New on 500px : Coyote Gulch Hiking by leland2 by leland2

Utah, southern, Hiking through an Alcove near Jacob Hamblin Arch in Coyote Gulch. There are some impressive and unique landscape features in Coyote Gulch in the Escalante National Monument of southern Utah. I found this Alcove next to the Jacob Hamblin Arch as striking as the arch itself. I’ve seen some pretty good images of the arch so I opted to work on this spot in order to perhaps get something a little different.

New on 500px : Zion Canyon by leland2 by leland2

Utah, southern, Dramatic panoramic of Zion Canyon in Zion National Park. Capturing the grandeur of a large landscape scene can be one of the most difficult challenges. Far to often the magnificence is lost when rendered on a small two dimensional plane. A lifetime is spent in search of ideal conditions along with beautiful light that might, among other things, create the illusion of a three dimensional space. This clearing storm in Zion National Park of southern Utah was just such an opportunity. I refer to it sometimes as the attempt to do a landscape justice. When the conditions are right, everything has to be done correctly in what can be a very short period of time. Over the decades I’ve missed far more opportunities than I’ve been successful at. It’s the nature of the game and the learning process.

New on 500px : Temple of the Moon by nightscape by nightscape

Milky Way over “Temple of the Moon” in Cathedral Valley, Capitol Reef National Park. Cathedral Valley is a remote area in the park that is accessible only by 4-wheel drive. I hope they never change this —I only saw two other vehicles my whole trip this last weekend! This is a single exposure “NightScape” during which the monument was light painted and the surrounding area received a “fill” light exposure from Mother Nature (read here, or go two images back in my profile)! MORE: is it natural or is it just “Photoshop”? Some have wondered how much of the beauty of my “NightScapes” is natural and how much is Photoshop. To answer that question, click here, or go back one image in my profile >>

New on 500px : Dancing Lines by jhoomes by jhoomes

Climb out of your tent at 3:00 am and drive over thousands of potholes and washboards (in a Honda Civic). Hike in the dark for miles over slickrock and sand. Just so you can be the first to arrive at the Wave the day of your permit and have the place all to yourself for a few fleeting minutes.
