Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Over the summer I drove from Los Angeles to Denver to visit one of my best friends, and since the gorgeous drive through Utah wasn't enough to satisfy my love of big western rocks and skies, I decided to detour to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Located in Eastern Colorado, south of Interstate 70 and north of Durango, the park is home to 12 of the most dramatic miles of the Gunnison River. Getting good lighting and angles with canyons is tricky, but I managed to get some good shots hiking and driving around the south rim at sunset. I also chose to develop them in black and white to really highlight the dramatic sweeps of the canyon walls.
