Such a beautiful sky and light here after a very rainy day. Took probably an hour and a half of slow driving over the rough dirt track to get to this point.. just a half mile or so past here, the valley road ends at the main highway. Only problem, there is a normally dry wash that was flowing like a river after a couple days of heavy rain, literally 50 yards from the road. No way I wanted to drive all the way back to the other end, especially in the dark, so I trusted my Jeep to perform like it does in the commercials... drove it through the water and up the last little section to the main road and off north towards Blanding. Next day, the ruins I've wanted to shoot for years were unreachable, also due to rain runoff blocking the trail and making it too dangerous to try to cross.

Printing up some new greeting cards for the gallery today and finding a few overlooked shots from last Fall that I kinda like. This one here, a panoramic image from Kanarra Creek slot canyon. I some experimenting with shooting panos in unlikely, narrow spots on this trip; a few worked out quite nicely.

This one is actually cropped out of a larger panorama that I am working on printing and framing for the gallery. Almost passed it by.. after a long day and the rather long climb up to Delicate Arch and back, where I didn't really get any good light, I was thinking I was done... but the sky was starting to break just as I was passing by this spot. Really glad I did pull over, allowing me to catch this few minutes of jaw-dropping light.

The canyon opens up in spots heading upstream. So many perfect little scenes to stop and shoot, you can totally forgot about your wet feet. Luckily, the water wasn't as cold as I expected and it wasn't a problem. Glad I left a dry pair of shoes and socks back at the beginning of the wet part of the hike, though...
