The group arrived last night and I think this is a great bunch of folks!  Jack and I and Dudley Hawthorne have scouted for a couple of days and I think we are ready!  I went out to Dead Horse Point yesterday and finally found the “the tree” thanks to the help of Jim Begley,  It was not in great light, I will try again later but  this was yesterday’s stab at shooting anything like as good as Jim’s image!

 

 

 

 

We stopped  by the lower Delicate Arch, Sunrise locations and found a lot of folks on the ridge for silhouettes.

 

 

 

 

We are headed out to Mesa Arch in Canyonlands this morning, it will be around 30 degrees!!!!  I will share our results later!  Wish you were  here!  Wish I was in bed, under the covers!!!!

Jack and I made it to Moab today, after a stop in Capital Reef.  I never got to share some of the other images from Nelson, and we have not started shooting here yet,  so, here goes on some of the other images I wanted to share!  The shot above is with the 50-140 and a new processing technique Richard Small shared with us, I’m using it on several images here.

 

 

 

The following images were shot and processed in a  conventional way.

 

 

 

 

 

And finally we did some light painting which is always a lot of fun!

 

 

You need to make a trip out to Nelson when you can!

Jack and I traveled up to Capital Reef  N. P. today on our trip over to Moab of the next workshop.  This is one of the most beautiful national parks, but is probably the least visited.  We got in time toy check into our motel in Torrey, UTR, and get out for some late light.

 

 

The red rock formations here are wonderful and the cottonwoods are just starting to bud out in pale green!

 

 

I will share some of the a.m. shots tomorrow evening!

Thanks for the day of rest between Route 66 and Nelson Ghost Town!!  We were out the door this morning at 5:00 a.m. and, as always  it paid!  I am using my personal shooting time to get used to the new 50-140 f 2.8 Fuji zoom.  Let say it now, in the field, the sharepest 70-200 equiv. I’ve ever shot!

Proof?  Feast your eyes on these!

 

 

 

 

Nuff’ said!
