Canyonlands National Park, Utah

These images are were shot in Canyonlands National Park.  A lot of my landscape images require multiple trips back to get the right shot.  Most of the locations I visit look drastically different every month of the year.  Where the sun rises and sets, where the moon rises and sets, seasons, weather, and even air quality can affect the look and feel of the image.  Learning about these and how they pertain to the location is crucial to getting the right shot at the right time of year, and luck plays a role as well.  The first two were the result of seven different trips back to the park in order to get just the right shot.
