So..there I was...up in the hills of northern California and I came through the forest and I found a land of unicorns and faeries and rainbow waterfalls....

:D

Waimea Canyon in all it's dappled splendor. The colors here really are that impressive. See the behind the scenes clip of this shot: [link]

"Eternal Vernal"

After photographing a brilliant sunrise in Yosemite from the river I headed up to hike the two waterfalls that were actually still gushing still (very dry year this 2012). While still much later in the morning than I would have normally gone I figured why not and off up the trail. Climbing a decently steep trail one eventually gets to the Vernal Fall bridge where a glimpse of this monster can be seen. Heading further up the trail there was a gap in the forest and down to the river to explore closer. BAM! What a sight to be seen. Rushing in to action I quickly set up and then moved closer to a rock that caught my eye. The backlit mist and the tree in the distance made for a powerful scene. Was just lucky to be there to catch this ephemeral scene!

Thanks!

Having known about this location for quite a while I was excited to make the journey down here as my first stop of my Aug '12 California trip. And it did not disappoint...a truly unbelievable display of falling water.

For this composition I wanted to isolate the drips of water over the moss as it hit the river bed. Knowing I was going to shoot a panorama here gave me the foresight to already imagine this photo in my mind. Capturing it was all that was left :)

THANKS!

The ridges of Kalalau's cathedrals as seen from an unusual perspective. Helicopter not required. Such incredible colors and landscape!

Look for the making of this image in the upcoming documentary we've been teasing :) Coming June '12.

Thanks!

Day 2 in to my California trip. Spent most of it working on the computer actually...so went out for sunset after hitting up Mt Shasta Brewery...fun! Was hoping for reflections but oddly windy. Waited around to see what the stars were going to do. They did not disappoint :)

Mt Assiniboine Provincial Park


Sunset light hits the shores of Lake Magog while Mt. Assiniboine, the Canadian Rockies "Matterhorn" towers in the background. While I was taking this photo I had to sit through 2 rain storms and a hail storm!

"untitled kings bath"

While on a photo tour recently we were working on capturing the waves as the sun caught the splashes. I decided to go the opposite direction and used a very long exposure of about 90s to smooth out the water and give motion to the sky. The resulting cloud movement happened to mimic the foreground. Awesome!

Thanks!
