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.

Riding Shotgun

Cleo hates riding so I provide a dark hole in the back of the SUV for him to sleep it out. His sister, on the other hand, wants to be wherever I am which means riding shotgun. She complains quite a bit….”are we there yet”….but for the most part, she tolerates the journey well. The minute we arrive in a campground, though, they’re both excited to get out and check it out! They love people and critter watching and are always rewarded with lots of both.

Lower Pine Creek Falls Zion

Our friend Richard has been coming to Zion for years but had never seen the falls so we decided to re-visit before we left. No complaints from me especially since I regretted not capturing a side view of the falls. Didn’t get wet this time, thanks to Chris 🙂

Our Navigator

Although we do have a Garmin Navigator, Cloe does a really good job of showing us the right roads to take. Both she and Cleo love RVing and have requested to go to places like CATalina, the CATskills and CATmandu 🙂

Here’s Cloe in HDR. Happy Halloween!

Entering Zion

It’s still raining. A challenge but I’m up for it 🙂

Sunflower Hill

Here’s another of my favorite infrareds. The Sunflower Hill Bed and Breakfast in Moab, Utah is one of the most special places we’ve ever stayed and I felt infrared would show off its charm perfectly. This was taken in 2003 with my Minolta Dimage 7. Shortly after, they put in a hot tub on the side lawn which took away a lot of the charm in my opinion but it’s still a great place with fabulous breakfasts!
