  5. That is… Wow. Fantastic picture, and yes, it does look like another planet (I’m thinking Star Wars!)…

  6. So surreal (it almost looks dream-like) yet pristine. I can imagine this is a place where you connect with your soul…

    Thank you for sharing!

  7. Beautiful photo! We hiked this canyon a couple of years ago while there to visit The Wave – incredibly beautiful place. Hope to get back there soon.

  8. I would like to put going here on my travel plans for the future? Looks very interesting and Im sure could tell a story or two. Kind regards from

  9. Stunning photograph!!And I like the page concept.

  22. Is it real?? Gorgeous Shot!!

  23. Oooooo niceeee… Feels claustrophobic though πŸ™‚

  24. Been there, as well. Nice photo. The Wave is also a must at Grand Staircase Escalante. If you haven’t read Edward Abbey’s “Desert Solitaire,” it’s a great book. It always takes me back to my time spent in Utah’s canyonlands.

  25. This looks so cool! Would be amazing to do a shoot there.

  26. Awesome and spiritual! You may want to consider submitting your photos to “istockphotos.” Thank you for sharing!

  27. Your image makes me want to reach out and touch it, lovely.

  29. FABULOUS pic. I’ve always wanted to go to a place with Gulch in the name! It looks like a movie set doesn’t it? I guess it goes to show how good the movie sets have been!

  30. I hiked Buckskin Gulch a few years ago. It was awesome. One of the best non-Grand Canyon hikes I have ever made.

  31. This is amazing. Your a great photography.

  33. Brilliant shot, such an interesting perspective.


  34. Nice.

  35. beautiful! i would love to see a place like this…as long as it didn’t result in a scenario like 172 Hours. Bad news.

  36. Beautiful! I will be going to Antelope Canyon in August to shoot photos. Any tips?

  37. This is an amazing shot! The best ones always make you want to be there where it’s taken and i definitely want to visit here now πŸ˜€

  38. Must have been awesome to walk through the tunnel-like trails of the canyon. The rock walls I would imagine are probably imposing while hiking through. However, so reassuring through the vicarious lens of a camera a la this photograph. Stunning.

  39. Good country. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    • Yes it does. Its a really nice movie, the book-even better..! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by. πŸ˜‰

      • It looks like in every case the book is better. I didn’t even know that 127 Hours was based on a movie, though. I just posted an article about book being movie in my blog, if you could take a time to read, I will be glad. πŸ™‚

      • Will try.! The book is based on a real life incident of the author. Aron Ralston.
