is a nice trail that descends a few Miles and several thousand vertical feet into the start of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison from the less-traveled North Rim. It's a favorite local hike of ours and this time of year the colors are usually pretty good too. The day was perfectly clear with pretty harsh direct light so the shade of the canyon was a huge help for the photos.

I like #1 better, because it excludes the harsh highlights that show up in the other two photos. It must be an incredible place to visit.

Very nice!  I like the light reflections in the water of the second one.

Just a note that the second one appears to be missing. (I do like the first, and hope Matt will repost the second.)

Good to see you are enjoying the fall.  I hope to get out this weekend on the east side of the sierra.  The first one is wonderful.

Thanks. Is it there now?

Thanks for all the comments! I agree about the bright spots being a little distracting. An hour later would have probably taken care of that but my wife was farther up the trail already waiting for me to finish shooting so I had to take what I got. :)
