There is something magical to Coal Mine Canyon. Named Coal Mine Canyon due to the coal seam that is found there, the canyon is a gem in an otherwise vast area of the top of a huge mesa. I have been here a number ot times, trying to get a good shot of the location. But the light has always failed me. Either it was wet and rainy, which I thought would give me some good moody photographs, but alas, I was disappointed with what I got.
But not this time! This time, with my wife Bobbie with me (she was my good luck charm ;-) ), I was able to get the photograph that I knew was there all along.
I took this photograph using my Canon 5D mark II with my Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens set to 24mm. I took this shot with my camera set at f/11 at 1/200 sec at ISO 100. I processed the photograph in Lightroom, with final processing in Photoshop with a trip to my favorite plugin, Nik's ColorEfx Pro for a little extra punch.
You can buy this as a print (among other photographs) at my Fine Art America website here.
