Here is an image of the now famous willow tree of Lake Wanaka on New Zealand's South Island. The sunrise was nice, but something about the golden light of early morning made the scene for me. Join me April 4-15, 2016 on a 12 day adventure! <a href="https://goo.gl/iX9Ftc">Workshop Details</a>

Hoping to get back on the social media bandwagon. I have LOTS of images to share and some exciting news. But the news will wait, so here is an image from my travels to New Zealand a couple months ago.

Planning can help you a lot in nature and landscape photography. Knowing your location, sunrise/sunset times, tides, weather patterns, moon phases...all this information can help you make better photographs. Apps like The Photographer's Emphemeris or Photopills can also help with lining up the sun and moon with features you wish to photograph, like the Golden Gate Bridge.

However, a little luck and simply being there go a long way as well.

This is in southern Iceland at Skógafoss. To view more of my Iceland images, head here: http://goo.gl/nXyzL8

"Last Light on the Cathedral"

I could get lost photographing in this area of Death Valley. Not literally lost, but more lost in a mental state of wonder as my eye wanders through the vastness of shapes, lines, and patterns.

Join me in February 2015 and I'll show you this place. Details: http://goo.gl/Ss2Ang

An evening spent in the dunes is time well spent. On this calm and clear fall evening, I waited for the stars to come out and catch the last glow of sunset along with the milky way in the night sky.

While leading a workshop to the Palouse region of eastern Washington, we had our final sunset out at Palouse Falls. As the light from the sunset behind us spread to the eastern sky, I settled in next to one of the participants and fired off a few frames of the classic composition from this location.

For images from this workshop, check out our blog post here: http://goo.gl/wDpdHH

It's been a busy month with a trip to Mexico for diving, and this Saturday, I'm off to co-lead an 11 day New Zealand workshop! I don't get must rest, as soon after I return from NZ, I'm off to teach in eastern Washington, where this image was made last year. We had a last minute cancellation, so if you'd be interested in joining me in the "Palouse" June 4-7, please let me know!

I've been thinking about Iceland again. About to book my ticket for September as I think I will enjoy a true night and day vs the eternal light of summer. This image was made at 11:40pm at Aldeyjarfoss in northern Iceland back in June 2014.

For the +500px folks, here is yesterday's G+ post over there for those that like to V+F. :)

While wandering the badlands in Death Valley, I came across this scene. The badlands are one of my favorite areas to photograph as they contain a myriad of shapes, patterns, and lines. Here, the soft light of twilight falls on a small section of this geological wonderland. I'll be leading a group here in February. Contact me if you're interested. As always, thanks for looking!
