Oldie But Goodie Blast From the Past

This is from Capitol Reef National Park, a place that I definitely want to get back there some day. I only spent one afternoon here and was completely blown away. The light was absolutely spectacular.

Actually the drive from Brice Canyon to Capitol Reef was just about as spectacular than either of these two National Parks combined, I’d like to spend a few weeks at, and in-between, these two destinations sometime very soon.

This one is also one of my very large stitched multi HDR images that are about 85 inches by 17 inches when printed at 360 PPI. Click on it for a larger peek.

My Personal Gallery Picks

Since I now have numerous galleries with thousands of images I decided to consolidate some of my best images from all of the galleries into a more manageable set of four galleries that each include only about fifty of my best shots. Here are the links:

Capitol Reef National Park

Here is the link to my Capitol Reef National Park gallery:

Capitol Reef gets its name directly from the rock formations that can be found in the park, they tend to resemble the capitols found in prominent buildings of Greek architecture. I was lucky that I entered the park just a s the sun was getting low with some storm clouds encroaching in on the area. Good lighting along with great subjects and one has the ingredients for some great pictures.

here is a quick video of the end of the paved scenic road:
