This is the second of the modern World wonders, and only the "outside" of Petra. It is a city where they carved holes into the mountains for their graves. All the Buildings were destroyed in an earthquake, the graves are the only thing remaining (except for something, which people don't know what it is exactly. Maybe a tomb?! ^_- )

Ushuaia in Argentina is usually seen as the most southermost city in the world, though Puerto Williams in Chile is contesting this. The first settlements in the area are about 10 000 years old, and originate from the Yanama people. The complete area is called "Tierra del Fuego" or "Land of the fire" as Fernando de Magallanes saw fires of native people while he was crossing the channels en route to Asia and Europe to complete his round the world trip. The name Ushuaia was first used by the South American Mission Society of England that is responsible for the first settlements. Missionaries were sent there and worked with the Yanama.
Nowadays Ushuaua is a city with about 120 000 inhabitants, and a famous starting point for exploration trips going to Antarctica. In winter it is a well known ski-resort where people from the whole of Argentina and foreigners come to spend a few days during short holidays.
Along the west bank of Lake Bonney near Pelican point, there is a group of unusual stumps which appear as though they float atop the water's surface. In the predawn gloom, they had an almost ethereal appearance which I tried to capture by allowing light under the stump in the composition. The ensuing sunrise unfortunately fizzled as more cloud built up.
I've seen another world. Sometimes i think it was just my imagination.
Iceland suffered from the longest winter since 30 years in 2013 and when i arrived there in May most of the usually green landscape was still full of oranges and yellows. Nevertheless the beautiful waterfalls of Iceland acted as a herald of spring, providing shelter from wind and a warmer climate and from there on the rich greens were taking back the countryside. This is the rebirth of icelands flora after a cold and long winter and you can clearly see the progression of colors to the horizon where it is still mostly dead grass and moss.

Addam and I visited the Columbia River Gorge last weekend hoping for more autumn color than we found. There were subtle hints of things beginning to turn golden, which did make for some nice touches to the normally lush green scenes.
We were lucky to get a few shots here before hoards of people showed up to play in the mist of Ponytail Falls.

This is a two image stitch I took during an amazing sunrise in Death Valley National Park from the famous Zabriskie point overlook. The skies exploded all over, but this giant cloud structure was just begging to be photographed over the badlands. If you look closely, there are a few people on the right horizon that in a large print would add scale.

Jordan Roberts Photography Southbound Highway 155/ Banks Lake, Eastern WA.
I don't know where to begin explaining this photo. Every artist/photographer has a difficult time accepting their own work to some degree or another. This photo is the only one I've ever created that has connected with my soul like this one did. It's a completely metaphorical image for me and holds a lot of meaning that will be difficult for anyone to figure out. This was a very emotionally taxing photo to edit, the only one I've experienced that with. I figure if you don't invest any emotion into art, than it ceases to be art. I hope everyone can get something different from this photo and connect with it. Yes the title is a reference to Robert Frost, however it is a bit more specific than his poem.
On a technical aspect this was a very real sunset. In fact it was so real that I had to actually REDUCE the color in the image to increase the contrast from luminosity. It was perhaps the most beautiful sunset I've ever been under. Sunsets like this along the Coulee Corridor happen regularly and are very very saturated. Coming from the coast I am not used to this type of lighting. My original photo of this was so thick with red it looked like I actually sprayed red ink on the lens. I had to manipulate the image to reduce the amount of red and bring out the greens and blues. So for people who think these types of images are fake, they are very real and this landscape really does exist, as difficult as it is to believe; this image really does not do the real thing justice.
Manual blend of Highway 155 southbound. I haven't used GND filters for a long time, in fact I couldn't tell you the last time I owned a GND-type filter. I feel they're rather time consuming to use and I'll only prefer them over image blending with certain lighting conditions. Hougaard Malan probably has the best interpretation of HDR imagery I've seen around. I believe over-edited HDR images is an indication of a lack of understanding of what HDR imagery really is. You could say all my manual blends are an "HDR" image but I prefer to not label them as such; it holds such a negative connotation.
The strong wind has blown away the snow from the bushes and trees. It carries big amounts of snow to other places and the air is full of little piercing ice needles from the heights of the mountains. Hüttwinkeltal, Salzburg (Austria)
It was a crazy week of weather here for me in Australia last week. Six days straight of 40+ degrees Celsius (104+ Fahrenheit) temperatures and then dry lightning storms with a slight cool change sparked numerous fires. One such fire started about ten kilometers from where I live and has so far burnt over 10000 hectares. Stayed up most of the first night just keeping an eye on it in case the wind changed. Thankfully, for the time being at least, it has been mainly heading away from me. Hopefully everyone continues to stay safe.
