Kodachrome Sundown Colours (Utah) • PhotoTraces


The featured photograph is from a spot I didn’t know existed on the time I used to be planning my newest journey to Arizona and Utah. The place is named Kodachrome Basin State Park in Utah. I found it accidentally.

The park is legendary for 67 monolithic spires or chimneys unfold throughout the park and a spectacular view of Bryce Canyon. The second I entered the park I may see that it was a photographer’s heaven and there was no approach I would go away with out exploring it first. So as a substitute of driving to Lake Powell as I initially deliberate, I stayed within the park for 3 days, tenting in paradise.

I hold experimenting with my new Fujifilm setup. I actually just like the Auto ISO setup on Fuji XT2 and the way versatile it’s. Plus, I discover the RGB Histogram is extraordinarily invaluable when accessing the publicity. Due to the Auto ISO and RGB Histogram, I discover myself utilizing tripod much less typically. Even through the sundown hike, I didn’t convey the tripod with me and I didn’t miss it.
