Our day in Arizona is a long one. We started early from the grand canyon to head north to Page, Arizona. Today we were going to see some really cool natural wonders.
First up is Upper Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon you can walk through.
We meet in the tour office and they take us in a back of a pickup truck a few miles away to the canyon.
These canyons are formed when water rushes through them time and time again. Luckily we are in the dry season so there is no reason to fear this visit.
After we finished our antelope tour we thought we would stop for some authentic Mexican food. It was pretty underwhelming but at least we got in a full meal and dessert before moving on.
Next on the agenda is the Horseshoe Bend. You’ve probably seen it in travel articles and instagram. It really is that pretty in person.
Next on the agenda was supposed to be Monument Valley on the way to Moab. Unfortunately since it was late fall we lost our sun and lost our opportunity to see it.
I loved my trip out west so much that I am sure I will be back on that side of the country some day in the future. No reproductions of Forrest Gump today…..
Using the curve tool to do some interesting contrasting.
Some photos found and remastered. Originally taken in New York in the winter 2011.
I recently found some photos I took in 2011 during a trip to San Franscisco that I never edited. I had a chance this morning to edit them using Lightroom and the Tone Curve. Back when I took the pictures I thought they were so terrible that not even photoshop could save them. Using the Curve tool, I have made them look slightly better.
This was an example of framing using natural light. I was in a cave that was part of the Sutro Baths in San Francisco, California. There was a cave opening that allowed water to flow in and out. I took this opportunity to practice some framing. It is not a traditional frame but a frame no less.
This photo was taken on one of the trails that are near the Sutro Baths in San Francisco, California. I thought these trees had a great look to them. While editing the photo I created what looks very similar to an illustration you would see in a storybook.
