Light, waves, colors....it all came together here on this evening at Seal Rocks Park, Oregon. I'd been waiting years to make this shot.

A very difficult exposure, this was a combination of graduated ND fitlers, polarizer and a couple manual blends for the sky and sun areas.

Just after I woke up in this most beautiful place, many miles into a remote region of Washington's North Cascades. I'd been dropped off by boat and backpacked for 8 days. It was such a wonderful experience. This is Whatcom peak with clouds streaking overhead, the result of a 40-second exposure and the direction of the clouds themselves.

Pinks and blues adorn the landscape as sunset casts it's colours over the ice-strewn Lago Torre. This lake is a photographic gem as it is an easy 4-hour hike from El Chalten and you camp right below the rim of the lake. I can highly recommend a night at camp de agostini for anyone visiting El Chalten.

When the wind decides to do it's thing in this part of the world, it does it properly. Shooting in these conditions can be a nightmare and that is a good description of this sunset. The clouds were however amazing and it was clear to the West so I knew it would be a good sunset. I went to a spot I had scouted on the Hosterio Pehoe island and prepared myself for the ensuing frustration.

The wind was coming at me almost directly and it was loaded with spray thrown up by the waves on the lake. I just managed by using one large lens cloth to cover the camera, pulling it away and firing off a few shots. Then I'd have to go stand in front of the camera to block the wind and spray, wipe the lens with another cloth, cover it with the large one, go stand behind the camera, pull away the cloth and shoot. The results were certainly worth the efforts!

Probably the most beautiful mountain I have seen . Cerro Fitz Roy . 3405 m . Argentina .

Here in front - Classical vision .. From our night at Lago de Los Tres .

But this picture is special to me for various reasons:

I stayed many hours during the night looking at this amazing view .. It was a clear and pure night .. with full moon .. which creates this unhearthly light .

I have used a very wide opened lense ( 85 mm F1.2 L II ) to permit ISO 100 at night with 10 seconds exposure time .
which creates the vortex of moving clouds in the center .

Mixed with the sharpness of the rocks and the visible stars , I found it inspiring , . I hope you 'll enjoy this image.

Story :

Here is the Cerro Fitz Roy, and its vortex of steaming clouds, between two storms.

Also called Cherro Chalten, the smoking mountain... It seems so. It reaches 3405 meters high, and you probably recognize this shape because it is so well-known that you see it everywhere... But, the thing is... I think it is the craziest and most beautiful mountain I've ever seen... Actually, it is always changing... It is huge, colossal.

Here the framing is narrow, and sadly a bit classical, it is surrounded by some sort of fortress... Which we don't really spot here. All the violent disturbances coming in from the Pacific crash over here and overwhelm a bit all around in tumults to be remembered. It remains a mythic summit to climb, given the commitment and technique it requires...

Since I'm always looking for more evocative images while trying to disconnect from well-known visions... With this emblematic mountain right in front of me, I was somewhat trapped. If some more anonymous or unknown element allows creativity, a such famous summit, often photographed under this angle, makes it limited, I think.

The failure of the tour on the continental Hielo glacier which would have allowed us crazier alternative views... It quite blemished my moral for a while, that's true...

Yet we pretty well approached the mounts by sleeping this night at the Lago de Los Tres.

While climbing we suffered from an incredible wind, it shoved us sideways and violently threw snow all around... We did fear not to be able to plant the camp... And finally it all settled down. We were able to strengthen a wall by carrying many stones around the tent. It lasted at least two hours. In the meanwhile, the mountains were still steaming, it was quite fantastic to observe... The clouds come in from the back or appear at its level and rise on the summit's faces, it really looks like a volcano... And the cloud's speed is impressive. We could swear it was a real-time TimeLapse. I was a bit stressed, we had already seen that the wind here could move stones and also probably break the tent's lashes... But the night was exceptionally calm, still with those growing and swirling clouds among the summits.

Then came the full moon, which allowed so much brightness on this night picture.

Technically, I've used the 85 mm (proof that we aren't so far from the mountain itself), pretty crazy fixed focus because I can open to F/1.2 and keep a perfect detail.
That's how I've been able to capture the peak and its starlit firmament... At full aperture, ISO 100 and a ten seconds pose, which almost shows a move on the stars and allows this fascinating clouds movement too. We can feel the motion, in the spirals in the centre. I had to take about twenty shots to get the most beautiful moves...

We all spent a good part of the night outside, with -10°C... It was probably the most beautiful night. Completely alone in front of a scene out of time and out of the real world.

near Rogers, NE

This is what happens when you are fortunate enough to get direct sunlight on a sky full of mammatus. Ridiculous photo ops ensue. This is a panorama that encompasses nearly 180-degrees of sky, so picture everything around you being lit up an incredibly vibrant gold color. The storms of the day were a bust, but the sunset was not ;)

I'll start here with my favourite shot from Giants Causeway or lets call it my favourite shot of our trip to ireland last year. What makes this my favourite was not only the light, but the boy walking to the tip of the causeway and then for a few seconds standing the perfect pose for my photo.

It was a magic sunset and I'm glad I was able to capture some of this magic.

PS: I have a video tutorial describing my complete processing workflow on one of the photos from my Ireland trip if you're interested:

When the waves are right (read: splash back off cliff collides with incoming wave to pop it up) and with enough patience there is a great splash that occurs if you know where to look

2hrs of shooting and only one wave. Got it :-)

It has been too long since I submitted a deviation, but I have been too busy with work this summer. A week ago I spent a day at our family's summer cottage at the lake Alavuotto about 60kms from Oulu, Finland. I had a great time swimming and bathing in sauna. Before we left I decided to take a picture of the lake.

