I was driving around sunrise to meet up with my photography group in Yosemite and saw how nice the river looked. So I got out of the car and ran down to the river bank, found a nice spot for a photo, and took it. What do you think?

On the first evening of my trip to SW Colorado for the changing leaves, I found myself heading down a winding gravel road in the middle of the night. Deciding that "vista point" probably meant that something vast and open was going to be around, I pulled over and set up camp (i.e. the back of my car). The next morning I began shooting well before sunrise and quickly found out that this was a spot I had been trying to find for sometime. Happy as a nerd on a computer, I shot away, even though the lighting sucked and this was clearly a sunset spot.

So, with the remainder of the day, I roamed the surrounding mountains finding fun trails and other potential spots to shoot. Knowing that I would return to this area in the evening, the only thing I could think of was, "Please let there be some good light."

With huge amounts of luck, and being in the right place at the right time, the very last light of the day cast a brilliant red glow across Chimney Rock and the Courthouse. Not only was the color beautiful, but so was the changing aspens. Though not at their peak, seeing entire mountainsides filled with yellows, oranges, reds and greens is something in its own.

Taken 4-20-12 of the Kalalau Valley in beautiful Kauai at sunset. This light show only lasted a couple of minutes as the sun dipped right below the clouds and lit up the whole valley just before disappearing on the horizon.

Enjoy!

Denali National Park, 2011.
The park's statistics says than when visiting it, everyone have 85 percent chance to see a grizzly, but only 40 percent of chance to see a piece of Mt. McKinley !
Here it is, taken at the end of the day, in what is the most impressive landscape I've seen while visiting Alaska.

This picture is available as a free wallpaper in many different sizes here.

The interplay of farmland, sunlight, and low clouds creates a dynamic scene.
