A couple shots from this past weekend. Very interesting place to photograph, well worth the visit.

Thanks for looking,
Hatch

Gorgeous photos! And very strong on composition as well. The only thing I would suggest changing is the darker areas that seem a bit too dark on my monitor, especially with the first.

Both images are great.

This place is magnificent. Even if it was photographed million of times, I still like looking at photos taken there. I can only imagine how crowded it must be.

Many thanks David. Glad you enjoyed the images. Just before I started I calibrated the monitor, I can see details in the shadows on my end. I'll run the calibration again just to make sure. Thanks for the comments. :)

Thank you very much. Well, this time of year the crowds were at a minimal according to the guides. The canyon didn't feel overcrowded and we only had four of us on the photography tour in our group. I would say maybe 60 people went through will we were on the tour. Not horrible... the guide mentioned that this coming week.... last year... they pushed 10,000 people through in a week. :eek: that would not be fun.

Still... a nice place to shoot... and I'll head back for sure.

Thanks again,
Hatch

Great shots! I like the choice of white balance. The red tones work very well. How were the crowds?

Thank you very much. The crowds were very small. The guide mentioned we were there at a good time. Now.. this week... last year... they ran 10,000 people through the canyons. He said it was crazy. I think I just got lucky :) Looking to go back in March... crowds should be minimal... fingers crossed.

Thanks again,
Hatch

I loved the talk where they told us if we say we have to leave run to the car( which was parked head out) in case of a rain storm miles away the slot canyons can flood instantly some years back a bunch of tourists were washed away the only survivor was the guide. How were your high iso pictures in the canyon itself? It is such a beautiful and unusal place. Did you get to hoarse shoe also. There are so many photos buck list places around there Vermillion hills Glen canyon has a bunch of other slot canyons also hope you don't mind here are a few of mine

Nice shots. I did make it to Horseshoe Bend... 2x however, I did not have the WA lens I needed to capture the shots I had in mind. Plus.. time of day and harsh light wasn't in my favor. Next trip :)

Thanks for the comments.

I was there last year in late March, and it was a Zoo. We couldn't even get out of the canyon due to the number of groups coming down the stairs at the end. I've been there in January and February, and it was a lot nicer. Almost had the place to myself.

Beautiful, Hatch! :-D I want to go soon (before March I guess) and was wondering what its like down there. You used the words "guide" and "group"... are wierdos like me not permitted to wander around freely with a camera and tripod? It looks kind of maze like and mysterious. Is it easy to get lost? I have a a GPS because I'm pretty horrible with my sense of direction but not sure I'd able to get a lot of signal down there. Speaking of tripods, do you need one if you want to stay at ISO 100? I'd imagine I'd shoot the heck out of my 16-35 F/4L IS on my 5dIII or 6d.

You used to be able to do the "photographer tour" by yourself, but now that it's more commercialized and busier, you have to go with a guide. GPS won't work in there, as it can't see the satellites. I would say it's impossible to get lost. It's just a long, narrow hole in the ground with no branches or side canyons. You go in one end and walk to the other. You definitely need a tripod. at ISO 100, your shortest exposure will probably be .5s. In the darker sections, you could be 20s or more. 16-35 is a good lens for the canyon. I wouldn't recommend changing lenses in the canyon as it's very dusty.
