The Sentinel (in color)
A lone tree snag stands guard over the rock formations at Monument Valley in northeast Arizona. This is the color version of the monochrome image I posted a while back. You can find that image here. I can never quite decide which I like better. This was shot during an overnight guided trip I took with some friends up to Hunt's Mesa. If you ever get the opportunity to take this trip, by all means do it! It is rather expensive, but I found it to be worth every penny. We were very fortunate…

Soldiers Pass Trail Sedona AZ, Yavapai County, Arizona — by Robyn Lisone
This was a very short hike up to the Seven Sacred Pools, part of the Soldiers Pass Trail. Not often filled with water, the "pools" are...
Mono Lake, California and north end of the milky way. The light on the horizon comes from light pollution of some neighboring communities, but I like the glow. 4 shots, 1 exposure for the night sky, exif posted here, and then 3 focus stacked shots for the tufas which were taken right after sunset. I was wedged in between that fore most tufa and another behind me, with the camera very low to the ground looking up. Difficult shot to take in the dark!

Storm Clouds Over Mt. Sneffels
I took a spring trip up to the Sneffels subrange of the San Juan Mountains to photograph the newly leafed out aspens and got lucky that a spring storm dumped snow on the high peaks. I caught this view of Mt. Sneffels late in the day just as the storm began clearing. I had high hopes for a spectacular sunset that evening only to have them dashed by pesky clouds hanging on the western horizon, thus killing the light for the remainder of the evening. My typical luck!! You can read more about…
I was at Zion on Tuesday and the waterfalls and rivers were raging and everything was incredibly green. I've been there many times before, but never in the springtime to see the waterfalls, so I was just blown away by the size of this one near the Temple of Sinawava. It was hard to find a clean composition with the waterfall and the virgin river, so I settled on this one without the river. I also tried to hike to the subway, but I only made it halfway before turning back. The river was…

This pool in the BLM's Paria Canyon Wilderness reflects the sculpted sandstone that water helped form, and then shape. (Technically this formation lies in Arizona, but the trail head is in Utah!) This and other sites that I've visited have been documented in my blog over the past several years: www.activesole.blogspot.com. Many of the sites are well known, but the timing of your visit to catch the best light can make all the difference in your results. Some of the sites require significant…
