A photo from my USA trip. When coming from a flat country like Denmark, it is quite amazing to see mountains like this. To me they almost look like sculptures with all the colorful layers.
Grand Canyon II
Another photo from Grand Canyon. It is hard to imagine the size of this “hole”. At this point there is almost 20km across.
Found this old-school looking Texaco gas station near the Hole N’ a Rock place in USA.
Enter The Valley of Death
Even though I could barely take the extreme temperatures in Death Valley, USA, I just had to leave my air-con’ed car over and over again to take pictures. The raw and extreme environment was simply stunning in its own dramatic way.
Caves of Bryce Canyon
My favorite National Park in USA was without doubt Bryce Canyon. The extraordinary way the mountains are shapes, the beautiful read color and the compact nature of this place was simply fantastic.
This photo was taken in one of the cave-like places at the bottom of the Canyon. The light down there has a very red taint due to the colors of the cliffs that reflected the light.
Yosemite National Park – Sundown from Glacier Point
Yosemite National Park was probably the one of the Nationals that I favored the least. It is probably due to the fact that it is very similar to the nature I know from Sweden and Norway. We did however spend the evening on Glacier Point with brilliant talks by the Park Rangers and a beautiful sundown.
This photo is a combined panorama that shows the sundown as seen from Glacier Point.
San Francisco in Fog
This is a photo I took from the shore you get to if you cross the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The day i went there, a fog was covering most of the city. I think it gave it all a quite dramatic look. I played around with the photo a bit and decided on a Black&White version for the blog. I also did make a cross-posting version that looked like this:
Which one do you prefer?
Mesa Verde – Cliff Castle
One of the places that impressed me the most during my roadtrip in USA was Indian villages in the Mesa Verde National Park.
This photo shows the indian village called Cliff Castle. It was entirely hidden under a hanging cliff and used to house around 120 people back in year 1200.
Grand Canyon Panorama
My latest trip was to the USA where I spent a lot of time in the National Parks. This picture is a combined (quick) Panorama I made at the Crand Canyon South rim. The sun gave a quite hard light which is why some of it is a bith too light in the color (something I will fix when I have some more time
This little fellow didn’t seem to get bothered by me shooting some pictures of it.
