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.

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.

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!

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.
