Palouse River Canyon, Washington
The 167 mile long Palouse River flows toward the Snake River. The Palouse carved this canyon in this area sculptured by the Missoula Floods of the last ice age. The geologic features of the canyon are full of evocative names; the Sentinel Bluffs flows of the Grand Ronde Formation; the Ginkgo Flow of Wanapum Basalt.
Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona
This is an interesting and much-photographed spot above the Colorado River. The water color is gorgeous, and you can stand and appreciate it as long as you aren't afraid of heights. It's not such an easy place to photograph. You are dependent on the weather to produce an interesting sky, and there's not much you can do with the foreground. I liked the place anyway,
Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona
This image was composed from 25 overlapping photos. I liked the gentleness of the light at this point above the canyon. This is one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes in the United States, and as you see in the foreground, Navajo families continue to farm here. Further down the canyon is the White House ruins, site of the famous 1942 Ansel Adams photograph.
