Happy New Year

Friday, December 30th, 2011

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.  It has been keeping me pretty busy, which is why I haven’t done a post for a few days.  Sorry about that. Here are Brooke and Kat still in Wirepass Canyon.  It’s a beautiful place that I’ve been to several times.  This was the best shoot there […]

Happy Christmas

 A quick post to wish you all the best at this holiday season.  Whatever you celebrate at this time of year, I hope you enjoy yourself and think of others who are not as fortunate as you.  This has been a season for celebration for as long as humans have been celebrating.  The sun has […]

Playing (In) The Slots

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

After we escaped from the simply awful San Juan Inn and stopped for a great breakfast at Gouldings we drove on through Monument Valley and headed toward Page, Arizona.  But we drove on through Page and continued on to St. George which was the closest place I had been able to find to rent a 4WD […]

The season has gotten to me.  Sorry, but life and Christmas have been keeping me from doing new posts here.  I’ll be back at it soon, but since I haven’t had time for editing and playing around with software to try to get the files to look the way I want them, I thought I’d […]

Brooke in Little Wild Horse Canyon

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

“The artist’s job? To be a miracle worker: make the blind see, the dull feel, the dead to live.”  –Edward Abbey Here are a couple photos of Brooke down in Little Wild Horse Canyon.  This canyon is fairly shallow and open, compared to some others, and we were there at mid-day, so we had a […]

Little Wild Horse Canyon

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

        “All we have, it seems to me, is the beauty of art and nature and life, and the love which that beauty inspires.”                       –Edward Abbey                        After our pause at the twin trees we headed on down into Little Wild Horse Canyon.  This was my first time in this canyon, so I wasn’t […]

Edward Abbey

Monday, December 5th, 2011

“Under the desert sun, in the dogmatic clarity, the fables of theology and the myths of classical philosophy dissolve like mist. The air is clean, the rock cuts cruelly into flesh; shatter the rock and the odor of flint rises to your nostrils, bitter and sharp. Whirlwinds dance accross the salt flats, a pillar of […]

Moving On

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Getting back to the account of our trip out west…After spending some time at Goblin Valley, we moved on to Little Wild Horse Canyon, a nearby slot canyon.  We had planned to dedicate a day to each of these locations, but thanks to the deer in Nebraska we were reduced to just one day for […]

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

I downloaded a trial of Corel PaintShop Pro today and gave it a try.  I’m impressed.  Not exactly the same as PhotoShop, of course, but a very useful, versatile program that looks like it could do everything I need at a very reasonable cost and no issues with upgrades or RAW processing for new cameras.  […]
