A new feature for 2018, I am posting a photograph of the day and sharing my work with you.

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.

for Purchase

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but can't decide on my next camera) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape and travel photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
