Dare to Dream - Patagonia, Chile

After spending a little over a month in South America I'm back home and ready to edit some images. 

The past month was spent backpacking through some of the most amazing landscapes that I've seen in my life. In Southern Chile and Argentina the leaves are changing and winter is approaching. 

During the trip we experienced an array of different conditions from snow and 65 mph winds to 80 degree sunny days, with some additional sleet, rain, and anything else you can imagine.

The temps would swing from 25 degrees to 75 degrees all within 24 hours. Overall the weather down there is extremely dynamic and makes the Pacific Northwest look like a cake walk. 

So far I've edited 10 shots from the trip in the past 3 days, and this is the first one that I'd like to share.

I passed out in my tent just after sunset this particular night and waited for the Moon to rise and light up the towers that you see in the distant left. With a nearly full moon I didn't even need a headlamp as I approached this glacial lake which is perched high above my campsite. 

Waking at 11PM it was freezing cold and the wind was blowing pretty hard. After climbing 1500 feet to reach this location I plenty warm. The fresh snow sparkles in the Moon light and gives off a dreamy look to the entire landscape. Believe it or not, under the night sky the glacier lake is an emerald green.

Torres Cental, the largest tower seen, comes in at 2800 meters or approx. 9186 feet tall. When you're up there at night you can hear the rocks and glaciers crashing all around you, the wind howls, no one else is around.  As a photographer these are the times that I'll never forget, but it never hurts to take a photo anyways...

I also posted a few "Behind the Scenes Images" over on my website if you're interested:)

Gates of the Arctic - Norway

This particular photo comes from a random part of Norway which +Conor MacNeill and I came across while driving a 300 mile stint in search of clear skies. This really nice lake was down over the side of a cliff, so we decided to strap our headlamps on and check it out.

The entire time we were on this trip the clouds and clear skies seemed to shift each and every day, so after checking the weather, fingers crossed we gunned it to the next location. 

Usually I prefer to stay near one central location and explore it as much as possible on foot rain or shine since this seems to bring the most unique shots and compositions.

It's much nicer to really get to know a single area and have time to really explore all that area has to offer. 

This trip was quite a bit different. Over two weeks we drove over 2,500 miles in search of clear skies and strong aurora activity. Out of the two weeks, 4 nights yielded some great results. 

You can learn how to take some Northern Lights photos using my free shooting and post processing tutorials which can be found at the link below.

Backpacking in Glacier National Park, Montana

A snapshot from my Behind the Scenes Album --> http://smu.gs/1wn1QaQ

Look closely at the bottom left of this photo and you will see my brother and two friends hiking. This gives a scale for the scene. These are some of the largest vertical reliefs I've ever seen.

If you're interested in learning more about this trip, I recently did an interview with 500PX discussing a 24 hour rundown of our journey.

I just arrived in Death Valley, California to shoot the Milky Way & scout for some new Night Skies Photography Workshops & Tours for early 2016.

During the next 10 days the moon phase is perfect for shooting the Milky Way, night sky & stars.

From the Summit of Mount Saint Helens, Washington 

I Climbed Mount  St. Helens  ( still an active volcano ) yesterday with a light pack and just my Go Pro. Here is a shot from the top. You can see Mount Rainier on the left and Mount Adams in the distant center. 

The wide angle of the Go Pro slightly bends the photos horizon.

More photos from the climb in my behind the scenes album below.

+Darren Neupert you can do it in regular old boots although I saw many in alpine boots and crampons... not sure why, then again the boots and crampons were all brand new looking ( which explains a lot ). 6500 foot ele gain. Pack light, 10 hour day hike. +Josh Wohlstadter  reference above:)

HALO

After a handful of attempts I finally experienced just how fun it is to shoot sand dunes.  Sure I had a blast  on my previous sessions romping up, down, between, and around these mini-mountains of sand.  Everything about those experiences was stimulating to me as a photographer: the way light and shadows played together, textures everywhere, or how cresting a new dune provided completely new angles and worlds of possibilities.  But each and every time I walked out of the dune fields knowing my memory cards held nothing which spoke to me on a personal level.  The fact is I found photographing dunes to be challenging.  So this past December I once again headed into the dunes and, for whatever reason, things just clicked.  It turned out to be a highly productive evening and I probably walked out with three images from that afternoon/ night I enjoy.  

For this image I decided to stick around after shooting sunset, listening to music, waiting to see what would unfold as night descended.  Forty five minutes after sunset I shot the land portion of the image then proceeded to take a series of images of the sky as it further descended into darkness.  Those sky shots were  pretty decent and may have worked well as an early evening shot.  Then, just as  I decided it was time to call it a night, a faint ice halo began taking form around the moon, turning what was a rather ordinary night sky into something special.  I fired off a dozen or more images catching the interaction of the clouds and the changing intensity of the halo.  Capturing a halo which didn’t suffer from wide angle distortion required shooting it straight on and then blended it with the dune shots in post processing.  

Feel free to preview a few other images I captured during my trip to Death Valley in my New Releases gallery on my website:

Enchanted - Quinault Rain Forest, Washington

I've just finished planning the first two major trips of 2015. First, 2 weeks in the American Southwest with +Conor MacNeill, secondly, a month in the Patagonia region of South America with +Paul Weeks.
These should be a good way to kick things off this year. During each trip I'll also be scouting for new Star Photography Workshop & Tour destinations for 2016. These will be announced in April or May of 2015. 

In the coming week or so I also have a bunch of new / free video tutorials to share with you all. Stay tuned:)

The Shot
A 14 mile hike into the Quinault rainforest will lead you to this location and the so called Enchanted Valley. Paul Weeks & I hiked out here for a few days this past summer. After arriving we ate then went to sleep immediately as the rain started to pour. 

The night was fairly cold and we awoke to frost on the ground and fog drifting through the valley as well as early morning mist rising from the soil and grass. This tree could be seen directly out of my tent door, so I got up and shot it immediately before the fog dissipated.

All this atmosphere made for quite a scene. The fog you see in this photo was actually gone within a few seconds. Small patches would roll through the valley very quickly then disappear. The cool part about quickly moving patches such as this is that a long exposure of 3-4 seconds really gives it the feel of movement in the photo. 

When taking this image I knew right out that it would be in black and white. Rarely does this happen to the degree it did that day, but now that I finally got around to processing the image I feel that it turned out pretty well. 

Hopefully you enjoy!

Thanks for Looking,
Dave
