The name of this image comes from its place in my life. I rediscovered my love for nature and my passion for photography at this location. Then, during a 6-month period of living from a bed because of serious injury, this is the main place I would go in my mind to escape and look for hope.

Some places are difficult to photograph because they are uninspiring or lacking impact. Some are the opposite - hard to capture because awe explodes from every nook and cranny. This was one such place!
Except for the cloudy sky hiding the color blue, the full rainbow existed in smooth gradients from the ground cover to the canopy. I was almost nervous because it was too great. I just hope this does it some justice.

Just returned late last night from a 9 day trip to Arizona. I spent much of my time deep in the sandstone on the Navajo Reservation as well as the wastelands around Page and Lake Powell.
This is a shot from the last evening of the trip from Lost Dutchman State Park, just east of Phoenix. The park rests below the western flank of the Superstition Mountains and is one of the most beautiful state parks I have ever visited!
Shot this one high up in my mountain playground. I`m lucky enough to live close to the most amazing mountains. The possibilities are endless in this area and i`ve been exploring it my entire life. If it`s one single theme that will dominate my photography for all eternity, then it certainly is these mountains.
This day had constantly changing lightconditions. When i got home i had a great variety of shots. All done within a few hectic hours in the middle of the day. It was nice to walk around in the mountains without my fishing gear for a change. I got to enjoy the wildlife a bit as well. I`ve already posted a shot of a reindeer. And if i had a bigger zoom than the 17-40mm, i would have showed you pictures of the Golden Eagle, White Tailed Sea-Eagle and a Gyrfalcon. A memorable day for sure...
The mountain you see is Lafjelltinden (1030m). One of 13 tops reaching higher than 1000 meters in a small area.
....the Dutchman lazes near his fire in the Superstitions soaking up the sunset and thinking about that little redhaired girl with the fat butt at the bar. Tomorrow he'll roll around in the dirt a little, and then dig up his bag of ore that he highgraded from the Vulture.
By nightfall he'll be livin' high and partyin' hard......everyone should have an imaginary gold mine he muses as he reaches for the bottle........
A half moon rose over my shoulder providing the soft foreground illumination about twenty minutes after the sun had set. This is 6 equal exposures blended for focus. Each frame was shot at 2.8 to preserve the fixed stars.
