Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef

Bryce Canyon National Park was the first proper post-jetlag, now-we’re-getting-sleep-and-have-balance hiking we did. We walked around for hours among the hoodoos and great towering cliffs, breathing deeply, lucky to be there at this point in time, enjoying the magnificence of the reserve.

Capitol Reef National Park

Another first. I hadn’t actually heard of Capitol Reef before this trip, a reserve built around a wrinkle in the earth called the Waterpocket Fold. We spent no time save a cursory drive through, on our way to the other side.

I took the opportunity to make a picture or two of our rental for the month – a silver Toyota Camry, which I found myself really, really enjoying. It’s a sure sign of age when excellent fuel economy, space and comfort become distinct pleasures. My pulse still quickens at the sight of a rice racer, but my body is appreciating, more than I thought possible, the kind of vehicle I can only describe as a dad-mobile.

  1. Hi Charlene !
    Superb pics – amazingly sharp and great compositions too !
    Would be great if you could include the camera & lens used with the exposure settings.

  2. Thanks for your reply Charlene.
    Do you save the settings for landscape photography in the camera so you could access them at will ?

    Also do you think the pic preview combined with the histogram is a better approach ?

    1. No, i don’t save any settings at all. I don’t use the pic preview, but i find the in-viewfinder histogram extremely useful, in both optical and electronic mode.
