The Watchman and Virgin River

Photographers who go to Zion National Park probably end up with dozens (or even hundreds!) of this quintessential view of the Watchman. How can we resist?! It was overcast and drizzling when I got this shot but I added a few textures to age it a bit and I ended up with something a little different.

Zion Cottonwood Impression

Of course I had to include at least one intentional camera movement image 🙂
Very old Cottonwood along Virgin River.


I had a very disappointing visit to the Phoenix Zoo this morning….photographically, that is. It’s been many years since I’ve been and many of the exhibits have changed making them no longer photography friendly. The animals probably love their new enclosures but there are many more barriers putting them farther away and worse is that many exhibits are now behind heavily fingerprinted and scratched plexiglass. I should say, though, that the majority of the visitors were families with young children who had no absolutely no complaints!


Stuck for a photo this morning so here’s a photo I took a few months ago. I shook my camera at a Prickly Pear cactus and thought the result was pretty cool!

Oak Creek Impression

Oak Creek captured hand held with slight intentional camera movement. A cloudy day contributed the slow shutter speed. ISO 100, 1/5th sec at f/32.

Oak Creek Collage

We spent the last two days of our road trip in Sedona camped along Oak Creek.
