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!

California Redwoods

I like the snow… but after a while enough is enough, so here’s a little break (even for those that don’t need it):

 

 

We’ve featured panoramas from this area of California before, and we probably will again, as I can never get enough of it!

On a separate note, some of you may have noticed our panoramas were not displaying correctly (as in not at all) for about a day last week.  The software glitch is now fixed!

I hope you enjoy this latest addition; please share if you do!

Best,

Martin
