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.

A morning storm overtakes point imperial on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The sky we saw this morning was insane, and very difficult to capture with the landscape below it.

From all of the amazing images I have seen of Mt Rainier and the paradise meadows, I knew I had to try and get a glimpse of this spectacle during a magical moment. This morning, could have went either way. I woke up at 5am, put on the boots, had to wake up the others who were willing to get up for another 5am morning call and headed for paradise. Upon leaving the campground, turning onto the main road had all but made me worry that I would never see the mountain. The thickest fog I've ever seen and been through, you couldn't see more than 25 feet in front of you. Luckily, it was only a short distance to make it to paradise, but due to the rain like fog it took much longer to get up there. Finally, we arrived at the parking lot, a few cars that were there the previous night still there and the mountain, still sleeping in the fog. I forced myself to continue on the trail whether the fog lifted or not, and search for any decent wildflower meadows. I didn't hike very far, and settled on this "nice" meadow full of lupine. It looked much fuller in person, but I hunched down and set up the gear. I fired off a few shots and then something special happened. The fog began to clear just as the sun broke. The conditions couldn't have been better. The light was unusual however, it wasn't quite vivid and orange like a typical sunrise. Instead, it turned into this pink purply color I hadn't seen before. The colors are partly due to the use of a grad ND filter, but I liked them and it complimented the lupine in the meadow. These conditions lasted almost the entire time I was amongst the trails as the sky began to get to a "normal" sunrise type color. I now know why they have deemed this place paradise.

I believe that this is a species of burdock which hitched a ride here on a hiker's sock. I've never seen these here before, and I am actually curious to see if it will survive in the area for next season. Meanwhile, this invader from lower altitude can serve as foreground for photos.

Nothing groundbreaking here. Yet nonetheless for me this photo exemplifies the simple and satisfying pleasure that comes from being surrounded by nature's bounty. Taken in Mt. Rainier National Park.

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

First ever outing with some filters. Went to an old swimming place my buddies and I used to bike to when we were kids to catch the sunset. (Shuswap Lake, British Columbia, Canada)

Used: Canon 5D MKII, Canon 17-40 f/4L, B+W 77mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer Slim MRC Filter, Singh-Ray 4x6" Graduated Neutral Density (3-stop) Optical Resin Filter, and a tripod.

Thanks for looking :)

Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, BC, Canada
Used: Canon 5D MKII, 17-40 f/4L
Post Processing: Upped the brightness and contrast, made the tones warmer, upped the saturation a bit in the RAW editor- to convey the impact of the colour. In PS, dodged and burned lightly in some areas. Also added a vignette.
The colours were overwhelming me; since I began taking photos I've really begun to appreciate just how amazing nature can be :)
Thank you for looking :)

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!

A gorgeous sunset from Hideaways Beach in Princeville, HI. I really liked the natural beauty of this beach as half of it was sand and half was like this. Pure, unspoiled, Kauai :)

This is one from the archives that I discovered while looking for another image taken on the same day. Truly a little piece of paradise along the northern coast of the island of Kauai. This was taken along the path hiking down to Hideaways beach and this vista was just too good to pass up :)

One Love!
