During the first week of December 2016, I explored and photographed the Colorado Plateau. This was my first visit to this area, and it did not disappoint. It was an absolutely incredible experience and definitely counted as one of my bucket list items. I visited Bryce Canyon, Grand Staircase, Capitol Reef, Zion, Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell, Monument Valley, Canyonlands, and Arches. The weather included a few snow showers and occasional clouds, but mostly it was clear and cold making for crisp blue skies and starry nights. The moon was a waxing crescent providing some moonlighting for night photography while still able to capture the stars. Here is the gallery of my Colorado Plateau images.
