I am feeling refreshed, leaving Zion. I’m also very much looking forward to the weeks ahead. My next stop is Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake in Utah.
I am coming close to the half way point of my trip, and as we depart Las Vegas and head for our next spot, I can’t help but be excited. The next spot on our trip is Zion National Park, one of the darkest skies in America and with the Persiod Meteor Shower coming up, I can’t wait to get there.
I have for a long time now been in love with the Jeep Brand. One of the first things I did when moving out to Colorado, was look to buy a Jeep Wrangler so I can access the beautiful mountains I live nearby. However, on a budget the best I could do was close to a 20 year old Jeep that ended up being one problem after another. Ideally, I would have loved to have just bought a newer Wrangler as they are now a bit wider making them a little easier to drive long distances but starting at 35K they were a little out of my budget. Thankfully for me, Jeep just solved my problem.

Every time I go out to photograph any place, my first and foremost goal is to try and create something different, something not seen before, and something well just original. I’m sure most photographers have this in mind when they go out. For a long time I would purposely avoid popular photography spots because of this, but recently I have discovered that just because every photographer before you has taken a picture there doesn’t mean you can’t.
Ever since I have discovered Moab, Utah I have wanted to photograph it in the Winter. The snow against the red rocks, arches, and Moab’s amazing landscape’s have been calling my name ever since I saw the first picture of it. I have made a few attempts in the past, but have come up empty. This year, in the year of the El Nino, it was going to happen. The winter scenes from Moab were all over social media and I knew I had to get up there.
Have you ever seen a Western movie?
