Toadstools, Grand Staircase-Escalante, Utah (UT), USA

Once a Mighty King

I could spend all day photographing the Toadstools and never get tired of them. The variety of hoodoos and formations in the region is awesome. On this day, we arrived early to photograph this location and the light show did not disappoint.

I used a manual blend (iHDR workflow) to balance out the light between the sky and the foreground. Why didn’t I use a GND filter? Because it would have darkened the top of the mountains and hoodoos. I chose this composition so that the large red hoodoo stands out.

Is the composition effective? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
