    This was my first real outing with the camera and it didn't disappoint. I was used to carrying an E3 and I gotta tell you - the significantly lighter camera was so nice to pack around. I used the 9-18mm for all these shots sometimes with ND filters and a polarizer for the waterfalls. Next week I'm off to Havasupai for 3 days in the canyon so I'll have a trip report and photos to post from that trip. The canyon country of the American southwest is so awesome and I live here too so I get to explore it a lot. Enjoy

    Awesome! I await your Havasupai shots! I hope to be down there for the first time in the fall.The last time I got to explore the Southwest desert was with my D90.When I'm in Zion,or Monument Valley,I try to imagine what it must be like for a German or Japanese,or English tourist to see this landscape.Amazing country.

    Great set of photos and what a beautiful place... I need to get something wider than my 12-35mm
  8. Awesome shots. Are those taken on The Grand Staircase portion?

    If ever in Escalante proper I recommend the Circle D eatery - most excellent.

    As an aside during the early 1980s I had a friend make a house call on that reservation. They were using a golf cart with a bolted on gurney for patient transport down on the canyon floor. The docs would fly in to Peach Springs, hold a clinic there, overnight in a motel and helicopter into the canyon the next morning to hold a clinic there. The tribe members were a pleasure to be around.
