This is the last light of day at one of my favorite Canyonlands viewpoints.  The warm light was really making the red rock glow – I actually used Photoshop to desaturate this image as it didn’t look realistic.

There was no way Janine was going to get out on this point, so I set everything up, changed jackets with her, and had her hit the shutter as I stood on the viewpoint.

Take a look at more of our Canyonlands National Park photos.

  1. Ron, you could use a Pocket Wizard to get this sort of thing on your own, then Janine wouldn’t have to work like a slave getting these glamour shots of you.

    LOL. I even had some Pocket Wizards back in the truck – had I known I was going to be feeling glamorous, I would have brought them and saved Janine from the difficult job of pushing the little button. 🙂

  3. Hey Ron,

    Pocket Wizard = couple hundred bucks
    Wife like Janine = priceless.

    This is killer. I’d almost have opted against the red jacket in this situation, but it really pops.

    Great photo.

    Cheers

  4. Nice grand scenic and sense of scale thanks to you being the brave one. Red rock country is amazing how they look unreal and need to be desaturated. I shot some Velvia in red rock country years ago and didn’t show a thing from it as it too looked unreal! Love how this looks!

  6. I was at Canyonlands in May and saw some photographers climbing over the railings to get great shots. No way I was going to do that!

    I had difficulty working on my Utah pics as everything looked so orange and red.

    I don’t think we will make it there on this trip, but have in the past – that area is great in the fall!

    Thanks,

    Ron
