A few canyon favorites
Below are three favorite images from photographing local canyons this year. Hopefully you like green!
This is a composition I've been playing around with for a few years. It's a fairly obvious shot when you visit the location, so I think it really benefits from nice conditions, like heavy fog. I think I've finally settled on one that I like... Although the lone, skinny tree still distracts me somewhat.
Image settings: 20mm, f/10, 1/10s, ISO 200
I shot this while testing a pre-release lens for Venus Optics and it's one of my widest portfolio shots at 12mm! I'm often hesitant to shoot ultra wide in the forest because it can pull too much sky into the image. However, this was a fairly narrow canyon with incredible textures everywhere so it worked quite well!
Image settings: 12mm, f/13, 1/4s, ISO 200
Another image I created while testing the aforementioned lens. Also shot at 12mm, the big difference here is that I actually brought in some sky. Typically on a sunny day this is something you'd want to avoid, but there is one thing you can do to make it work quite well: incorporate the sun and diffraction spikes! And just like with the previous image, there was a ton of beautiful texture to pull in and incorporate.
Image settings: 12mm, f/13, 0.6s, ISO 100
An additional exposure was blended in for dynamic range.

I love greens!
Excellent images Tristan
Thanks Casey :) You came to the right blog for greens lol
This scenere really suits for 12mm lens I think, cool shots!
Yes, I find it's quite fun in canyons! I've tried to use 10-12mm for forests but I've found it extremely difficult.
These are magical
Thanks my friend :)
Beautiful photos! This place is definitely heaven for the soul in my opinion. The place you go to recharge your batteries.
The healing effects on the mind are real. I love it so much.
this one is really stunning man! that long exposure worked really well
Thank you! I really want to shoot more canyon images like this. Shooting into the sun is a lot of fun.
Green canyons seem to have more going on! hahaha Awesome shots!
It's actually a struggle. They often have too much going on in the tighter sections. Usually in the form of giant, unsightly log jams!
