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.

Shot five minutes before "Coyote Dawn [link]" The those five minutes produced the full gamut of emotions from hot to cold, breathless to serene. What a day!

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!

Best of Light,
Joe

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.

Hope you like it..

.....in todays novella...

....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........

the problem with living in the desert - the harsh reality that cannot be escaped - is that along with eternal sun comes eternal blue skies. Clouds become an issue.

With high pressure some 300 days a year, or so it seems, the quest for clouds for desert shooting is actually solved quite easily. Shoot the monsoon. Thats right, in the dead of summer.

107 to 115 in the shade during the day - nights that don't cool to under 100 degrees F until 11:30 at night - gatorade suckin - sunscream cakin' your skin - lip balm melting in your pocket - HOT

I think I covered everything but the resulting psychotic break. You're on your own for that.

I hadn't light painted in ages so this is a bit rough, but the Milky Way was so explosive I had to exhibit it.

Foreground is one pass with a 5500 degree CT head lamp, then once with a red filter on the lamp. Milky Way is 30s at 4000 iso, 2.8.

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.
