Monuments in Fog

Monuments in Fog

I’ve wanted to photograph Monument Canyon in the fog for a while, and this morning I finally got the chance. As I left for work, I just couldn’t resist and headed up to the Colorado National Monument instead. I arrived up above the fog just in time to watch the sun rise over the Grand Mesa. It was a spectacular view and worth missing a few hours of work.

When I first arrived, the fog was all the way down in the Grand Valley and Monument Canyon was free and clear of fog. Once the sun was up, the fog slowly crept out of the valley and into the canyon. It was an amazing sight!

Balance Rock & Moon

Balance Rock & Moon

As I was leaving the Colorado National Monument yesterday in the evening, I noticed that the moon lined up nicely between Balance Rock and the cliff next to it. I created two different versions of this photo; one with the rock in silhouette and another version with some detail visible in the rocks. I prefer the silhouette version the best, but I will go ahead and post the other version below. Feel free to let me know which one you prefer in the comments.

Little Book Cliffs

Little Book Cliffs

I went up on the Uncompahgre Plateau with Jackson yesterday to photograph the sunset. While we were up there I took this panoramic photo of the light on the Little Book Cliffs. This image is made up of five stitched images. It’s been a while since I stitched images for a panoramic photo, and I really like the way this one came out.

Waiting for Warmer Weather

20120128-102730.jpg

Part of my birthday present to myself this year arrived yesterday. I was originally going to wait a few more months to buy an inflatable kayak, but I came across a great deal on the boat I wanted that I couldn’t pass up.

Now I just need to wait for the temperatures and water levels to rise so I can get out on the rivers! It should be another great year of exploring!
