  • Calf Creek Falls

    Calf Creek Falls is located in south central Utah near the town of Escalante, Utah. The three mile hike from the parking/camping area along Calf Creek is filled with interesting side subjects and is then capped with the magnificent water fall. The pool is usually filled with waders, but, they seem to try to get out of the way of the camera. I exposed Fujichrome Velvia film at f32 @ ¼ second. Equipment: Tachihara 4×5 field view camera, Schneider 150mm f5.6, Bogen 3028 tripod, Pentax spotmeter.

  • Delicate Arch

    Camera gear weighing around 60 lbs, a 1 ½ mile climb up to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park in Utah made me wonder if it could be worth the hike. It turned out to be well worth the trip. The climb down in the dark over slickrock not so much. I photographed the arch on Fujichrome Velvia at f32 @ 1/15 second.

  • Desert Sunset

    I captured Monument Valley, the iconic symbol of the old west, during twilight which only lasts for only few minutes.

    The early morning wind caused the clouds to rip across the buttes of Monument Valley in Utah, at a high speed which caused me to use a high shutter speed. I exposed Fujichrome at f/16 @ 1/30 second. Equipment: Tachihara 4×5 field view camera, Schneider 150mm f5.6, Bogen 3028 tripod, Pentax spotmeter.
  • Oak Creek Crossing

    Red Rock Crossing, also known a Oak Creek Crossing located near Sedona, Arizona is one of the most majestic places in Arizona. The red rock crossing leads you into the cathedral rock formation. A great composition. I exposed Fujichrome film At f32 @ ⅛ second. Equipment: Tachihara 4×5 field view camera, Caltar 90mm f6.8, Bogen 3028 tripod, Pentax spotmeter.
  • Slot Canyon

    Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon located near Page, Arizona, is a popular destination for nature lovers, photographers and sightseers. While in a gallery in Wyoming, I first saw a print from Antelope Canyon. It took me years to find out where this place was. I finally made a trip there in the early 90s. Members of the Navajo Nation charged $5.00 dollars for access for the day. Today, it costs around $100.00 for a hour of exploration. Exposures and composition can be difficult. I exposed Fujichrome at f32 for 8 seconds. Equipment: Tachihara 4×5 field view camera, Komura 210mm f6.3, Bogen 3028 tripod, Pentax spotmeter.
