Gone to See America 2008. Page Arizona Photography Workshop with Winston Hall. Day 1: Lower Antelope Canyon.
On the first day of the Page Arizona Workshop with Winston Hall we started with a session in Lower Antelope Canyon. The upper and lower portions of Antelope Canyon are narrow slot canyons on the Navajo reservation near Page Arizona. The canyons are favorites for photographers because of the constantly changing light and textures. The canyons can be a challenge to photograph because of the wide range of light levels well beyond the capabilities of digital camera sensors. Several of the following images are HDR composites of 5 images (over and under exposed) processed using Photomatix Pro.
Gone to See America 2008. Springtime in New Orleans.
Some images taken while walking along the Mississippi Riverwalk near the convention center during some time off from the American Chemical Society spring national meeting. The images were all processed using Capture One Pro, including conversion to B&W. Compared with before the hurricane, the area around the convention center has undergone significant urban development and improvement.
While driving back to Boulder from Rocky Mountain National Park on Colorado Highway 7, I stopped to take some pictures of Longs Peak. Longs Peak at 14,255 feet is one of 54 mountains in Colorado over 14,000 feet. Several of the images were combined to afford a wider panorama including Estes Cone to the right. Estes Cone looks to be almost the same height as Longs Peak, but is only 11,006 feet.
Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 3. Hovenweep National Monument.
The Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” workshop was based at Kelly Place B&B just outside of Cortez Colorado. This is a great location in McElmo Canyon, quiet and remote. It borders Canyon of the Ancients National Monument. The following images were taken in and around Hovenweep National Monument in Utah.
