I arrived in Moab  a day early for a Photo Safari with Winston Hall. The parking lot at the motel where I was staying was filled with Vintage Chevrolet Club of America Classic Cars on tour across Utah and Arizona.

Gone to See America August 2010 Road Trip. Day 2: Crystal Geyser near Green River, Utah.

I returned to Crystal Geyser in the morning since I didn’t see it erupt the previous evening. The interesting thing about Crystal Geyser is that it is a cold geyser, powered by carbon dioxide. I did see a minor eruption, then hit the road for Great Basin National Park in Utah. For a bigger eruption check out  11-May-2009.

Road Scholar “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 3. Hovenweep National Monument.

The Road Scholar/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.

Gone to See America 2013. On the Road: Green River to Sedona.

Early DIY Car Cam time-lapse video. Driving from Green River to Sedona. Eight hours travel time compressed to two minutes 44 seconds. Images captured with a Nikon One V2 camera and 10 mm f/2.8 lens mounted on a tripod sitting in my passenger seat. The 3934 images were processed with Photoshop CC  and exported  into a 720p 24p time-lapse video. Fast-forward to today, and I am about to mount a Garmin VIRB camera on my dashboard so I can do 360 degree time-lapse videos on future road trips.
