Incredibly beautiful and absolutely amazing

I've been following the work of +Anthony Powell (aka ANTZ) from his time lapse work I discovered years ago on timescapes.org and I knew he was working on a movie about living in Antarctica. I watched it tonight on Netflix and it is just awesome!!!

I highly recommend it! It's beautifully filmed and an amazing tale of living in such an isolated and unique place! Check it out!

Smoke over Red Rocks

I was a bit late to catch the best light but those aren't clouds that's smoke from the fires in Southern California rolling over Red Rock Canyon.

Perhaps the greatest piece of #technology  ever invented! The TV remote! I'm old enough to remember when you actually had to get up off the couch to change the channel! How would we even survive these days? :-D

Leaving

Saw some amazing clouds and sunset color as I was leaving Death Valley back in April! The desert can be so beautiful!

Juggling

#PLUSpost week6 Lighting With Intent with +Eric Raeber #LightWIT

I've been really bad and am way behind sharing my thoughts about this amazing mentorship! This was from a couple weeks ago where our task was to capture motion. A pole from the participants resulted in an assignment to capture juggling! This was my final shot. And as is required this is SOOC!

It has been so much fun to experiment and try new things that I know I never would have done otherwise! So thanks again Eric and all the participant as part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers! It is such an awesome resource we have here in this great community called G+!

As the New Horizons craft approaches Pluto I thought this was a beautiful and moving tribute to the achievements of humankind and our insatiable curiosity.

This is why I love to have G+ friends come to town. If it weren't for +David R Robinson I would have never gone out and captured these beautiful clouds at sunset from Red Rock Canyon! So thanks David it sure was a beautiful evening!

This is a single image processed in Lightroom and Nik Viveza 2.

Wow +Dawn M Molitor I tip my hat to you for camping in that heat! How did you ever manage to fall asleep when it's still 90 degrees at midnight?

Red Rock Clouds

So yesterday I noticed clouds forming over the Red Rock area and being inspired by +Sassi Sassmannshausen's wonderful panoramic photo I decided to go for a drive! Not quite as many clouds as I had hoped for but it was a beautiful scene and I love that you can just make out some anticrepuscular rays shining on the red rocks!

This pano was made from 7 images and the original is 12653 pixels wide!

Now that's customer service! I had been trying to get an oil change for a couple days but the place was busy so I came in early the following morning. Phil checked me in and said it would be under an hour. It took over two! Without even saying a word Phil comped my service and said that was for the long wait! Now that's how to treat a customer! Way to go Phil!
