Zion Winter 2015: Day 1 & 2

Nearly 3 months after returning from my fall trip to Zion National Park, I returned to Zion on January 18th for a quick 4 day trip. My goal was to spend some time scouting, maybe take a shot or two, then head over to Death Valley for the remainder of my trip. Here are the first two days of my trip to Zion. Thanks for watching!

    The views from the higher elevation trail with the canyon walls and isolated trees looked really beautiful. Definitely need a longer lens for that stuff, though! I look forward to seeing some of the images.

      I figure I need something similar to 150mm or 200mm on a 35mm camera to capture the sort of images I would want to shoot. My longest lens now is somewhere around 70 to 80mm equivalent in 35mm. That lens is a bit difficult to work with to reach the front while looking through the ground glass, and I think I have enough bellows draw for an 800mm… so technically it’s possible.

    So awesome that you’re doing ad-free content. Brave man! But I bet the direct financial support from grateful viewers would only increase, and you could come out ahead in the end. Either way thanks for sharing such well-done, inspiring journals!

    • Ben Horne Says:

      Thanks Matthew! I figured it was time to turn off the ads because they are annoying more than anything, and it seems like I’m relying less and less on them lately. It makes a big difference with videos that go viral, but on this sort of content, the return doesn’t seem to justify the inconvenience to viewers.