A picture paints a thousand words
So here’s a thousand words about the dawn in the Amazon.

Location

This image was made around 5 minutes before dawn on my first morning in the Amazon.
It had rained heavily during the night, but when I awoke just as the sky was beginning to get light, you could already feel the heat. It’s around 3º south of the equator, and the temperature never really went below the high 20s ºc
I found waking up so early much easier there, as we only had electricity in the lodge between sunset at 6pm and 10pm at night (it was a tiny wooden place on an island among the tributaries of the Amazon), and so we slept with the cycles of the light. We’d be asleep by 9pm, and then wake up at 5 for the dawn.

The heavy rain had made the wooden walkways slippy as I made my way across the island to the landing pier. The walkways are all on stilts around 6 meters above the island, and they swayed quite a lot as I walked, which coupled with the dark, the wet wood and the huge noise of the jungle around me (it was my first night, so everything felt new) was quite unnerving.

I arrived at the edge of the island, going down the steps to the floating pier, where I set up my tripod. The night’s rain was already evaporating in the heat, creating a mist which partially hid the far bank, and there was a stillness in the air which made such a peaceful atmosphere.
I spent around 45 minutes there shooting the mist, the river and the sunrise. The sun rises incredibly quickly at this latitude, and just 15 minutes after the sun first cleared the horizon, it was already high in the sky and too strong for photography.

Technique

To be honest, I took so many photos on so many different dawns that it’s hard to remember exact details.
For many of these shots I was limited in terms of composition as there was no real foreground to shoot. I used the pier in quite a few shots as a foreground, but I felt that with the reflections, the images worked better if there was nothing to distract from the sky and it’s reflection in the water, so I often just placed the horizon across the middle and composed that way.

In terms of exposure, the pier I was standing on was actually floating and longer exposures tended to result in the far bank being blurred due to the bobbing of the pier. I tried to move as little as possible in order to keep the pier as still as possible, and also to keep try to stop the pier from making ripples, but this was pretty difficult.

The best solution was to get exposures as fast as possible, so I opened up the aperture a little to give me a faster shutter speed. I wasn’t too worried about depth of field as the focal length was pretty wide and there was no foreground to keep sharp in focus.

I took a meter reading from the water, and then checked the sky, which was two stops brighter, so I used a 2 stop neutral density filter with a soft graduation along the trees to balance them both together.
At f6.7, I could get a shutter speed of 1/45, which is plenty fast enough to avoid any blur from the pier moving.

Post Processing

Very little has been done to the image in post. The original shot is landscape format, but to the right of the image it’s a little darker and I thought it was distracting, so I cropped it into a square.
Other than that, I tweaked contrast a tiny bit in levels, converted to JPEG, resized it to 900pixels across and then sharpened the image.
Finally I added a frame and the title.

This photograph is dedicated to my husband, *JeffreyDobbs. He is the most amazing man in this world, and God has truly Blessed me for allowing such a man into my life. :heart: We were happily married one year ago today, and that was the happiest day of my life. And I am still happier than I have ever been, thanks to him and his wonderful ways!! Below, is what I posted on his Facebook earlier today.




Happy 1st Anniversary my Sweet Love!
For you, I thank the Lord above
You’ve given me hope, inspiration and truth
Because of you I feel never-ending youth
When heavy storms have come our way
Your love has always made me stay
Each morning I wake and see your face
I know in you, I’ve found my place
Our bond is extraordinary, beautiful, and real
It’s remarkable how wonderful you make me feel
We belong together, you and I
That, the world cannot deny
Never in my life will I find another man
Who could ever fulfill me the way you can
The life we’ve shared this past year
Has proved forever it shall persevere
I will love you forever in every way
That will remain constant until my dying day.

"Happy 1st Anniversary, My Sweet Love!"
By: Amanda Higgins

It speaks true to everything I feel for you!!! I am the most blessed woman on this earth to have been so lucky to have you and your family in my life!! You mean EVERYTHING to me! :heart: I hope today you have a great day, and that we have many many many more years like this last one ahead! I love you so deeply and dearly and with every fiber and being of my heart, mind, and soul! God Bless you and keep you always my love! For He has surely Blessed me!

:heart: :heart: Happy Anniversary! :heart: :heart:




A beautiful sunset that I was able to capture thanks to my Husband's camera (I didn't bring my own because I had to work that day in the office.) This was taken near the Jackson, Michigan airport, while I was on my way to visit my grandmother. :squee: This is by far the BEST sunset I've ever captured! (Even better than my previous "Gorgeous Sunset!" photo! :squee:

Full view is a MUST!

Triglav National Park, Slovenia
Autumn 2012

After numerous arduous hikes during the last 4 weeks I'm proud to present a lot of new work. I traveled through the Eastern Alps: from Switzerland to South Tyrol and the Dolomites to Slovenia. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. In the last part of my Alp series 2012 I present pictures from the Slovenian Triglav National Park. The azure streams and the autumnal colorful beech groves create an impressive natural spectacle. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

Photographed Friday evening at Sloan's Lake in Denver, Colorado I stood here basically yelling at the sky and the scene which was folding out in front of me. I was completely in awe at what I was witnessing with how it seemed like mother nature suddenly turned into the world greatest fine art painter and decided to make the world her canvas, painting the sky brilliant shades color and dabbing in a brilliant aqua and orange into the reflection of the lake. I have seen and witnessed amazing sunsets in my time however this was without a doubt one of the absolute best I have ever seen. No questions even asked.Stay tuned, more to come!

I headed back to the Falls tonight. I was surprised to see the fall colours still out. The wind was pretty crazy, I thought all the leaves would have been gone by now!!!

The water was fast and quiet tonight. Sure was weird!!!
