A Sense of Scale

In Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

While packing my gear for this trip I had to plan to cover the widest possible angle to the longest. We would be photographing narrow slot canyons (stay tuned for those images), long canyon views, and everything in between. For most situations, my Olympus 12-100mm (24-200 Eq), 4.0 Pro provided plenty of coverage, but I …

Hurrah Pass

In Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Hurrah Pass was the sunrise location on one of our epic off-road adventure days. It was a beautiful location that I think would have been equally suitable for a sunset shoot. While I did set up a wider shot, I decided to focus (no pun intended) more on the morning light bouncing off the distant …

Pre-Dawn at Goblin Valley

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Goblin Valley may not be at the very top of my list of favorite locations from the recent NXNW trip to Utah — I think Marlboro Point holds the top spot, but it is at the very top of the list of locations that delivered the highest number of “keeper” images. That is, of course, …

Gooseneck

In Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

Gooseneck on the Colorado River was a wonderful stop on our drive through Canyonlands and the adjoining BLM areas. It was a spot where you could use all focal lengths, from a fisheye to the longest telephoto in your bag. And I used them all. Well, not all of mine. I had to borrow my …

Marlboro Point

In landscape, Uncategorized by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Way back in the spring of 2013 a bunch of intrepid NXNW adventurers were alarmed out of bed at 3:00AM. We fueled up on Folgers coffee (instant, of course), piled into a couple of (allegedly) 4WD capable vehicles and set out to find Marlboro Point, a legendary (so we were told) sunrise location overlooking Canyonlands. …

First Light on the Butte

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier2 Comments

The final morning on the trip for me was at this lone butte in the desert, which just happened to have this little pond — or puddle — in front of it. Maybe not *right* in front of it; the butte was at least a mile beyond where we were set up. I say the …

Goblin Valley Dawn

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Of all of the amazing places we visited on the trip, and all the incredible landscapes we saw, Goblin Valley State Park, outside of Hanksville, Utah, had to be the strangest and most interesting. The valley floor is inhabited by hundreds of Hoodoos. We spent sunset one night and following day’s sunrise walking among these …

Last Light Over Canyonlands

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier1 Comment

This is one of the last images I captured on my epic, epic trip to Utah with my very talented friends in the NXNW crew. For those unfamiliar, NXNW is a group of photography fanatic friends from around the country. Each year we pick a location, descend upon that location, and consume comps and craft …

Canyonlands

In landscape, Uncategorized by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

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 …

A House in Weld, Maine

In Uncategorized by Robert Lussier2 Comments

After my little Puffin shoot in Machais Maine at the beginning of August (more on that in a future post), I drove across the state to meet my family in the New Hampshire’s White Mountains for a few days of relaxation and time with the grandkids. It wasn’t a straight shot for Machais to Lincoln, …
