It’s great to be back here. We have a good group of photographers and a beautiful location to work with, so I’m looking forward to another three days of spectacular scenics and with luck good images.

I’ve been here before, taking a daylong tour in the open bed of a truck. This time we’re traveling in comfort in a van, densely packed so we can’t bounce too far and with a guide who can take us to the nicest places.

Here are a few shots from today. Don’t forget to click on the images to see them full size and with the right color.

 

John Ford used to sit here and watch the scenes unfold. What a place to work!

The Mittens are prominent in all of Ford’s movies. Here they are just after the sun sank below the horizon:

It’s a rule for photographers that they should turn around when they’re photographing something. Moose reminded us of that and we found this shot:

That’s it for today.
