Gone to See American 2008 Road Trip. Driving from Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument to Bryce National Park.
Double Rainbow. While driving from Zion National Park to Bryce National Park on Utah Highway 12, I noticed a dark sky and then a rainbow in my rear-view mirror. I stopped along the road just outside Canyonville and started to take some pictures. It was great that I had a dark background so I could see the double rainbow. By the time the rainbow was done several other cars stopped. I was the only one with a tripod, which was good since I could take several exposures for later HDR processing.
Gone to See America 2008. Moab Utah Photography Workshop with Winston Hall. Day 2: Dead Horse State Park, Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park.
Orange Dragonfly on a Car Antenna. I noticed this orange dragonfly while waiting for the group to assemble on day 2 of the Eastern Utah Photography Workshop. It landed on a car antenna and remained still long enough to get several images. I really like the 80-400 mm VR lens since I can hand-hold it and get macro images of insects from 8 feet.
Big Spider at My Front Door. I saw this big spider lurking above my front doorway, and decided to enter via the back door. I then came back around with a camera, macro lens, and flash. This is the biggest spider I have ever seen in New Jersey. I really don’t like spiders, but do like taking their pictures. I don’t know what type of spider it is. If anyone knows, please send me a message.
