this time Last year
misc: One year and a couple of days ago, though it seems much more recently, I was standing in the Grand Canyon in Arizona and taking pictures like the one above and marvelling at the staggering beauty of tthis huge planet level geological scar. The sheer scale of the place, the colour of the red Earth, the wildlife... To think I captured it even partially on my old Olympus Stylus is surprising at all. I would be very much interested in going back to the GC now that I have some serious gear and I am taking some serious pictures.

I went to Niagara Falls this year in March around my birthday. In our room in the Bed and Breakfast that we stayed at, there was a large picture book of Ansel Adams - the noted black and white landscape photographer. I really like his work and think that I should start to convert some of my landscapes to BW. Including some of the ones that don't quite make it for me in colour. Hence posting this image taken from the South Rim of the GC on November 20th, 2004. I also included an image in my 'book' that I often have with me of the Rose Blanche lighthouse (the one that was at the Western Fair ) that I converted to BW as well. I like it as much as the original.

I was also prompted to go through the GC pictures again because while watching the relatively uninspiring Amazing Race -Family Edition yesterday, they were in Utah and visited Monument Valley Utah and flew over places like John Ford's Point in a Bell Jetranger, and rapelled off of Gemini Bridges in Moab. That looks like some serious countryside. One of the team members mentioned how boring Utah is "100s of thousands of miles of nothing". Yeah LuSeRs.

Utah is on my list for next year I think. Look out Mormons! :P

Carpe Diem
