As If You Were There

I love it when new technology comes in and allows reviving some old favourite photos. Most of the time, it's a new way of processing photos, the introduction of HDR, enhanced color management, etc. which are all nice but very subtle and usually only noticed by a trained eye. In this case, I came across ...

The Spectre of Antelope Canyon

Upper Antelope Canyon is most famous for its light beams coming into the canyon. They are particularly visible when particles such as dust or sand is floating in the air and are great photo opportunities. It's maybe now even more famous after a press release announcing that a photograph taken by Peter Lik allegedly sold ...

Mountain on Fire

Sentinel Bridge is another location in Yosemite National Park made famous by Ansel Adams. It's a great place to enjoy a beautiful view of Half Dome reflecting in the Merced river, especially at sunset when the iconic mountain is glowing under the warm evening light.

Balanced Rock

The improbable position of Balanced Rock in Arches National Park, sitting there on top of a pile of rocks makes this place one of the main attractions of the park. Located not too far from the entrance, it's the perfect introduction to this incredible National Park, which hosts many more wonders.

White Pocket’s Magical Mirror

Like in a fairy tale, this mirror pool suddenly appeared out of nowhere, thanks to the brief thunderstorm that had me worried the photo session would be spoilt. Instead, it made the place look even more beautiful with glowing rocks and impromptu ponds reflecting the beautiful scenery.

The Final Judgment

Caught by the sublime light just before leaving the Lower Antelope Canyon, I must confess I had an awesome time in there! I had been dreaming about going there for over a decade and it was even better than I expected!

Fins Before Arches

Fins are impressive formations that you can easily find in Arches National Park. As a matter of fact, fins are the stage preceding the formation of an arch, after rainwater dissolves the sandstone, widening cracks. A beautiful collection of fins can be found on the Double-O Arch hike at the end of the hike. Check ...
