Preparing for a Hiatus

Tomorrow, Friday, May 4, I’ll be boarding a plane at Midway Airport in Chicago and flying to Las Vegas, where I’ll rent a car and spend about ten days photographing at Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah and Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, before returning on the evening of May 15.  I’ll be in the field pretty much all day every day, and–based on experience–will have just about enough energy to collapse each night after the shooting is done, and then get up about an hour before sunrise the following morning to begin doing it all over again.

So, I won’t be updating the blog again, presumably, until some time in the second half of May.  I always return from these trips absolutely exhausted (that’s when I really need a vacation), so I beg your indulgence.  I hope to come back with a plethora of new material, some of which will, of course, appear here.

“See” you again in 2-3 weeks.

Sunrise, Foothills Parkway, Tennessee
