Nice Black Canyon shot; the times I have been there I found it a difficult place to get right.

Beautiful shots. Is that the Black Canyon in Wyoming?

Thanks JJDog... I too found the Black Canyon of the Gunnison a difficult place to photograph. The canyon is so narrow that you almost have to wait until high noon to get light to the bottom. Then it is harsh light...

Cal,

This the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in western Colorado.

OK, wrong state! I was there once about 30 years ago but I don't remember much about it. I didn't see too much of the area. I was enroute from Idaho Falls to Colorado Springs and only had a couple hours to see the canyon.

Nice shots.

Cal

No worries Cal!

I was there for about a week. The bottom camp ground was full of fishermen, mainly fly fishing. The top camp ground was for the more adventuresome as the afternoon rain storms and lightening storms would scare the begebbees out of ya. I was going to set the tent up on the top on the south rim and the lightening was so bad I went out of the park and got a hotel room.

The north rim was full of rock climbers but I did hear a bear next to my tent one night.

Magnificent trees.
Sounds like camping is a little more adventurous on your side of the world. Camping here we only have to worry about koalas pooping from a great height and kangaroos cruising through the campsite looking for handouts. But then again we have some of the most venomous snakes in the world.
Not too sure how I would handle a huge bear sniffing around the tent at night!
