Ken Papaleo: X Marks the Shot: Canyonlands National Park, Moab, Utah.

Canyonlands National Park, Moab, Utah.

"X Shot" information.
Camera - Canon EOS 5D Mark II
ISO - 400
Shutter - 1/250 sec.
F/stop - 16
Lens - 70/200 zoom

Went to the Moab area to take images for my photo blog, last week. This is a great time of year to visit, no crowds and real nice prices for lodging. The temps were around 60 degrees eveyday. The first stop was in Canyonlands National Park, around 3 pm.  This turned out to be the only decent day of shooting at this park. After this, the haze was so bad, I didn't take another shot at Canonlands.  My "X Shot" came when a cloud caused a shadow on some of the peaks in the valley below. Exposing for the high lights and using a large depth-of-field, to get everything in focus, was all it took to get this shot.
