Stars over the Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, WY. I snowshoed several miles to this spot, and then paced for two hours to stay warm, waiting for it to get dark enough to take the shot. Winter shooting rules!
Early morning light and fog enhance an already dramatic landscape. Being is a place like Arches National Park during conditions like these was really an awesome experience. I tried to capture just a hint of what the mood actually was in the park during the time I spent there.
The morning hoarfrost coated everything in a white casing, and this mature juniper tree provided a nice foreground for the image.

Last summer I hiked to this summit on North Fork Mountain in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virgiia. The ridge line is dry with no reliable source of water for close to 50 mile in any direction. I only had enough water with me to stay for two nights but was treated with some great light on the second night. After that it was back down and a few nights camping up on Dolly Sods. This area of the East Coast is so exceptional for nature and landscape photography!
