Location, Location, Location - and thank you, thank you, thank you

A big "thank you" goes to Springdale, Utah-based photographer David J. West.

Last night, after our farewell group slide show, David (a proud new dad) shared one of his secret spots for shooting Zion National Park with my photo workshop students.

Visit his site – and his gallery when you are in Zion.

Check my workshop page in a few months for info on my May 2011 Southwest Photo Caravan with Juan Pons - which will include shoots in Arches, Bryce and Zion - and few of our own secrets spots.

P.S. Here is my original image, pre-Adobe Camera Raw. David, who also uses Photoshop, has a good line: "You can't put Mother Nature on paper." In other words, he (and I) have no problem using Photoshop to enhance our pictures.
