The Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills at sunrise. I sat below the arch on this stormy morning getting pelted with rain and wind praying that the clouds in the east would break up to allow some light onto the sierra and the storm clouds. Luckily enough, right at sunrise, light peered through the clouds and illuminated the scene. Too bad Mt. Whitney was shrouded in clouds, but it still made for a beautiful photo none the less.

Thanks :)

"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!

Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park


After an evening of 2 rain storms and a hail storm the clouds passed on through and revealed a beautifully clear night sky. Here is a shot of the milky way over Mt Assiniboine in the BC backcountry. The amount of stars that were visible was just incredible!

I went up to lost dutchman state park today in hopes for an epic sunset. It was all adding up to be something spectacular until the clouds shrouded the sun and sucked all the warm colors out of the sky. I waited to see if anything would happen, but no such luck. Then it began thundering and lightning. I was racing back and forth trying to find decent comps and hopefully catch a stray bolt, but my luck said otherwise. In the end, I decided to take this image which depicts the stormy atmosphere. Five image panoramic for vertical frame.

The last image from my outing on the salt river. This wasn't the last shot I took, that goes to prickly pear margarita. This is just the last I'll share. This is a vertical pano of eight 9 horizontal images. Let's just say that the cliffs in this photo look like ants compared to how they are viewed in person. Amazing what a wide angle lens can do. My camera was also about three inches above the waters surface here. The reeds across the river are probably around 15-20 feet in height. I guess my point is that this image is MUCH more deceiving than it looks.

After a magical moment at cape royal in the morning, we headed to our final spot of the trip which was point sublime. Apparently, the quicker route to get here was in the worst shape it's been in for quite some time, so we had to take the alternate route. I'm not sure how bad the original route was, but the route we took was pretty rough on my 2 wheel drive vehicle (Gotta get a 4x4 now). After almost two hours and being stopped by rangers on the way we finally arrived at our campsite. After setting up camp we all headed out to the point with a few hours to spare. We were surprised to find a few others at the point, but nothing that would take away from the beauty and experience unlike the south rim where your shoulder to shoulder at most view points. The clouds were moving extremely fast, and we were worried we wouldn't have many clouds at sunset, but since we had internet access we checked our phones and the weather data and found a storm was heading northeast. That would put some clouds in front of us for sure and the western horizon would remain clear. Finally, the clouds emerged and the sun was low enough to shoot. When the sun finally hit the horizon, the sky lit up like a kaleidoscope of color which reflected onto the canyon walls. We even had the foot of a rainbow appear on the horizon (you can see it here although it is faint). The light lasted for another hour as we all were content on this magnificent sunset. We returned back to camp, ate, charged batteries, and then my friend and I returned to the point for some night photography which you may see in the near future.

Point sublime- Grand Canyon.

This photo of the Matterhorn taken on a cold evening in October conveys a mystic atmosphere. After the first snowfall, the Stelli Lake is slightly snow-covered but still ice-free. The long exposure captures the moving clouds above the mountain tops of the Valais Alps.

The first rays of the rising sun are touching the peaks of the Swiss Alps. This shot shows the rising sun just below the mountain top of the 3610-meter high Üsseren Barrhorn (left). It also offers a view stretching from the mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland and the Aletsch area all the way to the Rhone Valley and the very first peaks of the Mischabel Mountain Range.

A stunning blaze of colors above the highest mountain of the Alps rising 4810 m above sea level. The panorama shows the reflection of the Mont Blanc Massif in a small mountain lake not far from the ‘Aiguillette du Brevent’.

Lake Mackenzie
New Zealand

First of all, sorry for the lack of posting but Marianne, Charlotte and I were busy preparing and then finally enjoying our trip in New Zealand from which we just returned. About this shot.....

The location is 13km into the Routeburn track from the Divide in Fiordland National Park. The conditions when I started the trek could only be described as wet.......pouring rain, small rivers became streams to splash across along the trail, little visibility, a roaring 174m waterfall (Earland falls) requiring a detour at its base. All of us who arrived at the Lake Mackenzie hut that evening were sodden through despite our waterproof gear. As such, it was hard to get the motivation to sit lakeside at sunset, but the rain had stopped as we arrived so a little hope turned into smiles as this scene evolved over the still green waters of the lake. A moment to savour ! ps. Charlotte and Marianne were down in Milford sound enjoying similarly spectacular conditions!

Gunyah Dunes
Coffin Bay National Park
Eyre Peninsula
South Australia

The Gunyah dunes are accessable by 4WD a few kilometres off the road to Coffin Bay National Park. The last section toward the beach is very sandy which meant that Marianne and I chose to walk it given the SUV we were driving and my limited 4X4 skills. This sunset was a portent to stormy weather which would hit the area for the next few days giving some incredible conditions for photography but conditions difficult to tolerate especially in the dunes. Eyre peninsula is a photographer's playground and we would love to return there again one day!

Kirkjufell
Iceland

Sorry for the prolonged absence from dA. Life has been incredible busy of late with weddings, home renovations, work publications, and of course, Charlotte taking up most of my time. I've recently acquired a 5dmk3 and hope to revisit Iceland in winter to take high iso images of aurora in particular. This one was taken during our 2010 trip which is filled with fond memories.

Marianne and I will be heading off to New Zealand for 3 weeks at the end of April and we can't wait to test out the new camera's abilities! Happy Easter everyone :)

Taken near Monterey CA (Lone Cypress on seventeen mile drive) I used a Hoya 72 IR filter. I had the filter for only a short time and I really like how the photo turned out with it!

Many of us remember when Mt. St. Helens erupted in 1980, today the crater is a site to see, new growth is everywhere but to see the valley and the changes in the landscape it created is humbling. More info here [link]
