Each day this week we are posting 5 photos from each major stop on our recent trip to Utah.
Bryce National Park (and nearby Kodachrome Basin State Park) is a photographer’s dream. With so much color, it’s hard to take a bad shot. As a travel writer, I often take a camera along for the ride, snapping pictures as I travel.
I really understood on this trip that I’m a writer first and a photographer second. In other words, I don’t sacrifice the experience for the shot. In places like Bryce you see photographers standing places for hours waiting for just the right lighting, or just the right moment.
The downside is that a publisher will likely be able to find a spectacular shot from someone with the patience for it. When we travel, we’re usually moving fast and don’t carry a tripod. If the shot’s not there, it’s not there.
Nevertheless, sometimes you get lucky and the perfect image finds you. Here are five we got kind of lucky on.
