I will be in the Moab area through Friday this week. I have been to Moab many times and it is a very cool areas for photographers to visit. Amazing how many are right now. My goal this trip is to shoot things differently. Like yesterday I shot everything with a long lens. The picture above was shot with the NEW 240mm lens from Phase One on a Phase One DF+ camera and IQ180 back. Absolutely amazing image quality. I will be shooting all week trying different lenses and or different angles to give me images that others don’t usually shoot or see. Game on.
This is hot from one of the many overlooks in Canyonlands National Park, UT. I love exploring this area and it is only a short trip from Moab. If you hit it right and catch storms in the background, you’ll be blessed with incredible light and clouds. I hit it on a lucky day. Shot with an IQ camera on a ALPA Camera.
I love traveling the back roads. So, after shooting to my hearts content in Moab, I decided it was time to travel some back roads. These involved crossing over a few small mountains. This field we found doing this trip and the sun was beginning to set giving nice light. Shot with an IQ180 this image is super sharp and has great color tonal range.
On a trip to Moab with a number of my photographer friends we took a four wheeler ride to the top of some very rocky hill and at the end we were given a contrasting and dramatic view of the La Sal Mountains that are quite visible from Moab. I like the way the foreground contrast with the distant mountains. Shot with a Phase One IQ180.
This is a shot of the Canyonlands outside of Moab. This is a pretty typical shot and a lot of people could take this shot. Fortunately for me that day this storm rolled in and I was shooting from the same height as the storm and thus I had these cool grey clouds on the top of my image yet sunshine in the canyon. This is one of a series of very dramatic pictures taken during a 15 minute window of the storm. Sometimes you get your best pictures in not so desirable condition.
I love the Moab area as it has many location for photography and a few great parks nearby. If you want arches or canyons you can find both in Moab. This shot is from n overlook in Canyonlands with a storm coming. Shot with a Phase One P65+ it just has amazing detail.
Near Moab Utah there are two incredible National Parks, Canyon-lands and Arches. In Arches there are some incredible views. This is one of them. I messed around with it in an program called TOPAZ and turned into a painterly look. Just something different and it looks cool.
