The first of some shots with the DS at Cedar Breaks Utah. I will post some more when I get the chance to process them.

The haze if from the fires in California!

Nicely done, I really like it, butwhat gives the mountains all that color? Is that how is was shot, or was it PP?

Tom, nice shot and I especially like having the foreground in the picture. It makes you feel as if you are there.

Fantastic vista! It's amazing that the smoke from the California wildfires spread across two states.

Let's not talk about the smoke from the (California)Zaca Fire - I'm SO tired of being downwind from it. To be fair, it wasn't so bad this weekend, the weather cooperated.

Tom - you've convinced me that my next trip to St. George and Southern Utah has got to be when Cedar Breaks is open (for those not familiar with the area, they close it in winter because of snow and the problem with trying to keep the roads clear). I've never been there and your picture just put it higher on my list of priorities of places to visit!

Cedar Breaks takes a day to do, the others take at least two days each, but they are fun.

I'm envious - southwest Utah is one of my favorite spots. I still haven't managed to make it to Moab (Arches and Canyonlands)and Capital Reef - one of these days I'll manage it.

Hi Tom,

That's just spectacular! If I were you, I'd take some bracketed shots to see what HDR processing might do here. Looking forward to seeing more since this is one of those areas that I'll never be able to see in person.
