Spider Rock – Canyon De. Chelly

Spider Rock - Canyon De. Chelly
This is Spider Rock, an 800 foot pinnacle of sandstone on the South Rim of Canyon De Chelly. The majority of images shot on this trip were on 35mm film. So I will be scanning more of the prints. The color of the digitized file is not as exact as the print. I used a strong warming filter along with a polarizer when taking these images. There is vignetting on these images from the use of those filters.

Hey guys, I spent two days out in Navajoland, over in Window Rock and Canyon De Chelly. Many places in this canyon hold deep significance to the Navajo people. It was referred to as the Navajo Stronghold.

I worked in the Grand Canyon this past winter as a tour guide taking folks into the inner gorge of the canyon. Doing this daily, I took photos of rafting boats passing by. We’d often shout into the gorge and the rafters would respond by waving back. That job is done now and there is no guarantee that I’ll go back next winter. Why? Because of the long work days that the job entailed. I loved working out in the middle of nowhere, but I didn’t have enough free time to pursue what I love – photography.
