Bryce Canyon in Winter: A Dream Come True (Part 1)


Since I first visited Bryce Canyon National Park during the summer of 2018, I've dreamed of witnessing its splendor with a blanket of snow. I had seen wintry images from other photographers but that was not the same as experiencing it myself. Fortunately, as my March trip drew closer, it became clear I would have an opportunity to do so. With frigid temperatures and scattered snow showers in the forecast, I flipped my plans around and kicked things off at the park instead of camping further north along Highway 12.

The Trees of Bryce: The Start of a Project (Part 2)


When I returned home after that 2018 trip to Bryce Canyon and started working on my files, many of my favorites turned out to be photos of the varied trees found throughout the park. I hadn't made many, but I found something about them quite compelling. And so, the seed of an idea was planted: I wanted to return to the park to begin a project that was focused on showcasing those subjects. In this ebook, you will find over 20 new photos that I made as part of this project.

Northward Bound: Exploring Highway 12 & Burr Trail (Part 3)


Having explored along scenic Highway 12 and Burr Trail a bit the year prior, I was curious to do so again after a record-setting winter throughout Utah. Many other locations I had hoped to revisit were inaccessible due to poor conditions (snow, ice, and/or mud) but, fortunately, both the highway and Burr Trail were mostly clear. I encountered a bit of everything, from clear blue skies to passing snow showers.

Closing Thoughts


I hope you enjoy this new body of work! I had mixed feelings about the outcomes of the trip after the fact - likely influenced by unrelated factors that I discuss in the introduction - but once I finally sat down and started reviewing and then processing the files, I was very pleased with what I had produced.


I'm currently hard at work on editing files from my fall 2023 trip to Utah, as well, so stay tuned... there is plenty more to come!
