Stone Men
Photo By Abe Blair

  • Title: Stone Men
  • State/Province/Region: Utah
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Devils Garden
  • Nearest Town: Escalante
  • Brief Directions: 12 miles south of Escalante on Hole in the rock RD.
  • Notes: This was my first time in the Devils Garden area and shooting the 617 format camera. There was a storm rolling in and with it the wind. I had to hide the camera behind me and and a tree while holding the tripod down to prevent camera shake in the 20+ mph wind gusts. Very glad that 1 out of the 4 frames was sharp and well exposed.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Four Hoodoos in Devils Garden watching a spring sunset. These rocks or "hoodoos" almost have a human quality with there shape and arrangement in the desert south of Escalante,UT. Shot with a Fuji G617 and Velvia 50 the sky painted itself nicely for the 6 second exposure needed.
  • Gear: Fuji G617,Fuji Velvia 50, Gitzo Traveler 1 tripod.

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
