White House Ruin

White House Ruin

The White House Ruin was one of the locations I had to see on our trip the Four Corners region. We were unable to take our tour in the bottom of Canyon De Chelly due to high winds. I shot this image from the south rim of the Canyon. I found out about this location by studying Ansel Adams prints in school.

Below is Ansel’s shot taken from the canyon floor.

Dreams Of Shiprock

Dreams Of Shiprock

 

The Shiprock formation is in the far northwest corner of New Mexico, just east of the Arizona border. It’s the most prominent feature of the area. For some reason the memory is etched on my mind. When I think of returning to the Four Corners region, it’s Shiprock that I want to see.

The original image had a heavy cast of haze. With the new Dehaze tool in Lightroom CC 2015, I was able to extract a useable image.

Totem Poles And Yei Bi Chei

Totem Poles and Yei Bi Chei

 

Monument Valley is one of my favourite locations in the American Southwest. Taken during the Blue Hour, the sun had just set. This picture was shot on a Full Moon Photo Tour booked through Goulding’s Lodge. Taking a tour with a licensed Navajo guide allows you access restricted areas not open to the general public.

Sunlight gleams off the side of some irises growing on a hillside at Reader Rock Gardens on Cemetery Hill in Calgary.

Late afternoon at the Reader Rock Garden the cross lighting throws back light on a bed with Irises.
