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

Last rays of the setting sun at Coal Mine Canyon, Navajo Nation, Arizona.

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.

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!
