DAVE BRUNER: Photo Gallery — Goblin Valley State Park

On their recent Utah trip, Grand Forks photographer Dave Bruner and his wife, Sheila, visited Goblin Valley State Park. Here is his description:

“Journey to this strange and colorful valley, which is unlike any other in Utah. The landscape, covered with sandstone goblins and formations, is often compared to Mars. Explore the geology, among the nooks and gnomes. Goblin Valley includes an area where soft sandstone has eroded into interesting shapes, somewhat resembling goblins. In some spots, the rock formations are close together and produce a maze-like playground ideal for family explorations. Many people think the park landscape has a surreal appearance. A Hollywood movie, “Galaxy Quest,” was filmed at Goblin Valley State Park because of its unearthly scenery.

Dave was born and raised in the small town of Carson, in southwestern North Dakota. Exploring the outdoors on camping, fishing and hunting trips when he was young enhanced his love of the outdoors. Starting with a Kodak film camera around age 12, he developed an early interest in photography. With a renewed interest in photography the past few years, shooting has now become more of a passionate endeavor to capture the beautiful landscapes of North Dakota and other areas. Dave’s award-winning photography has been featured in several publications and calendars. He is now traveling to art shows and other venues to display and sell his photography. His artist statement: “My goal as a landscape and nature photographer is to capture the element of light and color in my compositions. I try to capture the scene with the viewer in mind, to give them a feeling of being in that same place in the early morning or late evening golden hour. To capture these images with a camera so that it is recorded for future enjoyment gives me feeling of satisfaction and pleasure. My reward is capturing these natural scenes and sharing with others.” To view more of Dave’s photos, go to www.flickr.com/photos/davebrunerphotography/.
