Walking Along the Edge of Utah

Renting RVs

I feel like I’ve accidentally become kind of an expert in renting RVs for photo adventures! I never thought I’d be one of those RV-kinda-guys, and I don’t really see myself like that yet. But I guess I’m moving a bit in that direction. I must admit that it is very very nice to have a ton of space to hold all my camera gear and a fridge full of goodies always at the ready!

Daily Photo – Walking Along the Edge of Utah

Bryce Canyon is an unbelievable place. The drive is a bit daunting to get here, and here is a tiny tip that I hope doesn't kill you upon arrival.

Like most National Parks, there are many places to park and then walk up to a railing for some view spots. But if you just walk around the end a bit, you can get even more amazing shots. Note you don't have to go up to the very edge, and I don't recommend that. I never do that. I usually hang back a little or make sure there is actually a gentle slope or something along these lines. Nothing too scary! But, anyway, don't be afraid to do a little bit of scouting. All the fences make it seem like you're surely gonna die if you don't stay beside them, but that's not true if you're smart and have your head screwed on straight!

New Photomatix Discount Code

Since I used Photomatix on the photo below, I thought this would be a good time to give you the updated news. Maybe a few days ago you saw there is a new algorithm coming with Photomatix 5, which is very interesting — but we also have a new discount code. It has been updated inside the free HDR Tutorial here on the site. To get use the new code, just visit the Photomatix page and use “TREYRATCLIFF” to save 15%.

Stay inside during rain

So I stood out in a thunderstorm to get this shot. It wasn’t one of my best ideas, but apparently, it’s probably the worst idea in this area. After I got back in the car, I saw some signs warning against the dangers of doing what I had just done.

Daily Photo – Bryce Canyon National Park

I love Utah! How have I lived so many years but never really taken the time to visit Utah? This is a major oversight on my part, but now I have corrected it. I’ve just gotten back from a very very long trip and am processing all my photos, and here is one of the first ones out of the hopper – the amazing Bryce Canyon National Park. What a place this is!
