The Power of Love

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

I cannot think of a happier place to be than atop a mountain on a gorgeous evening during sunset - especially if that sunset is being viewed in Arizona.  The sunsets there are not messing around.  Talk about incredible.  

One evening, I was enjoying such a sunset and noticed a couple of lovebirds were doing the same.  My first reaction was of course to capture the loving scene with my camera.  If these images don't just ooze romance to you, than I don't know what will!

Autumn at the Lake

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

A heavy fog + a favorite nature spot = a wonderful way for a photographer to spend an autumn morning.  

One of my favorite parks seemed to have quite an attitude this morning - a very moody, dreamy, almost fairytale-like attitude - and I loved it.

Antelope Canyon

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Once when visiting Arizona, I was able to go to the gorgeous slot canyon known as Antelope Canyon.  I had the great privilege of exploring the canyon with the Native American family that now owns the land.  After a very(!) bumpy ride through the desert in an old truck, we reached the canyon and the family led me into this amazing natural wonder. As we explored, they explained the names that had been given to the different rock formations.  While they spoke, all of the scenes around me seemed to take on a life-like quality.  I could clearly see the "dragon" and "man's face" they spoke of.   

Antelope Canyon is a photographer's dream.  My hosts let me borrow their tripod and I snapped away on my film SLR.  Film allowed the colors and gritty feel of the canyon to shine through.  My guides climbed the rocks and perched themselves high above - and just watched me work.  After doing what felt like gymnastics to get the perfect shots, I was reluctant to leave the canyon.  What a magical, inspiring place.  I'm so thankful to my hosts for allowing me to experience this natural wonder in such an intimate and personal way!
