Here is a slot canyon that I visited a few years back and came away with nothing, earlier this year we revisited it so Jen could see it. I was happy to walk away with this dynamic composition at the last minute before our guide called us back. It's always worth another visit even if you're not inspired the first go around!

It's these moments of sweet light that we all wait for as photographers, the last light of the day gently illuminating the mountain peaks. Only a few more days in the Tetons before we move on to South Dakota.

The Tetons are in rare form with flowers blooming around every bend, rivers flooding, and skies to die for. Last night the clouds were begging for a long exposure, so I obliged with a 10 stop filter.

The foreground is focus stacked without the filter at f/8 for maximum sharpness, the sky is a one minute exposure with a 10 stop filter. I processed all images in Capture One Pro and blended them in Photoshop.

You don't see many light beams in Lower Antelope Canyon, we were pleased to find this small beam on a recent tour. It may be one of the last as well due to tightening restrictions on photo tours (which you can only do with a special permit now), our guide may have gotten into trouble for throwing sand for us on this tour as it is no longer allowed. It is only a matter of time until the photo tours go away in upper as well.

It is rare to find a slot canyon that is virtually un-photographed, and I was lucky enough to find this gem. Very few visit this canyon due to it's remote location that requires an atv or very good sand driving skills. Not to mention the horrible directions online made this a challenging place to find! I was shocked to find a narrow canyon with sinuous curves and some of the best glow I've seen in a slot.

Hard to believe this incredible waterfall is located in Colorado, it could easily be mistaken for being in the pacific northwest. As we sit here in the windy and hot Southwest, the urge to be back in the mountains is strong. Who else has the mountain itch?

Excited to explore a new slot canyon this week near Page, here is a shot from Canyon X last year. If you would like the latest information on the slot canyons near Page send me a message with your email to be added to our secret facebook group. A lot has changed this year like Lower Antelope being closed to photography!

A simple, classic view of Mount Whitney catching the first light of the day. We are down in Phoenix for the week visiting family, then headed to Zion for a private workshop.

Something totally out of the ordinary for me...we have been out photographing dolphins and whales on the Pacific coast this month and having a fantastic time. I have trouble connecting with the ocean, recently I have been approaching it in a more abstract manner and finding some success, paired with black and white I find it to be creatively satisfying. Anyone else enjoy shooting marine life?

Removing noise from a night sky can be a challenging proposition while maintaining detail in the stars, Greg Benz has put together a great tutorial on how to reduce noise in the sky using luminosity masks. What's your favorite way to reduce noise in night photos?
