Canyonlands
« on: April 16, 2020, 07:21:43 am »

From 18 months ago, taken during my epic journey all the way across America to many of the places that MR went to in his video journals - and what a fantastic photographic holiday I had, so thanks Michael  :)

Perfect sky and reflections. Conditions were just right for those majestic rock formations.

Thanks everyone  :)

Yes me to, but this time we are also going to do the entire West coast of America from top to bottom and all points in between if we can - fingers crossed etc...

Thanks for that Earlybird and yes of course I am more than happy to show you where I took this pano shot, so here is a linked view that will show you exactly where I jumped out of my car to take this shot - just go around (or over) the fence and setup in front of this smallish body of water on a calm day, as the sun is starting to go down on your right as you look down the length of this small man made lake - Go Here

..and don't forget to show us your version of this scene, when you do get chance to go out and take it of course  ;)

Hi Dave,
 Thanks for sharing the info. I commend your eye and vision, I have driven by that reservoir many times, and often stopped to watch ducks, but never imagined that a composition such as you made was there to be realized. Well done!

 Thank you!

No problem and thank you so much  :)

Lovely shot of you enjoying being in that area Peter, and if only we could all have the opportunity of being there right this minute, I imagine it would lead to quite a few beverages being consumed with much smiling and merriment, as well as lots of photography related stories being shared around the campfire etc.

Thanks again everyone  :D

Anybody got anything from Druid Arch down there? I took my jeep a little ways back in there, then decided I loved her too much to break her...

Not me, that's for sure.  I just searched it on Google Maps.  I have high clearance, but 2WD and a non-locking diff. 

Ain't gonna happen unless I walk.

Beautiful! I have not been down to that part of the park for many years. I usually wind up closer to Moab but this reminds me I need to get back to the Needles District.

Here's where I shot that image.  An absolutely superb, free BLM lands unofficial campsite.  Easy access to any vehicle.

Just don't be there occupying the prime site when I next show up!  :)
