Delicate Drama & Downward

Spread the love

id you all have a great Thanksgiving weekend? I had the opportunity to attend a ropes course to continue building skills which I am looking forward to putting to use so we spent some time camping in the Sedona area. The weather was pretty chilly but it was a great time. I can’t wait for the snow to start falling in Sedona!

Today’s image comes from Arches National Park. Delicate Arch is one of the most photographed places in the park. The hike up, while not technically difficult, is rather strenuous due to the elevation gain but once you get to the top, the sight is quite impressive. It was an overcast day that threatened rain at every turn but delivered little more than the occasional spray. I decided to use the sepia tones in this image to bring out the dramatic sky. Please feel free to leave your thoughts and feedback!


Have I mentioned how much I loved shooting at Bryce? I really wasn’t sure what to expect but now I wish I had spent more time. Kristi and I plan to visit both Bryce and Zion National Parks between Christmas and New Year next month. I’m hoping for some nice snow to contrast with these beautiful orange colors.

I took this photo on one of the trails that lead down through the spires. It was only a three mile loop that was a lot more fun going down then coming back up. I loved this little section of switchbacks leading downward.
