The Maroon Bells are one of the most photographed spots in all of North America, and especially this time of year when the aspens are at peak color. i got to the shore of maroon lake pre-sunrise with about 40 other photographers, and i didnt have very high hopes. Mostly because i could only see about 20 ft in from of me. The rain and fog had settled in really thick. but the thing about that type of weather is that theres a possiblity of getting a really good show of light if the fog lifts as the sun comes up. which is exactly what happened this day. for only about 5 minutes the fog lifted to reveal the mountains, and I was able to get off a bunch of photos before the next batch of fog rolled in and hid them again.

Something about my da causes my dev's to only show in some watchers' inbox.
To me, this valley in the Eastern Cape is the most beautiful part of South Africa. It's just photo heaven for me thanks to a combination of unbelievable natural beauty and abandoned farm ruins everywhere.
It's the road between Elliot and Barkley East.
I'm going back there in Autumn. The area is famous for it's poplar trees which turn just as intensely yellow as America's ash trees.
5D 17-40mm L 3 exposures.

I had been keeping my eye on the weather in Moab all winter. waiting for them to get a decent snowfall at a time when i could make the trip down. Snow was in the forecast for the weekend so I decided to chance it..... I was really really happy to get to photograph delicate arch in the snow. snowfalls of any measure are relatively rare in Arches,and to get a nice sunny day before the snow melts too much is even more of a rarity. I'm happy now after getting these shots.. delicate arch in the snow is something i can scratch of my list of photos I want.
The Sneffels range of the northern San Juan mountains are probably my favorite in all of colorado. Massive 14,000 ft mountains and sprawling ranchland as far as you can see. They call the area around here millionaire valley for obvious reasons. This photo was taken just down the road from Ralf Lauren's 25,000 Acre Double RL Ranch.
