The fall color in Zion National Park this year was simply amazing. I spent a week there and the colors just kept getting better everyday. Up around Big Bend at the base of Angels Landing is a magnificent collection of trees and foliage that turn a multitude of colors. Rene Pirolt and I stopped a couple of times to shoot there (along with hundreds of other photographers!). This panorama was taken late in the week when the oranges and reds really started to show.

A little technical information about this shot. It is made by stitching together 23 individual images in Photoshop. I took the images with my 500mm telephoto lens (which always garners a few odd looks from people, they are sure there must be some wildlife out there they don’t see!). That long of a lens was great for zooming in on all the detail of the forest. The image will make for one very large, very detailed print! I will be printing one out for the house that will be 12 feet wide by a little over 2 feet high.

A Doubleheader from Horseshoe Bend

The sun breaks through foreboding storm clouds and lights the walls of the canyon at Horseshoe Bend outside of Page, Arizona.

Well, officially I guess a doubleheader happens in the same day. I apologize to all the baseball fans out there. After witnessing the awesome sunrise in the previous post, I left Continue reading “A Doubleheader from Horseshoe Bend”

Totally updated website

If you managed to find my blog from my website Monte Trumbull Photography, you probably realize that it has changed. For those that have been there before, it looks pretty much the same. In the background though, it is an entirely a different animal.

I desperately need to update my galleries with some new images, and before I started on that, I wanted to change them to be a little more “web friendly” (no flash needed). One thing led to the other and I decided to change everything. For those of you photographers out there, this website was created entirely in Lightroom using TTG Pages. The galleries were created with TTG Highslide Pro and the nested gallery indexes were done with TTG Auto Index. I have to say I am really impressed with the the Turning Gate (TTG) stuff. Check them out at: The Turning Gate.

Have a look around my site and let me know what you think!

Welcome to my blog!

Hi everyone. I am taking a big step (for me at least) in starting up this blog. Anyone that knows me personally realizes that I am not the most outspoken guy around. I have decided that maybe this will be a “kick-in-the-pants” for me. I plan to post a couple of times a month depending on my travels. I have over a year’s worth of images that I have not processed yet, so my goal is to start whittling away at those and post new images as I do. I would love to hear what you think. Please post a comment.
