Waikiki Beach

And now for something completely different!
 

This has nothing to do with Utah of course, but I thought it would be a nice change of pace. The panorama above is from the city of Honolulu, Hawaii.  Not far up the island of Oahu’s eastern shoreline, Kahana Bay offers a much more serene view:

 

 
Have a Great Day!

The Milky Way over Red Canyon

Red Canyon, just to the west of Bryce Canyon in Utah, is the setting for this 360° panorama of the Milky Way rising over the eastern horizon:

In this nighttime view, the canyon plays “second fiddle” to the Milky Way above. In daytime hours the bright red soils in this canyon provide a stunning contrast to the green pines which dot this landscape.
 
Have a Great Day!

Slot Canyon-Wire Pass

A slot canyon near the southern border of Utah: 

 

Some of you have written wondering if I fell off of the cliff while shooting my previous panorama, and that perhaps my camera was found and someone was kind enough to stitch the images together.  The reality is nothing nearly so dramatic; I’ve simply had a busy spring shooting standard 2 dimensional photos.  I hope you enjoy this latest offering from a spot that is an easy hike if you’re ever in the Kanab, Utah area.

Thanks!

Horseshoe Bend

The Colorado River makes many twists and turns. This particular meander is a few miles south of the Utah Border, and north of its entrance to the Grand Canyon:

The river lies some 1000 ft. below this overlook, which is an easy hike from the roadway.  It’s always an interesting experience to visit these sites and stay until it’s dark, but make sure to stay away from the edge!
