Sunlight Backlighting Log in Slot Canyon


Now you can see how high up the log was in yesterday's photo. The slot canyon is quite high.

Look at the thin slot canyon path below. I really enjoyed walking through Secret Canyon and turning each corner to see what beautiful surprise would be next.

The photographic tour continues with the Vermillion Cliffs, condors, Glen Canyon Dam, Lake Powell, sand dunes, and more.

For travel photos, check out our photos of New Zealand at Viva la Voyage.

What a perfect place for the log to dream of a colourful forest.

What a joy to see your photography.

What a gratefulness for you sharing them.

The canyon is so narrow you can see why it is called "slot canyon".

Julie, I am truly amazed with the fabulous photos you have posted lately! The orange shades of the canyon are absolutely beautiful! Great work indeed and what a place!

Julie: I have a color photo of Glen Canyon from 1959, before the "flood," taken by Brett Weston. It's so beautiful and your images are equally as dramatic and spectacular.

Great subject and photos!

So we're leaving the slot on going to the Vermilion Cliffs. Another gorgeous place in my neck of the woods. Look forward to seeing it through your eyes and lens.

"Slot Canyon" pictures for the past 10mn...

It must be dreamland for a photographer!!!
I am looking at the price of a ticket to Arizona,right now!!!
But may be there is a season to visit the canyons.

The lights and shadows are beautiful. And so many shades of red. Astounding!

It was good to see both photos of the log. As you say that was really high up. Your photographs are just getting better and better. The classes are really paying off. I'm enjoying this series very much and do want to see this for myself.

Julie,
I think you have the most amazing oppotunities. National Geographic needs to sign you up! Gorgeous photos.

This is a spectacular shot! The light is wonderful!

Virginia said...

I am so blown away by these. I can't imagine going down there ( I'd be so afraid I think) and then being able to capture the amazing light etc. These are just spectacular. I am so envious!

Holy cow Julie. The water must really pour through there to lodge it up there that high. Beautiful lighting on this shot.

This has been a wonderful series! Nice shots! Very much looks like an illusive canvas painting.. but, it's actually there!

Nice shot!

This is the first photo that made me feel a little claustrophobic; the sides seems so close. It's totally beautiful, I'd love to see it in person, but.... is it as skinny as this looks? Did you have to turn sideways at times to get around the next corner to stand in awe at the next secret? Oh, wow.
