I recently completed a workshop with John Barclay and Mitch Dobrowner at Capitol Reef National Park, Utah. This view is from a plateau cliff overlooking a valley 400-500 feet below. My knees were shaky as I got near the edge. My tripod saved me. First, it was a nice brace to have between me and the edge. And second, there was no way I could have hand-held a shot with my wobbly knees.
My focus for this workshop was to work on my black and white skills with Mitch Dobrowner. However, when I saw this variety of color, I could not pass the opportunity to share this experience in color.
The view from Skyline Point was breathtaking. It is a 270 degree panorama of a colorful unearthly landscape. The point is a sheer cliff falling down to the valley down below.. Approaching the point, one has no idea that the plateau stops abruptly to this scene.
