I am now back home from a whirlwind autumn tour that took me from the High peaks of the Adirondacks through Vermont and finally to the mountains of West Virgina. I spent 20 days on the road leading 2 week long photo workshops and shooting personal work. The color was so-so this year in New England coming on early and strong, but ending in muted colors after tropical storm Nicole blew up the coast and hammered new England. Over the next several weeks I will be sharing new work from my travels, so stay tuned!

Don't worry, it's coming! This is a shot from several years ago from the summit of Spruce Knob in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virginia. The day brought very cloudy weather in the morning, but by the time the late afternoon had rolled around the sky began to break up.
I sat on the summit for several hours watching the play of clouds, light and shadow across the forest. This was my favorite shot from the afternoon, as the forest below became bathed in soft diffused light and the clouds above marched across the sky, I captured this image.

From an amazing afternoon hiking the Virgin River Narrows. The Cottonwoods were at peak in most sections of the inner canyon and the reflected light was wonderful. Thanks for your comments! Joe

Caught some amazing light under the Court of the Patriarchs the other morning in Zion National Park. I will be in the park for another 2 days and then heading over to Page for 5 days of shooting on the sandstone and in the slots!

I have been hard at work for the past two weeks designing and writing my new eBook "10 Tips for Amazing Autumn Images". This recent venture has me stoked for fall this year, my favorite season I might add, in hopes of producing new and exciting images from Vermont, Ne Hampshire, West Virginia and Zion in southern Utah.

Thought i might share an image I made 3 years ago while on self assignment collecting new shot for a book that myself and Ian Plant published entitled 50 Amazing Things You Must See & Do in the Greater DC Area.

This is a shot from Overall Run in Shenandoah National park at the peak of color. The tops of the mountains were covered in thick blankets of for this day and the rain was at time downright torrential. I hiked down to these falls and then waited under the shelter of the canopy in the heaviest rain I had ever shot in. When it finally cleared the forest was filled with smoke and the color were saturated and rich, a photographers dream.

I was mesmerized by the curving shape of the yellow amongst a sea of green.

Shot this past October in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virginia.

Same bat time, same bat channel....

Holy reflected light Batman. Trying to come up with new ways to shoot the most over shot slot in the world. Not sure if I succeeded, but it was a hell of a lot of fun trying.
