What better way to appreciate the planet on which we live than to look out at the stars and wonder... what if?

I recently learned some fancy new post-processing techniques and retooled this image I shot last year.  It was taken at approximately 1:30 AM on the northwest side of Mt. Rainier.

The Tower of Babel II - Arches National Park, UT

This image was taken following some crazy rain in Arches NP.  Not something you see too often.  I thought the clouds were so impressive and so I composed this shot with plenty-o-clouds to go around.  You have to step a bit off the trail to get this shot.  Always be mindful of where you step in Arches NP.  The cryptobiotic (living) soil is extremely fragile and can literally take up to 250 years to regenerate.  I was careful to walk in a wash at the side of the road where there was clearly no crypto soil.

A River Runs Through It - Zion NP

This image was taken the following morning after arriving in Zion NP.  The previous evening I had photographed The Watchman from atop an overpass.  On this morning, I had the entire place all to myself and so I felt more compelled to walk down to the river edge for a different perspective.  Also, since I am the only photographer at this location, I'm not at risk of getting in someone else's shot... which is something I think we should all keep in mind.

Learn to Fly - Canyonlands, UT

I remember this morning well.  I had hiked to the Delicate Arch the previous evening for the sunset and the plan was to wake up early and get out to Mesa Arch for the sunrise.  Mother Nature had other plans.  I awoke to rainfall and stormy skies instead.  But, knowing full well how weather can change, I hopped into the Pathfinder and headed out into Canyonlands from my hotel in Moab.  Along the entire drive I had nothing but rain... torrential rain.  Photographing the Mesa Arch sunrise was obviously not in the cards.  Instead, I had the entire park virtually all to myself and I was able to spend the morning photographing the most awesome weather and storm clouds I have ever seen.  I knew there was something for me that morning.  There's always something to photograph whether the sun is out or not.  I must say, it was a rather bizaar feeling having absolutely nobody around for what seemed like hours as I drove around in Canyonlands.  The best time of day for photography and nobody is there.  Awesome sauce.

Moral of the story is to get out there and shoot even in stormy weather.

The Totem Pole - Monument Valley

I was anxious to finally see this formation in person now that I finally had a chance to drive around the valley.  I was not disappointed.  There are a couple of viewing points for The Totem Pole and both provide stunning views.  I loved how the morning sun turned the red sand into a flowing sea of light.

Love the contrasting foreground with the soft background. Good use of the vertical third as well. Great shot.

Grand Cloudage

I confess, I am finding it somewhat difficult to photograph The Grand Canyon.  Why?  Because it's so bloody huge and such a vast expanse.  I often find it easier to use my 70-200mm lens and find details that way.  But, as I drove through the canyon on this hot summer day I noticed cloud formation dumping rain off in the distance.  I thought the clouds were stunning and magnificent.  Hope you like them as well.

Monumental Rainfall

A huge rain storm pass over Monument Valley on the border of Utah and Arizona.  I stayed in Kayenta and drove the 20 some odd miles to MV on this evening in the most torrential rain I have ever witnessed.  I'm from the Seattle area and so I know rain... I know it well.  But, this rain was enough to make people pull over.  Flash flooding covered the road behind me.  Perfect.  I captured this image just as the storm pass over the mittens.  The following morning I returned to drive down into the valley and photograph everything I could find.  That was almost two weeks ago and the red mud is still splashed along the sides of my Pathfinder.  Awesome sauce.

Gilded - Horseshoe Bend, AZ

I stayed only one night in Page, AZ.  I wish I could have stayed longer.  But, you get what you get and only one sunset was on the menu.  I love this spot... been here several times and each time there is something new to see.  For this shot, I bracketed 7 exposures and blended them in Lightroom using the Merge to 32 bit plugin.  Additional adjustments were made in Photoshop CC 2015.  I loved how the sun splashes off the red rock in the foreground and yet keeps the rest of the landscape in mostly shadow.  It makes for great contrast.

Spirit of the Eagle - Lower Antelope Canyon, AZ

Capture in Lower Antelope Canyon, this image appeared to me as the left eye of an eagle (Navajo = Atsá) with its beak coming towards me on the left side.  Or, perhaps maybe I just have an overactive imagination.  Either way, you always find something new each and every time you photograph Antelope Canyon.

Ahéhee!

Lady in the Wind - Lower Antelope Canyon

I had a great time photographing Lower Antelope Canyon this year.  Oddly enough, my guide (Quintana Tso) encourage bracketing whereas two years ago it was frowned upon.  Hmmm...  If you're ever in Page, Arizona and want a photographer's tour of Lower Antelope be sure and ask for Quintana at Dixie Ellis' tour company.

Monument Valley - The North Window

Here's a sight that is probably not shown too often.  I decided to get my Pathfinder muddy and take a drive down into the valley and drive around the monuments.  The last time I tried this the road was closed and I was only able to get as far as the entrance to John Ford Point.  I was actually surprised it was open this time, as there was torrential rainfall the previous evening and one of the dirt roads was partially washed away.  It's hard to go wrong when photographing things down in the valley.  It's like a wonderland for adults and especially adults with cameras.  Last, I always try my level best to geo locate my images.  So, if you ever wonder exactly where I was standing to take the shot, please look at the details in the menu off to the right when viewing a photo.
