An original take on an ancient canyon that makes up part of the very origin of the 277 mile long, over a mile deep, Grand Canyon. With 4 workshops coming up in the area, I am getting very excited about the awesome privilege of guiding my clients to some original SW locations either rarely or never photographed.
Processing techniques are explained in my various Photoshop Video Tutorials. Feel free to Facebook me or visit WildForLight.com
Taken on one of my “Chasing Monsoon Light in the great Southwest” workshops. One of those awesome definitive moments when my clients and I, all, caught the monsoon light very powerfully! Literally 3 minutes after the shot was taken we all ran to our cars as we got blasted with high wind, rain and even hail! Everyone vehamently agreed, it was worth it! 🙂
My processing techniques are shared on my Video Tutorials, and more about my unique adventure workshops can be found at my website WildForLight.com
As always feel free to FaceBook me. I share a lot of behind the scenes details there.
Looks even better when viewed on a black background.
My first time to view and photograph this Iconic scene at Horseshoe Bend, Being so close to the edge caused me some nervous stress, especially when heights scare me, but this was well worth the nervous stress.
This image is best viewed on a black background. There are three exposures for this image, to capture the high dynamic range of light to dark requires at least three exposures and often more exposures. Exposures were blended in PS. Part of this image reminds me of a tulip and the tiny bit of tumble weed had the look of a dancer, hence the title for this image. Canyon X was unbelievable crazy to stand in and watch as the sunlight would hit the sandstone walls and see the amazing glow of colors that would form and intensify as the sun’s light moved across the slot openings high above the deep and narrow canyon floor. Unlike Antelope canyon with big crowds, this was a private tour that lasted six hours so we could get shots as the sun passed over and around these slot canyons. Even with nine of us when the light would hit an area we all wanted to be right there with our cameras, hard because of the narrow space between the sandstone walls.
