After a sharp turn in Zion's Upper Subway, you come to view of the “North Pole”, a log curiously propped against the canyon walls. It was carried by a flash flood a long time ago, which should give you an idea of their power. More: http://qtl.us/28QP1om

Das Boot turned out to be an impressive canyon, dark, narrow, with tall sculpted walls which make you feel you are moving deep in the earth, in serious and committed-looking canyoneering territory.

Back from a fun week through the canyons of Zion National Park. The Upper Left Fork ("Das Boot") is full of obstacles such as chilly pools and logjams. By keeping eyes fixed on them, it would have been easy to miss looking upwards to see this amazingly lighted wall. So many new images I wish I could have included in http://treasuredlandsbook.com ...

I made this image of Longs Peak framed by Rock Cut along Trail Ridge Road at dusk and illuminated rocks with a flashlight to bring out their color.

Trail Ridge Road is one of the ten Rocky Mountain National Park locations pictured and described in http://treasuredlandsbook.com

In the first part of the Subway, the canyon is open and enlivened by lush vegetation. The water in the canyon, fed by springs, is amazingly clear and not tool cold, as opposed to the potholes usually found in deep canyons, which can be murky and frigid. More: http://qtl.us/28QP1om

Story
Tagline
Photographer, author of treasuredlandsbook.com featuring all US National Parks
Introduction
I celebrate the splendor and variety of the natural and human heritage through my photography.  Favoring clarity and truthfulness, I seek to convey the emotions and the sense of connection that I experienced in some of the most beautiful corners of the earth, with the hope that aesthetic appreciation will lift our soul and eventually lead to awareness and respect for our planet and its inhabitants.

I am known for being the first to  photograph each of the 59 US National Parks and also for my website http://www.terragalleria.com with more than 30,000 images from around the world  - one of the most visited of all individual photographer's websites (~ 500,000 monthly visits). Print sales and image licensing from that website are the sole source of income for our family. 

My photographs have been published in more than 30 countries, in every possible media, and in two large photo books under my name: "Beautiful North America" (2007) and "Spectacular Yosemite" (2011). They have been the subject of museum and gallery solo exhibits on both US coasts. I have been profiled in more than a dozen press articles (eg, Boston Globe, National Geographic Explorer, Parks Magazine, Outdoor Photographer), and featured as a character in Ken Burn's film "The National Parks, America's Best Idea" (2009).
