Zion!

I love living in renovation dust as much as the next guy, but the Queen decided we need a break. We fly into Las Vegas tomorrow morning and then have a few hour drive to Zion National Park in Southern Utah. I've never been to the SW (SoCal doesn't count), so this will be a cool trip. We have one night in Vegas, and we'll be making stops at Bryce Canyon, the Grand Staircase and Antelope Canyon.

In preparation I've purchased some camera geekery for the trip: a new uberlight & small tripod, a new ballhead and filters. Along with my trusty 5D, wide angle lens and telephoto strapped to my back it should be a good trip. The Queen says she wants pictures blown up for hanging around the house upon our return, so I'll do my best to please her.

I can't wait to photograph Antelope Canyon - here is a sample of what it looks like.

Profit...looks like there is a ghost standing in the light...you can make out the arm and head. Almost looks photoshopped.
