Goblin Valley State Park

On our drive back from Snowmass, we also stopped by Goblin Valley State Park.  This place is wild!  This small valley floor is filled with 5-10 ft tall hoodoos.  It looks like a valley of giant deformed mushrooms.  We got there just about sunset, hiked around for a bit, and then I set up and shot some photos.  I shot most of the sunset with film, but ran out and finished with digital.  All the images shown here were shot on Fuji Velvia.

  1. Nice pictures. I love the saturation of velvia compared to digital.

    Good seeing you guys over the weekend.

  2. Wow – love the colors of the sunset – and the golden light on the rocks – particularly in the third photo.

  3. Thanks Rob! As do I. Digital is so easy, but film is more rewarding.

  4. Very nice! I especially like the last one, with the contrast between the dark sky and brilliant red.
