Everyone was looking forward to a banner year for fall colors last year with all the moisture we had received throughout the year, but it ended up being kind of a disappointment. The aspen trees were so healthy that they just didn’t want to start turning when then temps got lower. Many of the leaves […]
I got a chance to get out and do some shooting last week over in the Crested Butte area. The skies were rather smoky at times due to a major wildfire burning down north of Durango, but Friday morning it was fairly clear to the north and west. After shooting sunrise from a new location […]
With it being the first of the year, I was doing some organizing of all my images and ran across this from a trip to New Zealand back in 2009. I spent a month touring both the North and South islands with a good friend and fellow photographer, Nat Coalson. I have yet to hardly […]
This is my consolation shot from what was planned to be some pictures of the lunar eclipse earlier this week. I had scoped out the location for shooting the moon over the mountains days in advance. It had to be up at a higher elevation or else the moon would drop behind them. I got […]
This rocky bay just behind the Tettegouche State Park Visitor Center was another favorite location that my son and I visited on our trip to the North Shore in Minnesota this past fall. We chose this spot for sunrise one evening and sunrise a couple of mornings. What was striking was how much the conditions […]
What a peaceful way to start the day. This morning was entirely the opposite of the day before at Dragon’s Teeth (read more here). There weren’t any rain showers around. Just a few clouds along the horizon to catch some of the early morning light.
It is about time that I post something new! I snuck in a trip to Maui before the holidays and have found some time to start processing images. The first sunrise location that I visited was the dramatic Dragon’s Teeth volcanic rock formation on the northwest tip of the island. This image portrays just some […]
After a couple of mornings at Two Medicine and Swiftcurrent lakes, my good friend and fellow photographer Luke Tingley and I were ready for a change. The problem was that the road going into the park was closed until 7:00 AM just outside of the tiny town of St. Mary where we were staying. With […]
The sunrise this morning was simply breathtaking. The sun slowly slid above the horizon shining soft orange light across the sky as it climbed behind a bank of clouds. The waves crashed on the shoreline and created small waterfalls as it slid back out to sea. Truly an idyllic scene. It looks so peaceful now, […]
The second visit for sunrise at Two Medicine Lake proved to be just the opposite of the first. The clouds dancing above the mountains to the west were a welcome addition, but the wind whipping across the lake made it a pretty hard to get any kind of reflection in the lake.
