Prior to moving to Utah I made a long journey from Florida to the Western United States by car which ended up being a total of 7584 miles in September of 2007. One of the places on that 2007 trip that I most wanted to see was Bryce Canyon National Park because I wanted to view the hoodoos in person and I am very glad I went because it is beyond gorgeous.

I had seen photos of Bryce Canyon but there is nothing like experiencing the grandeur of this location in person.

My long journey was hampered by smoke from wildfires much of the time so I was disappointed in many of my photos due to the smoke but thanks to the new haze filter in Photoshop’s ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) I was able to process these images and easily remove some of the haze from the effects of the smoke.

Utah has spectacular scenery and Bryce Canyon National Park is a location that simply took my breath away. I should go back there to photograph the hoodoos again without the smoke. Living in Utah rocks!

Life is good.


All of these images were taken with my trusty old Nikon D70 and a wide angle lens.

    Great work with these beautiful images. I first saw this sight at age 12 and it amazed me. More recently I viewed the sight in January and the snow made it all the more beautiful (and fewer people).

    I drove up to the edge of Bryce Canyon and was just sitting there, taking it all in, when a HUGE RV drove up and parked next to me. Suddenly, the door flew open and a family of Japanese tourists leaped out, each person holding a point and shoot camera at arm’s length in front of them. Fanning out along the rim, each family member quickly ran to a different spot, clicked their cameras a few times, then ran back, jumped into the RV and took off. I was too stunned to move…..

      Sadly there seems to be a lot of that. I am sure that some of the people I travelled with only saw Antarctica through a mechanical lens. Their loss.
