Home of the Brave

In landscape by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Cisco, Utah was a stop on my first NXNW trip in 2013. Cisco was a ghost town with a few of the town’s original building still standing, some old cars and, on the edge of town, a couple of trailer homes. Of course we had to stop here again on this second visit. This little …

Playing The Slots

When I saw slot canyon on the trip’s agenda, I was thrilled. I’ve always been fascinated by images from the famed Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona, and of course I would still love to make a trip out there, I can scratch slot canyon off of my photography bucket list. This particular canyon is located …

While most of the locations we photographed were off the beaten track, we did hit a couple of easily accessible spots. One of them was Sunset Point Overlook in Capitol Reef National Park. We arrived a good hour and a half before sunset in order to secure parking spots in the relatively small lot. After …

Fog Over Fruita

Every time I’ve ever gone on vacation I’d eventually reach the point where I’ve had enough. “This was a great vacation,” I’d think, “but I am ready to go home. I want to sleep in my own bed. I’m ready to get back to work.” Ok, I’ve NEVER said I’m ready to back to work. …

Canyonlands

My newly found obsession with panoramas continues, and shows no sign of waning. In this case, it is a simple panorama crop of an image from Canyonlands National Park, Utah, captured way back in 2013 on my first NXNW trip. I specifically decided to revisit this particular folder in my Lightroom catalog because in a …

Burntcoat Head

I have to confess to sometimes shooting panoramas out of laziness or indecision. When there is a majestic scene in front of me and the light and conditions are changing rapidly, I can be tempted to sweep the scene, grabbing as many pixels as possible, then process and crop to taste from the comfort of …
