Mystery Canyon
Lens: DA 18-55 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Zion NP, Utah 
Posted By: clawhammer, 06-14-2013, 08:09 PM

I recently picked up a used K-5 from Adorama and gave it's baptism by fire in Zions this week. I'm altogether rather pleased at the results-- it's a huge step up from my old K10D. Comment and criticism welcome

The wall


My brother (and canyon leader) enjoying a sweet waterfall and pool the day before hiking Mystery canyon


Green in the desert (from the same waterfall pool)


Looks more precarious than it is- really just a ledge around the pool, which is just below the frame.


The cleft, with ominous dark clouds. Fortunately, it cleared up the next day and was almost perfect for canyoneering.


The next three are some in-canyon shots from the tight sections of the canyon

What a thoroughly enjoyable series. Looks like you are having no trouble adapting to the K-5. I especially like your take on the formations, completely different and very appealing. I keep wanting to study them. Really good job.

Thanks slowpez. I'm still trying to figure out a way to capture the grandeur and majesty of the walls along the main canyon. I think I may need to haul my view camera in there and use the tilts to keep them vertical.
