Getting the itch to post a picture... can't resist much longer...

The last one I'll post from my re-visit to Zion National Park's Subway feature. I wanted to find some fresh compositions here, the fall leaves add a little extra dynamic to the image.

I took a quick 3 day weekend to Zion National Park. The first day was beautiful shorts/ tee-shirt weather, the following two were overcast, cloudy, foggy, and rainy. My very favorite weather to be practicing photography.

The bridge where I took this is akin to a circus at either sunrise or sunset, with hordes of other photographers jostling for a shot at this iconic location. I took this one well into the morning after the crowd had cleared and had the whole bridge to myself!

Cathedral Valley in Capital Reef National Park is one of the more unique environments in Utah. I took this image standing beneath the giant Monolith "Temple of the Moon" (The structure to the right of the image) In the distance is the even bigger monolith "Temple of the Sun"

Taken the sunset prior to this sunrise:

The Subway feature in Zion National Park is hard to describe. This was my second trip here and my goal for the day was to try to convey as much as possible what its like to experience it.

Rain and wind were a constant this past weekend in the Moab area. While not great for backpacking and mountain biking, this weather instability lends well to dramatic landscapes.

I took my first solo backpacking trip this past weekend to the Red Castle area in the Uinta Mountain Range. Of all the vistas I've seen in my travels, this is definitely one of the most humbling. The place has a true "wild" feel to it, the trailhead is around 12 miles away from this point. I'll have a short journal entry with a couple of the trips highlights.

I still have loads of ideas for photos in the area, I think I'll make this an annual trip.

I finally had chance to get out for some proper Autumn photography in my local area. I had staked this patch of aspens previously and returned in the morning for what I hoped would be a memorable sunrise.

_____Random Info
   After first seeing this sight in my fellow SvenMueller gallery fav.me/d3fvu9o - being the Gollinger waterfall in Austria near the German border next to the NP of Berchtesgarden, I wanted to go there and shot it myself. So after I went to the Alps earlier this year with SvenMueller I traveled down to Berchtesgarden with another friend who picked me up at his place to capture some sights in the Bavaria and Austria - this one being amongst them. I have to say it was more difficult than I had imagined beforehand and moreover the rainy weather made it even more difficult for I had to cover the lens most of the time not get drops on the filters. I cleaned them about 5 times before I actually took a decent composition but still I had quite some fun shooting this location. And although I've seen this quite some times here on DA I am glad that I have my own version of it. Hope you guys like it.
