From the Grand Canyon to the Milky Way over Zion National Park ...

... it's a bit of a promotion for the guy's business, but really nice landscapes (minus him).

The Milky Way shots are stunning - but I have a glossy book somewhere with virtually identical Zion National Park shots - from 1970.

Excellent use of traditional "guy in the red shirt" technique! Beautiful landscape despite!

Love the photo's but IMHO ruins them for someone to be in it. A matter of personal taste I suppose.

Don't roll over, in the middle of the night, while sleeping in that tent. It's a doozy.

Observation Point in Zion National Park actually provides a more spectacular view than Angel's Landing and without the sheer drop. But it's less attractive for a staged illuminated dome tent shot.

I find standing on sandstone arches a bit tasteless and possibly against local rules (I mean some of those arches are basically standing with support from the holy ghost or something...). Is overnighting on Angel's landing actually allowed btw?

Then again, I love to gripe, especially when someone ruins landscape photos with party people.
