USA South West Photographic Tour October – November 2014

During our two day stay in Page Arizona, I gave the group some free time. Many wanted to take advantage of the time and booked the Upper Antelope Canyon Tour. I had pre-arranged for all on the tour to have a boat trip up along the narrow Canyon on Lake Powell and also a guided tour through Lower Antelope Canyon the following day. Six of us decided to do an all day optional tour right up by 4WD into the Paria Wilderness to a wild an totally amazing area called White Pocket. After 2 hours on a bumpy sand drift track we arrived at White Pocket and were totally awed. Fantastic forms and shapes with Brain Rock and Sandstone in whites, Creams, Yellows, Pinks and Reds. We had nearly three hours here and I hardly wanted to rest for the ten minutes it took to swallow down a sandwich for lunch! This is a photographic experience like no other! I have uploaded a sample of the many images I took here and have re-worked some into night shots because the colours and shapes are awesome. This is photographic art at its best…. My sincere thanks to Kyle at Vermillion cliffs Tours. He runs a fantastic tour company and comes so highly recommended…If you can possibly do this tour anytime you visit the USA…its is one not to be missed. Check out the website at…www.vermilioncliffs.net    Kyle offers many varied tours including the famous Wave Rock and I will definitely consider doing a tour with Kyle again in the future….without a doubt!

    WOW! I chuckle at the thought of you managing to stop and eat when you would have been so excited.
    Did you end the day with “It doesn’t get better than this!”?
