Palo Duro Canyon Images
Spent a couple of days in Amarillo, making several walks down in Palo Duro Canyon, a beautiful place, but one I am glad I visited in May and not September!

The morning I arrived at the rim for the longest walk, a 6 mile round-trip to a formation called the Lighthouse, it was 46 degrees and felt wonderful, but the temperature quickly raised by around 30 degrees, and it felt even warmer on the canyon floor.

All shots made with an E1 and either the 12-60 f2.8-4 SWD, 50-200 f2.8-3.5 SWD or the 9-18 f4-5.6 Digital Zuikos.

The folder of around 100 images is located here:

Wide view of the Lighthouse at the 9mm end of the 9-18 Zuiko:

View of the trail I had just walked from the peak you have to climb to get at the Lighthouse:

Spring Cactus bloom:

A cave in the canyon wall. I got close, but didn't go in!

It's a long way from the nearest watering hole. Good thing I was carrying my own!

Really impressive shots Greg. Another part of Texas that I have never been to; it looks like a great place to spend hours with a camera.

As Steven has stated- a most impressive landscape. I've been busy this weekend and haven't yet had a chance to look at your latest gallery as yet. But I'm looking forward to it.

Great images but I must ask you to stop doing that. We're pretty homesick for northern Arizona and this just isn't helping.



PS: Go to my smugmug site to see what I mean:

Hi Ted!

I have a friend who has travelled often to Sedona and has a couple of desert images shot by John Gavrillis, who has a studio there. Definitely a place I would like to visit!

Thank you for your comments.
