The Owens River and the Eastern Sierras by Moonlight. There is nothing like fumbling around with your gear at night trying to get your composition right, freezing your butt off, and cursing under your breathe because your remote wont work. All in a nights work. Hahaha!

For me this is one of my better done nightscape photos using only moonlight. Shooting the nightscape or landscape by moonlight is extremely difficult and takes alot of trial and error. Nailing your exposure can be extremely difficult as the amount of light the moon emits changes every night which also changes the length of your exposure and how far the stars will "streak" in the image. But, for me at least, color has always been the biggest problem with these types of shots. Often they can look extremely similar to really diffused daylight. So getting the color at a point where you can really get that light blueish soft light color requires experimentation both in the camera and in post processing. I feel that this is the best job I have done so far in capturing the mood that the landscape exudes under the moonlight. So far :)

The granite formations of the Buttermilk at the base of the Eastern Sierras at Sunset. In the background is 14,252ft White Peak of the White Mountains.

I have literally been waiting for months to get a sunset like this. It was trully impressive light.

This was one of the most interesting displays of light I have ever witness. As this storm began its climb over the daunting Eastern Sierras the sun rose and created this magnificent display. This beautiful scene did not last long as within 30 minutes the mountains completely disappeared behind a wall of clouds.

I know this is true with most photographs, but this small web version just doesn't do this photograph justice. Zooming in on the original of this photograph and looking at all the layers and erosion is outstanding and mesmerizing. This is such an amazing place to see in person and photograph.

It has been a goal of mine to photograph the Owens River without including the ever inspiring Eastern Sierras within the frame to focus on the texture of the moving water and the grasses that surround the rim of the river. On this wonderful morning the light was just right to look down the valley instead of pointing into the granite walls of the surrounding mountains.

This is probably my favorite place to photograph. I have been to these petroglyphs numerous times. Sometimes the light and the compositions works better than others. Although I feel like this image is successful, I still think that there is still a better image out there to be had. My goal is to capture one of those amazing Sierra sunrises with the petroglyphs, but that is much easier said than done.

The best show of light from our trip to the southwest. Taken from Coyote Buttes South. We didn't try to play the powerball lottery to get the Wave permit so we picked up a permit to go here insted. This place does not disappoint either. A spectacular array of some very psychedelic sandstone.
