Apparently I didn’t get around to posting a picture of the Grand Canyon. What a place!! Awesome doesn’t begin to cover it. It is also about impossible to photograph in any way that conveys the scale of the thing. Here’s one of the million of pictures I took. All of them rather diminishes the canyon by being reduced to 3,000 x 2,000 pixels
One of the most special days on our trip through the US last Sept was a pre-dawn guided tour of Monument Valley. We were staying in a tent in the sand dunes that look out on the Mittens, and stumbled out of the tent and to the hotel to meet our guide for the morning. The first stop we made was on the dirt road dropping into park. There had been some rain which served as nice foreground interest for this shot.
This was taken in July 2015. The golden hour was giving some particularly great colours of the lighthouse at Godrevy and the headlands of Gwithian and St Agnes as the sun set. I can’t wait to return in about six weeks time (unless I can work out a way to get down for a few days before then).
This is one one of my favourite shots from our US trip. An early morning sunrise shoot at Bryce Canyon and whilst waiting for the hoodoos to light up from the early morning sun, I turned towards the sunrise and saw this wonderful cloud. I hope you like it.
We loved Trinidad in Cuba. There are certainly lots of great photo opportunities. One of the really nice places to get a view of the town is by climbing the bell tower of the church. We did this as the sunset one evening and was treated to a fantastic display as the sun slipped below the horizon over the sea.
We stayed in what is laughingly called a campsite. We were pointed in the direction of some sand dunes looking directly on to the Mittens. We pitched our tent and in the morning it was like waking up in a John Wayne movie. The site did have washrooms and a office which had wifi, and depending on the direction of the wind, the wifi occasionally reached to the tent some 20 metres further into the sand dunes. A wonderful place.
