Party - John, Chuin Nee, Jasper, Keith, Enmoore, Roscoe, Martin, Steffy, Su Li, Brent, Dave

I was keen to head out to Rocky Creek Canyon for some more photographs. John and Chuin Nee were also keen to take their young son Jasper through the canyon. He is only 18 months old, but had visited a number of canyons the previous summer. The rest of the party started out via Twister Canyon.

Above - small cascade

Above - Jasper is not too happy!

He had used the boat previously in very wet canyon like Clatterteeth Canyon, but time he seemed very upset. Perhaps the helmet and PFD added to his woes.

Above - is that a tear?

Above - the girls choir sung Jasper one of his favourite songs

Above - Mum and Dad thought it better to take Jasper back to the start of the canyon.

The rest of the party continued. I continued on for a few photos.

Lighting was very difficult for photography and most of my results are quite poor. With direct sun it was far too contrasty. It was hard to avoid burnt out areas in my photos. It was also very cold in the canyon and I was not too keen to pfaff around with my tripod. So most of these photos are hand held at high ISO.

Above - a nice section of canyon but the photograph is ruined by the burnt out areas.

Above - better with reflected light

Above - Su Li, Enmoore and Steffy swim through the last pool. I stop here and head back up the canyon.

Above - one last tripod shot at the top of the canyon (even here, some bright areas had to be cropped out)
