Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes
https://thefella.com/photo/mesquite-flat-sand-dunes
 
Back during the start of the year I did a road trip around some of the National Parks in the South Western parts of the United States with +Dave Morrow. These are stars over the Mesquite Sand Dunes in Death Valley, California. If you look closely, you can actually see Dave standing atop the dunes in the distance.
 
We camped in Death Valley for a few days and this particular night we spent several hours wandering the sand dunes shooting the moonlit landscape.

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest! - The Olympic Coast, Washington State

From a perfect night on the Washington Coast. The 25% moon lit the landscape well enough to provide ambient light on the sea stacks & beach.

The amount of color & light that was coming out of the shots this particular night was pretty intense. More than you usually see at least... With the crescent moon low in the sky the Milky Way was still fairly visible and easy to capture in a single RAW file.

This image was taken at ISO1200, f/4 & 30 seconds.

Thanks for Looking,

Pinnacle of Light - Patagonia, Argentina

I spent 7 days in this specific area searching for compositions and waiting for decent conditions. 

On the upside it's autumn in S. America so waking up at 6AM and still catching twilight was a complete luxury. 

The downside was that there are constantly new weather systems that move across and sit over the Andes Range so getting clear skies, or great light in general can require a wait.

There are so many compositions to explore up this river valley alone including the glacial lake which sits directly under the glacier you can see in the top middle of the photo. 

After making my way up into this section of the river I didn't see anyone for 3 days straight, although there are so very popular hikes that intersect this location just 3 miles down the trail. 

All and all this is one of my favorite shots I came back with. 


About the Photographic Process

The photo comes from two RAW files. 

The first was taken for the stars at the very end of twilight. I didn't want the stars to dominate the scene, but I few were required for the "twilight feel". 

The second was focused for hyper focal near the location where the big tree comes out of the ground. 

Exposing for the mountains ( The Fitz Roy Group ) only it was possible to keep the exposure time around 1/5th of a second to provide the water texture seen in the photo. 

Both files  were hand blended together with the help of luminosity channels and Photoshop blend modes. 

After that basic color and and luminance adjustments were made selectively and globally.

Hopefully you enjoy  & thanks for looking,
Dave

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:)

Arctic Dawn - Fairbanks, Alaska
from www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com

My friend Paul & I went up to Alaska this past November to shoot the Northern Lights & do some exploring. 

We found this really neat frozen forest where everything was covered in snow and ice just like you see in this photo. 

You can walk around in an area like this and shoot for hours.

This specific shot was taken just before sunrise, which is around 10AM this time of year. As we were shooting the temps were so low that the camera batteries would die within 15-20 minutes. 

After a long morning of shooting we retired to warm up and grab breakfast. 

Enjoy & Thanks for looking,
Dave

In the Beginning - Patagonia, Argentina
from www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com

The center peak in this photo is Cerro Torre which is also one of the most amazing mountains I've ever seen. Rising 3,128 m / 10,262 ft the range straddles the border between Argentina and Chile. 

The shot you see here was taken from Argentina, but most climbing routes start from the glacier field on the back side in Chile. 

I camped out here for 3 days under perfectly clear skies waiting for twilight then sunrise each morning. On the last day light cloud cover filled the sky and I was able to capture this image. 

Some days the lake is filled with ice, others it melts off and you won't see much at all. 

During the night glaciers can be heard crashing down the massive glacier field seen in the left of the photo. My camp was setup within a close 5 minute walk from this location so it was quite easy to explore the entire valley looking for compositions and new places to shoot. 

Thanks for Looking,
Dave

Everchanging - Mount Hood Wilderness, Oregon

I've been sitting on this image for a while now, probably more than a year. It's been in the constant editing process since then. It comes to a point where you just gotta let it go! 

Anyways, this small stream runs through the amazing Mount Hood Wilderness near the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. There is some really nice backpacking and exploring to be had around this area.

The shot comes from a single RAW file, exposed for the highlights in Aperture Priority mode. The settings were approx. 1/2 second, ISO160, and f/8. It was taken in the early morning just after the sun was high enough to provide some nice lighting on the trees. 

Thanks for looking,
Dave

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:)
