Why I love my 24-105 by tourofnature Why I love my 24-105 by tourofnature
An epic display of light over the rugged canyons of Canyonlands National Park. What you're seeing here is sheets of rain being struck by the few light rays able to get through the thick storm clouds, you can see the depth of the rain around the rock formations to the left of the image. Over eons of time, the mighty Colorado river system has carved this amazing landscape.

Taken within minutes and with the same lens as:




This shot is exactly the reason I love tele-zoom lenses.


Canyonlands NP, Utah.

Canon 5D. 24-105 L. CPL.

I hope I can visit Utah one day and see it for myself. I'm in love with the desert. Gorgeous photo.
Have you been to Death Valley? I bet you'd get some amazing photos. I lived 12 miles away and never got to see it myself :(

This looks great. I've always wanted to live in Utah.

I can't write a critique, but I think it might look better if it was a little less gray? And I'd personally prefer it if the picture had been taken so that there was more rock and less sky.

But otherwise, it's a wonderful shot. Plus, I like how the copyright looks good and isn't taking over the picture.

I love feedback like that. I wanted to leave the color as close to what I saw as possible, I did post a pic with more rock and less sky a couple of weeks ago, its posted on the bottom of the comments above. Thanks for taking the time to critique. Utah is an amazing place!
