Took a little trip to Monument Valley and Arches National Park and Colorado back in September 2017 and was going thru pics and thought I would share a few of my favorites. I used a Canon EOS 80D for these shots. I did add a little filtering to raise the colors. If you ever get a chance you really need to check out this part of the U.S. It's incredible!

This one is actually on our way back thru Colorado with NO FILTERS! It was called the Blue Mesa Reservoir.

Is that balanced rock pic from Arches NP? I've got a pic of one similar. There were 2 balanced rocks, but one collapsed a few years back.
"Mexican Hat" is a classic.

Yes it is! I updated my original post. I've got so many pictures from that trip I got the locations confused. Arches NP was incredible as well.

No Camera can really do it justice - you need to be there.

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for the photos. Really nice area. Always wanted to go there when it's covered in snow.

We've done Zion Bryce and the North Rim in the Snow - All with Film so I don't have those images(Pictures) to share, the boxes full of those memories are stored deep in the attic.

BUT those Memories will never fade from my Minds Eye, as it's so hard to beat the contrast of the Snow on those Beautiful Rocks.

Yes, Winter is a great time to be in Utah.

JMHO,

On Edit found these on line;
