SAND HOLLOW STATE PARK

  1. Sand hollow state park is near Hurricane, Utah, in the south west corner of the state. It is a new park and relatively small. I made my first visit to the park yesterday and shot these images.

    Okay Gordon, I officially hate you! :)

    These blow me away - incredible, and I really do mean incredible, scenes really beautifully captured. The range of scenery in that first image is simply impossible.

    I'm never talking to you again.*

    * Until the next time.
     
  3. Neil, you are a total crack up. Thanks for your very expressive comments and for taking the time to look at these images. It is a pretty place but the long lens compressed the distance from the snow capped peaks to the red rock desert lake. Again, thanks for your kind comments.
     
  4. Wow Gordon...

    Fantastic images. Well captured! If I'm ever in that area of the country again, please take me there... :)

    Okay Gordon, since I'm going to be a new neighbor to that part of the states your pictures are making it easier to get used to the idea of a move.

    I'm also think that 17mm is not wide enough and I might need to pick up a 12-24mm before the move.

    You sure have an eye for landscapes, Gordon

    Only thing I would say critically would be that using a Grad ND filter on the 1st might've preserved more of the snow highlights up on the tip of that mountain. And to think I've got nothing but winter wheat fields to photograph around here! :roll: Very nicely done, Gordon!

    What the matter, Todd?

    Don't they have any camera stores out in Idaho? :roll: :lol: :p
    Sorry, couldn't resist that one!

    Re: What the matter, Todd?

    Just to be on the safe side I'll pick up the 12-24mm from Sunny Schick when I stop through your part of town on my way to Idaho. :p
     
  10. Beautiful!

    Superb compositions.

    Apart from which, it snowed again here last night so I need this forum for some vicarious sun.

    Gordon,

    Looks like another place I'll have to visit.
    I was in Utah when I was 12, but at that age you don't appreciate scenery like that.

    Thanks for posting.
     
  13. Thanks Todd, Frank, Steve, Clive, Gale and Patrick. I really appreciate your comments. It is a pretty park and one that I plan to visit the next time I have some people picture to do. It would make a great wedding image spot.

    Beautiful pics Gordon and great exposure. I wish I could be near such beauty, but I guess I soon will. I'll be going to Ft. Davis TX in May for my 15th Texas Star Party, an astronomy event. Well keep up the good work.
