Everyone says I have to have a blog (all that pesky SEO stuff) but writing lots of words about photography just makes no sense to me. So instead, for each post, I am going to spotlight a few pictures that are either freshly-hatched or recently discovered. Your reaction to them will determine if they graduate to the "grown-up" galleries up front.
Having visited Moab, Utah several times to shoot Arches National Park, I was looking for something fresh. That led me to the spectacular, affordable Red Cliffs Lodge. For the same cost as a generic chain hotel, you can support this hidden gem. About half-way between Denver and Phoenix, the lodge is nestled right on the Colorado River about 17 miles from Moab. The 35-mile-long valley it sits in is one of the most spectacular settings you could ever hope to photograph anywhere in the world. These were taken in early November. Let me know what you think.
