La Verkin at Dusk

La Verkin at Dusk
This is a 30 second long exposure of the landscape around La Verkin, Utah on the way to Zion National Park. I’m starting to shoot everything in RAW with my Nikon D40x and this was a test shot that I liked enough to post on Desert Dream! :) Wait until I get around Canyon Lands in the next few weeks!

Sunset at Zion's National Park

Sunset at Zion's National Park
This is shot from the FZ5 at around 300mm. Zion National Park is about 26 miles from where I took this picture, which was in Hurricane, Utah. It was hand held too, which means Panasonic’s image stabilizing technology works pretty well! I love the Panasonic line of cameras. My only criteria is that they have a Leica lens! I’m very happy with my little FZ5! :)
