For rock/mountain climbers there is something special about being the first person to ascend a new climb, well I love it when I discover somewhere that is new or relatively undiscovered. In every case I am not discovering somewhere new, but in my book if I haven’t seen any photos of this location or feature, then for me this is like a “first ascent”.
Devils Cauldron was a bit like that for me… I hadn’t seen any photos of this gorgeous rock formation.
Today I found a new one…. and from what I have seen today, it looks FRIGGING INCREDIBLE!!!!! I’m very excited about this new location…. so excited that I have planned to shoot it tomorrow morning to see if it really will deliver what I think it can deliver in terms of seascape opportunities. It looks to me like a AAA+++ site…. and I haven’t seen any photos of this place.
I’m calling it “Canyon X” for now because I want to keep the location secret for a few weeks until I get a chance to photograph the heck out of the place, then I’ll write a guide about it and publish it on freephotoguides. Now this place is not for everyone…. lets just say the path to get there is somewhat “exciting” and not for the faint hearted. I’m going to shoot a video of it tomorrow as a couple of us go and explore it for sunrise.
Oh by the way, the reason I have nick-named it Canyon X is because it reminded me of a canyon near Antelope Canyon in Page AZ that the photographic tour guide companies promote as a somewhat “secretive” canyon that offers great photo opportunities without the crowds….. I thought that would be a good name for this location… create a bit of intrigue.
Christian Fletcher is coming over shortly to do some East Coast shooting, if he’s lucky (and up for the challenge), I’ll take him to Canyon X.
Stay tuned for more on this INCREDIBLE location!!!!
