Yes it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I have been taking photographs but posting them on Facebook because it was easier and the immediate gratification without the discipline of writing a post is seductive isn’t it?
I took a long anticipated trip to and across southern Utah in October and attended a Landscape workshop in Moab. I have always wanted to pursue the art of Landscape photography but it is a daunting endeavor. Wildlife photography for me was more accessible both from a skill and opportunity standpoint. I learned at the workshop what I guess I always knew to be true; Landscape photography is not easy! Far from discouraged I actually left with a new sense of purpose. I will always be interested in shooting wildlife but I want to push myself to try to create landscape images I can be proud of too. So often I am in beautiful places looking for wildlife at sunrise and sunset that shooting landscapes in addition wildlife seems a natural right? We will see how this goes.
I visited Cathedral Valley on the way to Moab. It is a remote area in north Capital Reef National park. A stunning place I would like to visit again and of course shoot some Landscapes. These photos are of two of the most well known monoliths in the Valley, The Temple of the Sun and The Temple of the Moon.

Arches is also near Moab. I got some great landscape shots there a few years back. Keep going, you’re doing great!
Thank you Alli. 🙂
Very nice! I agree, landscape photography is not all that easy. But it seems that you are doing well. May I ask, are you photoshopping, or are the photos natural?
And, so glad to see you back on your blog.

I visited Utah a few years back but unfortunately it was before my DSLR so I don’t have any images as stunning as these.
Thank you so much Tracie! Utah is incredible. Visit again now that you are following your calling. 🙂
I will one day for sure. Hubby is going back to the States next month but unfortunately I won’t be going on this trip.
