Hidden Canyon

Yep, Dan thinks he's a large format photographer again (although, in my defense, the full res version of this looks sweet too). This was a ways up Hidden Canyon in Zion National Park. As the mouth of this canyon is hundreds of feet above the valley floor, the trail up involves sections cut out of the canyon wall, with lots of slippery sand on the rock, and chains to hold onto. Not as exposed as, say, the final cables climbing Half Dome, but still out there. But the reward was worth it, there'll be more pictures from this stretch.

Dan also needs to start previewing his images on CRTs rather than using LCDs with a high gamma.

heh.. some sites come up on my laptop looking all bland, when I'm really supposed to see all these subtle colors... oh yeah.. maybe if I tilt it like this, and stand upside down like so, and maybe turn off the lights with my foot.. ah.. now I can see that light green and yellow.

I like my laptop, but I really wish websites would use a little more contrast.

Beautiful pic BTW.. from what I can see :)
