I've been there once before but it wasn't the right conditions for shooting. This time wasn't much better so I decided to visit at night. Despite extensive searches online I couldn't find any night images taken there. It was extremely dangerous to shoot at night, especially with the rain mist allowing me to see 100ft at best (usually much less though). I visited at high tide with some stormy weather and watched the waves for 20 minutes before deciding to wait another 30 minutes. It was still a little much and I definitely had to keep my eyes opened for rouge waves. In the end though I survived and came away with what I think is a unique and compelling image. The light from a nearby fishing ship is what really made it work in the conditions.
Please tell me I'm not the only one stupid enough to shoot there at night though, share an image or experience if you have one!
"Night Fire over Vestrahorn"
The Northern Lights flowing over Vestrahorn and the black-sand dunes.
Looking up at the northern lights with out land for context leaves one's mind free to wander the shapes and possibilities of an every changing canvas.
I'll be including a post soon with the information David Kingham Photography and I used to chase the northern lights in Iceland. Needless to say predicting the weather in Iceland as well as the aurora is very difficult but some tools can help. #NorthernLights #Icelandair
A natural amphitheater of columnar basalt sits buried in a lush valley near Salem, #Oregon. In this idyllic location nature saw fit to create a falls of unique beauty making it one of the most striking features of the Pacific Northwest.
Getting to this falls required a bumpy drive down a narrow mountain road followed by a steep hike down mud-slicked rocks and trees. While the trail itself was reward enough and I had seen photos of this falls before, I wasn't prepared for the grandeur of this location. This is a place I will definitely be returning to when the chance arrises.

Beauty can be found in all that surrounds us, but most stands out when surrounded by more beauty in kind.
This is the "finished" result of the image I shared last week. With an image that evokes such emotion from my experience capturing it, I don't know if I can ever say it's truly finished. If this image connects with you in any way please share it with others, it's rare I'm given the opportunity to really represent my experiences in nature.
"Stars in the Night"
Patterns of ice, water, and volcanic sand at the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon beach.
While most experience #Arches National Park in the day, I find the best time to enjoy its wonders is at night. The light of stars unfathomable distances away hitting a landscape of whose formation is just as enchanting.
If you're interested to know how I created this image please comment below!
I'll be setting up tomorrow before braving the snowstorm on the way back to Denver. Now it's time to head to Arches for a trail run!
