I'm glad @grandcanyonnps made the decision to close to the public. Even though I think everyone should see this place before they die, it's not worth putting lives in jeopardy in order to do so. With that said, I'm ready for another trip here once it opens up again!

Really missing the Supes right about now 😭😭 This was coming down from an epic hike out there about a month ago! May have underestimated how long it would take and lost the trial a few times, so we ended up hiking in the dark for the last few miles. During which, we ran into a rattler BUT we got to see this beautiful sunset on our way down 🔥
✨ We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another ✨
Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn’t stand anymore,
The Chinese Wall no longer a fortress,
And Mecca is empty.
Hugs & kisses suddenly became weapons, and not visiting parents & friends became an act of love.
Suddenly you realize that power, beauty & money are worthless, and can’t get you the oxygen you’re fighting for.
The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it’s sending us a message:
“You are not necessary. The air, earths, water & sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters.” ~ Unknown .

Sharing because I don’t think I ever posted this photo taken a couple years ago in Horseshoe Bend, Arizona! Northern Arizona is so beautiful and how lucky I am to be living there for now. 💙 When I thought of leaving the northeast, I pictured myself back in southern Arizona, but travel nursing took me a little further north. Being a desert lover, I was a bit disappointed at first, but then I realized there’s actually a ton to explore in the northern part of the state. Hopefully I’ll get to see more of it once the pandemic calms down a bit! Did you ever end up somewhere you never pictured yourself?
Want to get outdoors, but remain distance from others? Then I have the perfect day trip for you...🚗🌵
Huboldt Mountain Lookout has views you need to see to believe. The best part? We were the only ones up there! Completely secluded, and the drive was beautiful.
Tucked up in Carefree, you get a little bit everything. Off-road terrain, desert landscape views, and the feeling of getting away without being 𝘵𝘰𝘰 far out.
Once you get to the top, you are greeted by a radar station. There is something eerie, and really cool about it. 📡
So, if you got those quarantine blues, take a drive. Just stay safe, and stay clear of others!✌️

Of all the things getting canceled--I'm hoping so hard that this trip doesn't. There's not a lot of places that are SO gorgeous that I'd want to go back multiple times. #Havasupai is one of them 🏞 thanks for this snap, @christinexploring 📸 #theconfluence

With all of this time at home, I have finally found some time to go through my back catalog and delete unusable images, ensure photos are organized correctly, and even give some shots another go at editing. This shot falls into the third category. I can’t remember how many images I started with from my trip through Lower Antelope Canyon last year, but it looks like I finally got under 300. I want to say the original number was something like 600-800, so it’s been a lot of work to even get to this point. The issue I ran into with a lot of my photos was the sky. Due to the overcast day and the time I took my tour, basically anything that includes the sky is just completely blown out, and looking back at it now, is almost unusable. Then again, I’m someone who can always find minor (or major) issues with old shots that I wish I could do differently, so take my opinion with a grain of salt for what is usable and what isn’t...
That said, I wanted to give sky replacement a try to see how that would change the image. I don’t think I’ve done a pure sky replacement (layer unmasking of a darker portion of a bracketed image, yes), and thought this would be a good starting point. Personally, I don’t feel compositing images gets me what I’m looking for with photography, so I really don’t pull that tool out of my toolbox. That is by no means a blanket statement on the practice as a whole, as I follow some amazing photographers who use that technique to great effect. I figured with less ability to go out and get new shots, why not try something new?
What do you think? Do I have a lot of work to go with this, or did it turn out alright for a first attempt?
