On the Edge of a Canyon

Taking in the view on the east rim of Island in the Sky in Canyonlands National Park.

On an afternoon with decent clouds I decided to do some black and white, here is one of the locations, right on the edge.

Before you ask, it was a still day.........In a wind, I would not be that close but on a still day. It really goes back to being at the Grand Canyon once, having my tripod back 2 feet from the edge of the abyss, and having someone stand in front of me.

So getting to the edge solves that problem.

In Canyonlands

I returned to Canyonlands National Park this last February to take in the red rock country in winter. Last year I saw quite a bit of snow at Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon. I was hoping for a repeat, however this is more of what I saw.

Thats ok, because I got some great light and sky making it an even better trip than my last visit here in 2008.

Here I am set up in the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands.
