Fun at 50! (mm that is)

First, let me apologize for my absence.  Work seems to be getting in the way of my photography lately, and I need to get out more.

This past weekend I said enough is enough, and I’m going shooting!  I grabbed my camera and decided to use my 50mm prime lens (which I haven’t used for some time), hopped on the shuttle and went up to the Temple of Sinawava.  It was close to sunset, so light was fading fast and I needed to hurry. IMG_8905 copyEast Mesa

I went to look into the Virgin River to capture a rapid or two.

Right after sunset, I captured the dramatic sense of how deep Zion Canyon really is.


Heading back to the shuttle, I happen to see a bumble bee buzzing around, so I tried my hand at freestyle macro.  By the way, I’ve never seen a bumble bee look like this, anyone else?IMG_8956 copy

After arriving back at the Lodge, I took this of the Mountain of the Sun.  IMG_8973 copy






Art on Display!

Update: the print was taken down on Saturday for a couple of months for a festival artist, then will go back up afterwards.

Today marks a new grand event. This afternoon, I hung a print on canvas of the Temple of Sinawava (pictured below) at the Desert Pearl Inn, in Springdale, Utah. The dimensions are 40 x 30, and it’s in black and white.

If you reside near, or are visiting Zion National Park, I encourage you to go and see it. This print is magnificent and breath taking. It is for sale, and it’s listed at $800 framed and $600 unframed, which includes shipping. You can order a print from my website on the order page at The image is called “Temple of Sinawava”.

I look forward to hearing from you, you can also leave comments on my comment page as well.
