I had a moment to look through some of my photos from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. My trip to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison was greeted with rain for the first two days so it was a little disappointing for both my photography and for fishing with my dad. I still managed a few photographs and got in some fishing, but not the ideal conditions for either event. Dad and I cut our losses on Saturday and decided to drive up to Palisade, Colorado, which is known for their peaches and just venture up into Mesa County. Nearing Palisade, Colorado I was greeted with these fabulous cliffs and mountains called the Book Cliffs. The textures and the grains of these cliffs were amazing against the cloudy skies leftover from the storms. This is one place I have never been and made a note to myself to venture back to this area in the future and do some more exploring. This photo is pretty much out of the “tin” with very little processing. I used a circular polarizer to cut away some of the noon day glare and then just did some sharpening, removal of a couple of dust spots and cropped into a 16X9 format in Aperture. My kind of processing for this week. I’m getting some photographs ready for an upcoming art show and preparing for a trip near Aspen this coming weekend for some fall colors. I’m not sure I’ll have time to do much more blogging this week other than to share with you some details on the art show coming up later this week. Have a fantastic week!
