Reviews - What do customers think about Canyonlands (Panoramas Pocket Edition)?

Excellent panoramic photography.  Feb 3, 2008
CANYONLANDS contains 26 panoramic photographs. These can be folded out to a length of 90 centimeters. The following is my review of a smaller version of this book, by the same author. The smaller book, also called CANYONLANDS, contains photos selected from the larger book.

The photographer, Reiner Sahm, was careful to take the pictures at a time of day that works best for desert landscapes, namely, near sunset. Also, the photographer was careful to exclude tourists from most of the photos.

The great virtue of this book is that it contains scenery that is not much known or not much published. For example, we see Goblin Valley in Utah. Goblin Valley is easy to reach by way of a newly paved road. The road leads right up to a parking lot, and from the lot one can amble down into the valley and mingle among the "goblins." Various parts of Goblin Valley can be seen in the comedic science fiction movie, VISION QUEST. One criticism for the book under review, is that the picture does not show a representative goblin. In other words, from Reiner Sahm's photograph, the reader cannot really tell what is unique about this park. Goblin Valley is reasonably close to Moab. As long as you are visiting Goblin Valley, one should stop at nearby Hanksville, and go inside a supermarket carved out of the inside of a mountain.

Another example of little known, but yet amazing, scenery is Kash-Katuwe Tent Rocks. This park contains black conical things, similar to those found in Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. The black things, chimneys about 30 feet tall, have black cones or hats made of stone.

Yet another little known and little photographed scene is Vermilion Cliffs (Pariah Canyon, the Wave). Although the scene is one of the most unique and amazing in America, you must hike around ten miles to get to it. Moreover, this area was only recently discovered, apparently in the early 1990s.

Reiner Sahm continues his excursion into scenes that are little published--we see Chesler Park. The image of Chesler Park is shown from the meadow side. Colorful spires rise directly from a grassy meadow. The hike from Elephant Hill to Chesler Park is one of the greatest in America. To provide some perspective, the single greatest hike in America is the eleven mile Kalalau Trail on Kauai.

Of course, Reiner Sahm could not resist Monument Valley. And so, this book does contains a photo of Monument Valley. Fortunately, we are spared the usual image of The Mittens, and instead we are shown a more remote part of Monument Valley (Hunts Mesa).

I am greatful for Reiner Sahm's hard work in seeking out a number of awesome spots, e.g., Vermilion Cliffs, Chesler Park, Goblin Valley, and Kasha-Katuwe, that have generally been ignored by other photographers.
 
Thirteen panoramic photos, each 20 inches long.  Feb 3, 2008
This book contains thirteen panoramic photographs, each 20 inches long, and spanning the "gutter" of the book. The photographer, Reiner Sahm, was careful to take the pictures at a time of day that works best for desert landscapes, namely, near sunset. Also, the photographer was careful to exclude tourists from most of the photos.

The great virtue of this book is that it contains scenery that is not much known or not much published. For example, we see Goblin Valley in Utah.

This book is a smaller version of another, larger book by Reiner Sahm. The larger book contains prints that, when folded out, are 90 cm long. The larger book contains 26 images in all, including all of those in the book being reviewed. Thus, anyone with a few extra dollars to spare should buy the larger book, called CANYONLANDS PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPHY.

I am greatful for Reiner Sahm's hard work in seeking out a number of awesome spots, e.g., Vermilion Cliffs, Chesler Park, Goblin Valley, and Kasha-Katuwe, that have generally been ignored by other photographers.
