So grateful to my friend for piloting the plane that took us over some of the most spectacular terrain on earth during three days of aerial photography. Here is a randomly picked view of Monument Valley at sunset as we flew above Hunt's Mesa this past week-end.

On the tragic death of a man in Zion's Subway a couple days ago, this video by Shane Burrows/Climb Utah gives an excellent idea of hiking the Subway ”from the top”
The accident happened at the 3:00 mark on the video, although you can't see the waterfall below. 
Very sad, I really shaken by this accident>
Last year, after finishing the last rappel at the 3:17 mark, I swam the pools to the left of the rappel on the video to look up a lovely little grotto behind the waterfall (very cold even in late August) where the man got entangled.

Back from a short backpacking trip to Utah. This is a pix of Parunuweap Canyon (east fork of the Virgin River), a remote section of Zion NP. Unfortunately I had to cancel my 3-day aerial photography trip over the Southwest that was to start tomorrow (planned for months with two friends) due to the haze generated by wild fires. A real bummer.

Partial view of my exhibit at the La Jolla Festival of the Arts. Located just past the entrance, the 40'x10' quad booth was the largest in the show.

Looking through my images of the Canadian Rockies, I found this forgotten pano I shot of Lake Maligne a few years back with a borrowed Hasselblad. I'm thinking of printing it big for my Canadian customers when the show season restarts in November in the Palm Springs area. Here is a "tiny" version.

I took this picture of my wife Patricia and my dog Sky with the Nex 7 and the awesome Zeiss 24mm lens - the combo I'm using for backpacking and long day hikes.

I've just returned from backpacking Buckskin Gulch and Paria Canyon, 45 miles total in 6 days with a rest day at Shower Spring. Did an overnighter at Valley of Fire on the way back.
