A Slight Detour

On the way home from Vail, Sarah and I decided to drive down the Colorado River from Cisco to Moab. It was a great chance to stretch our legs, get some exercise, and of course, take some photos. We ended up stopping at the Fisher Towers.


When approaching them from the east, you come around a corner and the next thing you see are these wild sandstone formations, with La Sal Mountains in the background.  Although I shoot that photo, due to the haze it didn’t come out so well.

I also wanted to try adding some new photos to my stock portfolio. Sarah put on some running gear, and after doing her own 45 min run, ran a few sections of the Fisher Towers trail for me. I think I still need to work on some creative angles and shots that show more action, but it’s a start.


Most of the afternoon I dealt worrying about the cloudiness. It was frustrating for me because the sky tended to be over exposed. This is something I really need to work on. Once we started driving out of Moab, we did enjoy an amazing sunset. I was doing what I’m sure most photographers do during these evenings; watch my rear view mirror more than the road. As we were driving away from Moab and La Sal Mountains, we were privileged with beautiful views of Arches and the snow capped mountains. Eventually, I had to pull over, although well after passing Arches.


So that was how I ended my weekend. A fun detour through Moab to get some photos and enjoy the sun. I leave you with one more shot. I am planning on adding a panoramic gallery to my website. I’m not sure when it will happen, but I figure I’d leave you with a panoramic shot of the last rays of light. I actually missed a BEAUTIFUL shot just before this when the sun was reflecting off the clouds and coloring most of the eastern view a rich pink color.
