False Kiva is in Canyonlands National Park, a gem of a National Park just outside of Moab, Utah. Well worth the visit!

This is a panorama of the view looking out into the canyons beyond False Kiva. It is unknown if False Kiva was built by indigenous peoples or by white settlers in the 1800’s.  It is called False Kiva in that kivas are generally in the ground, rather than above ground.

False Kiva is located in Canyonlands National Park, in the Island in the Sky district, but will not show up on any park maps. Most likely as it is at least a moderate hike, especially at the end when you are scrambling up a steep incline on scree and there is nothing between you and the cliff top just a few dozen feet below you. But the views are definitely rewarding and worth the scramble.

This photograph is a composite of four photographs.  The photographs were taken in portrait orientation, then I let Lightroom stitch them together into this photograph. I did some light processing in Lightroom, then final processing in Photoshop and used Nik’s fabulous plugin ColorEfx Pro. For those who might not know, Nik was bought by Google, who let the Nik Collection (my favorite plugin collection) die on the vine. Then in October of 2017 they sold the collection to DxO who promises to upgrade the plugin and publish it.

Anyways, this was taken with a Canon 6D using my Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens at 42mm.  I shot this at f/16 at 1/30 sec at ISO 100.

You can purchase this photograph as a print, a canvas wrap or even aluminum at my Fine Arts America website here.
