    Hello all,

    I just returned from my vacation to Arches National Park and Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. I took over 800 pictures and have only had the chance to process two of them. Anyway, I thought I'd share the two that I did process.

    If you haven't been to Arches National Park, I suggest you pack up and get your butt out there (before it gets to hot). It's truly an incredible experience hiking around the park and playing around the Arches. :mrgreen:

    As always, comments are welcome :D

    Awesome shots!
    Southern Utah is awesome.
    I've been to Arches, Powell, Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands and Moab... all awesome areas.

    Thanks-

    We had a great time. Zion and Bryce are next (next spring hopefully). We were going to go this fall but decided to head out to Vermont instead.

    Cool shots... good comps. I have lived in northern UT for almost two years and I haven't been down there yet! Planning to go this summer, can't wait.

    Nice captures. I especially like the moon included in the 2nd shot.

    Nice capture and I'm regretting not getting over to Canyonlands NP. We were going to get over there after Dead Horse State Park but the winds were terrible and after getting sandblasted for over two hours at Dead Horse it was time to head back for a beer.

    After seeing your other work here on TPF, I look forward to seeing what you come back with.

    Thanks for the comment. Man, I wish I lived in the Utah, Northern Arizona area. I'd be out there all the time.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Thanks! I think I'll get to Zion and Bryce in the spring of 09.


    I had a 16x24 of the Turret Arch shot done on Metallic Paper from Mpix and it looks great.

    Hey m1a1fan.
    It looks like your photo's have been removed. Just wondering if you could re-post them? I'd love to see them since I'm heading down there this summer. :wink:
