Waves of rock  At popular destinations it can be difficult getting pics that are not the same as everyone else's.  I went down into Antelope Canyon with the aim of trying get something different  So I tried to look for unusual angles.  Also, almost everyone's pics are that 'red sandstone with sunlight' shade of orange and yellow.  However, I noticed that the sandstone took on interesting shades going through purple, brown, black, cyan, blue, gray, magenta, pink, red, orange and yellow with even some touches of green, depending on the light.  So instead of trying to emphasize the orange, I tried to emphasize the whole colour palette, resulting, I hope, in some different-looking images.  I even tried making some of the images looking like underwater images by emphazing the blue end of the spectrum.  This shot is actually pretty close to what the camera saw.  I could have made it 'sandstone orange' by shifting the colour temperature up to a higher number, but I liked the gray blue spectrum where the rock was in the shade, which reminded me more of ocean waves, combined with the 'sandstone orange' colour where the rock was in the sun, representing the 'shore'.  Other photos from Lower Antelope Canyon, where I played with the colour temperature and spectrum from warmer to cooler can be seen here: http://goo.gl/rE8iT3  I know that a lot of people have a natural affinity towards warmer colours, so I would be very interested in hearing which of the two versions of the additional images you prefer.  12/09/14 www.alllenfotowild.com
September 20, 2014  I honestly don't recall where we were, but I do remember this awesome little highway.  It had breathtaking curves, and wonderful tall rock structures along the way.  This was taken through the windshield of the rented vehicle we were driving.  You can see the motion blurr in the trees at the edges of the photo.  Have a fantastic day my friends!

September 7, 2014  Wow!  Thank you guys for your comments and critiques on my 3 shot HDR "Narrows - in Zion Canyon N. P." potd yesterday.  Thanks for making it #1 at 9:15 pm CST..  What an honor, and I'm humbledly grateful to you all..  Thank you.  Smugmuggers ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!  This shot is another of the many highlights from our trip (many more vacation shots to come in the POTD).  This is a one shot of our visit to the Upper Antelope Canyon on Navajo lands near Page, AZ.    What an incredible place it was!!  The formations of the sandstone inside the slot canyon that have been carved by eons of water are just amazing.    The colors are incredible, and what little sunlight comes into the canyon through the narrow opening at the top creates wonderful light and shadows in the canyon.  We had an early morning tour that would have given me a better change at the light beams, but it got rained out that day.  We were lucky to get a late afternoon tour the next afternoon, and I have to say that we loved it - and we'll be going back next year.  It was a dusty ride to the canyon, and lots of sand rained down on our heads while we were in the slot canyon.  When I took my camera to have the sensor cleaned after the trip - the asked, "were you in the desert?|  LOL  Many parts of the canyon are so narrow that two people can not walk together side-by-side.  And for those of you planning to go in the future, beware that it is very, very dusty inside, not the greatest environment for your camera gear.  Nevertheless, we are planning to go back for another visit to the Lower Canyon as well.  You could just feel the pride and the history of the Navajo guides in showing us this wonderful canyon.  They were excellent tour guides, and shared a lot of history with the group.  You will see some more of my photos from Antelope Canyon in the Daily Community over the next several weeks as I share more and more of the vacation scenes.  Thanks for your comments and critiques.

Juvenile Great blue heron in the fall.  This guy was fishing under a tree where the leaves were starting to turn and fall in the water.  I had to wait patiently until he/she moved out a bit from under the tree so his/her head was in view.

After a much (hours) delayed appearance, this version is appearing in the DP gallery, so I'll move the color version back to the 'Take Your Pick' gallery. This is a resaved version from photoshop. If you commented on the earlier (now deleted) upload, please know that I did see your comments and appreciate them.  Compared with yesterday's abstract, the processing on this one was a piece of cake:  BW conversion followed by application of Poster Edges filter. You can see the original uncropped shot here http://smu.gs/1mityrf  , and a cropped version in color, using different filters  here  http://smu.gs/1qifMzz  .  It was a bit of a toss up for me whether to post the BW or the filtered color version.  DP262-2014  Posted September 19; processed September 18 from an image taken September 9 in Gallup Park.  Title:  Abstract - Thistle Down in Monochrome  IN7955 (thirteenth in the current series)  Many thanks for the response to my geometric mini-planet post yesterday.  Creating these images is very much like opening a box of chocolates...  They're easy enough to do that I don't feel bad about discarding the ones that don't work.
They fly in small packs around my home there a lot of fun to watch and the cutest little guys...                    I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments yesterday on my butterfly picture. I was overwhelmed it helps keep you looking for your next good shot....

I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".

20.09.14 - Quarry Dancer  Believe it or not this is the same guy that featured in my Daily yesterday dressed  First World War soldiers uniform! Reece Ackerman is one of the stars of Tell Them of Us, but his real passion is dancing and yesterday we shot some sequences for his show reel in a local quarry. Never let anyone tell you that dancers are soft, dancing bare foot on a quarry floor takes some guts!
I took this picture at an exhibition of Eduard Munch's drawings. Was awarded gold medal from our national Photographic Society
