"Utah Landscapes"
Tue 30-Apr-13 09:40 PM by Rassie

Milton, CA
          

I spent a couple of days in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks this last weekend.

The silent sentinel was shot near the Windows area of Arches. The sun was setting directly behind the sentinel. The other picture was part of Mesa Arch at sunrise in Canyonlands. There is such a crush of photographers at Mesa Arch that only those who arrive really early and with an extremely wide angle lens have any hope of showing the entire arch. When I got there I had to be content with a spot with a small angle of view, so had to make the best of the situation.

Mesa Arch: D7000 with Nikkor 18-200 mm VR11. ISO 200, F/11, 1/80 sec, tripod.
Sentinel: D7000 with Sigma 150-500 mm.
ISO 640, F/8, 1/400 sec, tripod.

Very nice Koos

I just left there in March after 7 months on a project. I know what you mean about the crowds. Too bad they have to make it difficult to get a good shot. It is a beautiful place though.

Thanks, Peter. Yes, I guess it's challenging with the crowds sometimes. But then it inspires us to do something different like looking for a different approach or angle. Keeps us on our toes

Nicely done, Rassie. I very much like the second image. This time of year makes for great sunset colors.

Mesa Arch--you did well to capture what you did. It's a lovely image. I've been among the throngs many times. You really have to get there WELL in advance of the first hint of light, doing the hike in darkness with a headlamp. On top of that, you have to know exactly where you want to set up because once the crowds come out there is very little opportunity to move around with your gear. I think if you're there, it's worth the effort.

I'm thinking it's about time for the desert flowers to start the bloom. I'm sure you got many great images. Post 'em up!

Thanks, Claudia.
We spent a couple of days in Salt Lake City to attend my nephew's graduation. After that we rented a car and drove to Moab, and from there we explored the parks. Fantastic scenery. Next time maybe we'll rent a jeep and hit the trails - I`m sure there are beautiful scenes along the Colorado River as well.

Your shot of Mesa Arch is not the traditional one but it turned out very well. Nice job dealing with the crowd.

Thanks, Larry. Next time I`ll get there earlier, and with a very wide angle lens. There was a professional photog there who had set up at 04:00 to be there for the 06:16 sunrise. He was there first and had the best location.

#2 is wonderful. With the silhouette, the hoodoo almost seems to take on a human form. Great light!

Thanks, Dan.
Interesting - I started out with the 18-200 mm lens, then realized less is more and switched to my birding lens to get in closer. That made a difference. The hoodoo does resemble a human, doesn`t it?
