Vivid: Capturing the Changing Lights, Shadows, and Vivid Colors (WPC)

The scene continually changes as light plays off the rocks and clouds,

creating shadows and contrasts.

The permutations are unceasing,

and the moods are without end.

This is a land to humble the soul.

    • The first one was one of the few shots that I took with Bill that I mentioned in my previous 5 photo, 5 stories. The second one was taken when we were there waiting for the sunset. This young lady was there enjoying the grand view all by herself. Thank you, Patrick! πŸ™‚

  1. What brilliant photos, Amy. I like the second one best – it feels like I’m actually flying above the canyons up in the sky. Soaring, flying high, higher…. πŸ˜€

      • I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve such praise but I’ll take it. Thank you. We are planning a spontaneous trip there- probably next weekend. I am renting a Fuji X-T1 and the south rim is only about a 4 hr drive away. This trip will be spontaneous only in that we are not making reservations for a stay. we’ll play that part by ear.

        • 4 hr drive away, I envy you. We couldn’t get the hotel reservation which we wanted to stay, tried to book two month before the trip. We saw many tour buses (from CA, Iowa, AZ…), they haul over 100 tourists each. It’s so different from when we visited GC some 15 years ago.
          They don’t allow private cars driving in all the roads in GC, but the bus service is free. Tour bus (like the sunset tour) costs $$ depending where you want to go. I was happy with the service. If you don’t stay in any of the hotel in GC, you may need to park at the visit center. Hope this helps. Are you going to visit Antelope Canyon?
