Re: Interriors with XF 16/1.4

I really like the sense of slightly faded while still retaining rich color.  A nice balance.

Re: The "Hammer!"

Your photo prompted me to wonder if I had captured the "hammer" back in 2016 or if it was even there. I like your composition more but here is what I got in 2016, so at least it was still there then. You never know when something like that is going to disappear.

You are right. We visited Arches NP on the same trip and saw Wall Arch. A few years later someone sauntered by and noticed it had collapsed. Yup. I know. Some of you may be thinking about an obvious pun........that day the park was suffering from "Fallen Arches."

My daughter appreciating the sunset, for the first time really I think.

A vacation home from the first half of the 20th century (1930s maybe) waiting for the owner to arrive

A lucky conjunction of low tide, evening light and 'after the storm weather' - a moment of rare beauty in my eyes, not sure I was able to capture it; for me it's a memorable evening on the beach!

Storm Clouds Over Mesa

Caught the dramatic last of the sunset happening out my window and grabbed the XT-2 and ran outside to catch the scene in my back yard. As Bob mentioned, we're actually having a monsoon season in the Southwest this year. The clouds and rain have been wonderful. Never tire seeing the many moods of the light on the mesa.

A couple nights later we had a rainbow. Didn't get a well-composed shot. Rain kept hitting my lens. Cool little hole in the clouds though. Glad to have a WR camera and lens.

Thanks for taking a look.  I continue to think about going full-frame.  For now, my X-E4 seems to be OK though.

Back in 1996 I and my horse were qualified and attended the Race of Champions which was an invitational 100 mile endurance ride. That year it was held outside of the little town of Torrey Utah. We went out early and spent a month in Torrey, the horses at the ranch of Doc and Dotty Weaver and while we stayed at an RV campground. The road into Dotty's place came out at the intersection of US 24 and UT 12. Across 24 was Capital Reef NP. I did many a conditions rides in Capital Reef. Beautiful country to see and even more beautiful from horseback - if you don't get lost. These reefs were used by Butch Cassidy and his sidekick the Sundance kid and the hole in the wall gang to escape the law. Driving South on 12 you had Capital Reef on your left and about half way to Boulder, UT you had access to Escalante Grand Staircase - another area we spent hours in on horseback. One day we stopped for a burger at a hole in the wall in Boulder. The claim to fame was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid frequented the place when in the area. They you came to Bryce Canyon. A lot like Capital Reef except the reefs had eroded into sandstone formations. I we trailered down a rode in Bryce and as Ebenezer Bryce described the canyons name after him, "a Hell of a place to lose a cow."

Nice shot - the snow or hail pretty much tells the story of that area.

Good story and a great experience.

Bob

I went back and found a late afternoon shot at Bryce from 1984 when we lived in Colorado.  Taken on a Mamiya RB67 with a 127 mm  lens on Kodak PanX.

A great find, Jonathan.

No lack of gnarly tones and textures.

And well captured.

I dropped FF and not thinking about going back, so far APS-C is enough for my needs (like small  excavator)

Moreover, for me APS-C is much better.

Rim Shot

Your fine shot brings back some nice memories Bob. I took this one at Bryce back in October 2013, en route from a backpacking trip in Grand Staircase Escalante Nat'l Monument back to Las Vegas for our flight home. We only stayed at Bryce for an hour or so, but still it was a memorable experience.

I used a Sony NEX-5n, my first mirrorless camera, and some manner of manual focus Minolta 50mm lens on an adapter, which in retrospect I'm shocked that I carried on a multi night backpacking trip.

That's a good one.  I have a ton of Utah images of Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Grand Escalante, and Arches.  Maybe I'll share a few in the coming weeks if for no other reason, inspire people to visit.  Utah is an amazing place.  And then maybe some northeastern Arizona.....Antelope Canyon maybe????
