“Cameras of Canyonlands” is a project idea I’ve had for a while now. I live close to some great scenic attractions, and while I still visit them often, they don’t have quite the pull over me they used to. Don’t get me wrong; I’ll hike anywhere in the desert just to be outdoors in a landscape I love, I just don’t need another 700 photographs of Delicate Arch. I’m interested in cameras though, and enjoy seeing what other people brought to shoot with. I’m using the term “Canyonlands” loosely in this context – I’m not interested in limiting the project to Canyonlands National Park, but use the term “Cameras of Canyonlands” to describe the greater Colorado Plateau – the Canyonlands area as opposed to the specific park. In this series I’ll explore the different cameras and people I meet. It’ll be slow – I don’t get to National Parks and iconic scenery every day, but when I go, I’ll get some photos and post them here. I saw a guy last year with a Leica S2, and failed to get that shot. I’ll regret that for a long time. Thanks for looking.

Jordy and Reynaldo at Balanced Rock in Arches Nat’l. Park – just in time for a great sunset.
Reynaldo had both the D700 and the D800.
Jordy was shooting with a well-loved NEX-5. Great to see families shooting together.
