Been a while….

The sun was coming from over my right shoulder here, and really allowed the red rocks of the canyon to glow. I decided to get low and place the palms in the foreground for interest and contrast. The polarizer and ND grad filter helped keep the sky a nice deep blue.

Hi everyone.  I apologize for the long break away.  Life’s been busy and I haven’t had as much opportunity to shoot. I’ve also started a new job, and been going through some major life changes as well.  I wanted to share a couple of shots from a recent outing.  Getting back to landscape photos when I can.   I’m on a business trip to Las Vegas and managed to get out shoot at sunset in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. It’s a beautiful place that bears exploring. I didn’t have much time to explore, but managed to get a few shots I was happy with.  The shots are posted below.  Both were shot using the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, with EF 24-70 f2.8L lens. I

added a Tiffen circular polarizer, as well as a HiTech 1.2 Soft Edge ND Grad filter.

Comments and critique always welcome.  Thanks!

This shot is the opposite side of the canyon from the one above. The ND grad was even more important here, to keep the rock from going into a silhouette. The glow of the rocks comes from the sun reflecting off the opposite wall of the canyon.
