I hope you are having a great week. Today’s image is from Canyonlands National Park. Ryan Wright and I headed out to Mesa Arch for sunrise and like usual there was a hand-full of photographers jockeying for the perfect spot to catch the sunrise from underneath Mesa Arch. Since I already had my ideal shot from a previous trip I thought I’d capture Canyonlands from a little different perspective, especially since the morning storm clouds were spectacular. I always wonder whether I should head back to the same iconic location when visiting but it always seems as if there is something new in store for me compared to the last time I visited. I believe as a working photographer you continually learn from past experiences which allow you to gain new perspectives on a scene. Techniques and tools you didn’t have last year allow you to make an image this year you couldn’t have made last year.
