Behind the Scenes

I look into what it's like being a landscape photographer. I do this for my parents who always say that I don't share enough photos of myself.

This is a photo from my 2017 trip through Grand Canyon. Dave Edwards is pointing the way. Dave once said to me "if I get quiet, it means you're doing o.k." At one point I hadn't heard from Dave in at least an hour, so I turned around to chat with him and found him sleeping in the back of the raft. I guess I did ok for that last hour?

My run in Lava Falls Rapid started out ok, but things quickly changed when the river grabbed the boat and spun us 180 degrees and suddenly I was rowing backwards. My attempt to get us spun back around was unsuccesful and we hit the next wave broadside. You can see Art and I doing our best to “high-side” into the wave to keep us from flipping. I guess it worked because we finished the run right side up. Thanks to Joe Bennion for grabbing this shot.

Sally and I are hiking the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park. This hike has to be one of the best in the American Southwest. You have to walk in the river, and we've had water up to our chests at times, but it's so worth it!
