"Adieu"

It's always good to have spots in one's mind that we can run to close by for sunrise and sunsets. I am extraordinarily lucky that this is that close to my house. Some friends asked me to head down here for sunset about 20 min before the sun was to depart so hurrying to the trail and mostly running/sliding down it, got down to the bottom and was greeted by this scene.

From a technical standpoint these shots are always tricky. Camera's are not good at capturing the range of light in scenes like this. The main exposure is taken with a 3stop Reverse GND to control the light but that leaves us with an ugly dark line across the landscape in this case so I took 2 other exposures to be able to blend it away. Then the normal dodge/burn.

Oh yea...then the sunset went cotton candy nuclear. More soon!

Thanks!

If I've posted this already, my apology, but I too far gone from Whiskey and beer to be bothered to check my own stinking gallery. From a very wet day shooting and exploring Roaring Brook in the Great Smoky Mountains,

Schwabacher Landing at first light, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. What an incredible morning. The light was sweet and lasted for so long. More comps to come!!!

Great Falls National Park, VA. This is a location along the Potomac I have been waiting to capture for many years. Finally got the right combination of water level, clouds and light to make it happen. Taken on Sunday morning at sunrise.

Kirkjufell
Iceland

This was one of the last shots of a beautiful evening just outside Grundarfjordur when the weather finally began to clear. The previous 2 days had been washed out with solid rain. I used manual blending of 4 exposures and a photomatix produced image in this one. In coming weeks, I hope to present a video on Iceland flicking through every picture I took there in 2010 case people were curious!

This is an example of the 'photoreel' videos I've been working on : from Nepal in this case

A sunrise shot from my first morning visiting Yosemite National Park. A beautiful place! The grandeur is amazing! I hope to make it back sometime soon. Thanks for taking a look.

Infinite Journey, Left Fork of North Creek, Zion National Park, Utah. Life is good in Utah so far this fall! I hiked the famous Subway on Thursday with perfect color, light and water flow. It was a long and strenuous day, over 9 miles of tough canyon hiking, and then in the water for over 5 hours shooting. It was worth the exhaustion. Did the Narrows this afternoon with Ian and Alex and will be going up again tomorrow with a few clients.

Moonscape of sea stack and the Pacific Ocean about 20 minutes post sunset at Split Rock on Olympic's wild coast. The mood of the image reflects what I was feeling on this cold and stormy evening.
