Antelope Canyon

As part of my road trip to the American Southwest we made a detour to get to Antelope Canyon for what was a stressful few hours of shooting.  Anyone who has been there will know what I mean.  The day we decided to go, there was a miserable sandstorm blowing in so while we were both getting there and there in the canyon there was fine sand blowing everywhere.  Unfortunately I forgot I had brought my rain cover for my camera so was doing my best to keep the sand out of my zoom and camera.  Needless to say things are still little gritty but seem to be working ok.   Anyway I have always loved some of the photos I have seen from this place for their deep red colours and the wonderful patterns and textures.  Below are a few of my favorites.

Zion National Park

On a recent whirlwind road trip to the American Southwest, I experienced some fabulous weather along with great company.  One of our first stops along the way was Zion National Park.  Zion National Park is cut out of the Navajo Sandstone with the north fork of the Virgin River running right through the middle of it.  During our limited time at the park we managed to get in a great late afternoon hike to the top of Angels Landing for some fabulous views.
