You've probably seen a gazillion images of the weekend sunset / storm in San Francisco - because it was awesome - so here is my take. This is the first lightning shot I'm adding to my portfolio :)

And now for something completely different....

I've been having lots of photography fun over the past few days. My creative juices have been kicked into full gear in the past few weeks. Must be the influence of my new job that's boosted me. 

Anyway, this is a shot from the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park. I have added a reflection component in Photoshop. I'm not a big photoshop user but I do like this effect. Cue all the silly "shopped" comments ;)

Dungeons

All-in-all I spent about 5 hours completely alone with this castle. I even slept in my car in the parking lot between dusk and dawn. I didn't get perfect conditions here by any means, but it really is a beautiful spot with some rich history and the dungeon here buried low in the rock is very creepy.

I hope you like this image, which is part of one of the sequences in my time lapse film, Scotland, that you can watch here: http://vimeo.com/alexiscoram/scotland

I took off to Alaska for the long weekend with the hoped of catching a little of what I captured there last year. We had cloud 2/4 nights I was there but when it was clear, it was a party in the sky. So magical. I just love Alaska so much. I hope you enjoy this. 

Note: there are varying degrees of brightness in the Aurora. As we leave our shutters open for several seconds, our cameras are able to take in more light and pull out the real color in the sky in a way that our eyes just cannot. During this show, we could all see bright green and pinks very clearly dancing across the sky. The camera was able to pull in these colors with more richness but it was all very real.

I made another Aurora film...this one takes the original footage from Technicolour Alaska and turns it into a Kaleidoscope of sorts. Hope you like it.

I don't get gushy often but....

I have always been a big dreamer...pie in the sky, angels and pixies, rainbow-clad unicorns. When I started photography a few years ago I formed many dreams about what I wanted to achieve...and receiving recognition for my work from the boss of all bosses, National Geographic, was probably one of the most ambitious. My friend +Brian Bonham refers to this as the "pinnacle". I concur. 
So you can imagine my inner (and outer) "sqee" when I received a message from #NatGeo early this year asking if they could publish my time lapse film "Technicolour Alaska" in their Short Film Showcase. It was published this past Thursday and today it is their Editor's Pick of the Day. 
To say I'm happy by this is an understatement. It's a huge validation of my growth in this field over the past couple of years. I have a long way to go but I have to say, it's a really fun ride. 

Thanks to everyone who has supported me along the way so far...the messages I receive from friends, family, and complete strangers on a daily basis really propel me forward. I am inspired by the stream of positivity that have filled my posts lately... so from the bottom of my heart, thank you! And to those who are visiting my page for the first time, welcome! I appreciate you all.

Here's my mantra for the year 2015, if you missed it in my New Years post smile emoticon

"Approach each day with intent and end it with a smile"

I'm learning a little more each day about what this means to me. I'll write a post at the end of the year to tell you my conclusions smile emoticon 

The original version of this film is posted here (along with my other films) and had received over 230,000 views before NatGeo picked it up. That's just amazing. http://vimeo.com/alexiscoram/alaska

I made this time lapse in March, 2014 and today it was published on National Geographic. Go to their video page and it's the featured video :)  So happy!
