I had to go out to Salt Lake City last week, and decided to ride out there instead of flying or driving. And I brought along my A7RII with the Sony 24-105 f/4, Loxia 21 f/2.8 and Sony 35mm f/2.8. Even though the temperature got up over 110ºF/43.3ºC while I was out there, I still had a great time. Here are a few of my favorites.

I enjoyed these, especially the Bristlecone pine, Bryce Canyon, and Little Finland. You handled the high dynamic range (these appear to have been shot in very bright sun) really well.

Hats off to you David for going at this time of year. I was afraid to get out of my air conditioned car back in '15 when I traveled this area, for fear my tennis shoes would melt on the pavement.
Great pictures and thanks for sharing them.

No kidding. At one point I was duck-walking the bike for about 20 mins. past a construction zone on I-15, and the temp. gauge on my dashboard read 117°F/47.2°C. 🥵
As a resident of the Phoenix, AZ area, the heat this time of year can get you quick.

Be careful out there :)

Great images David. Love that Zion shot.

As for the heat. Someone from Vegas told me, "It's dry heat, so it's not that bad" :hmmm::laugh:

I had checked the weather forecast, so I knew what I was heading into. And I did have that fancy new camera backpack with the built-in water bladder.

And as long as you keep hydrating and moving, and you open up all the vents on your jacket, it’s almost tolerable. :laugh:
