"Green with Envy," Hoh Rainforest, Olympic National Park

Another from workshop and trip out to the Pacific Northwest this month. I love shooting in the rainforest, especially with a wide angle lens. It begs to get really close and intimate with your subjects. The key is finding a strong, graphic element that makes a great shape to act as the compositional anchor. In this image it's the radiating fronds of the foreground ferns, complimented by the repeating diagonal lines of the vine maple trunks receding into the background.

As always, thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

"Second to None," Olympic National Park, Washington

Sifting through some images from Olympic NP last week and getting caught up on office work before leading another workshop here in Vermont this weekend. There's nothing like the blue hour for it's subtle hues and moody aesthetic.

As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

"Rainforest Menangerie," Hoh Rainforest, Olympic NP, WA

Well, I made back to Vermont late Friday night after a very long day of travel. Spent the weekend getting caught up on sleep and shopping for new bikes for the girls. Looking forward to sharing images from the Olympic National Park workshop.

I should have some dates for next year's workshop in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned if you're interested in visiting this amazing park.

"Land of the Lost," Southern Utah

Before my Arches and Canyonlands workshop began a couple of weeks ago I had the chance to do a little exploring and get away from the crowds of Moab.  I spent a rather hot and dusty afternoon exploring this alien landscape for photographic compositions.  The evening shoot didn't yield much, but after spending the night sacked out under a sky full of stars I awoke to some much welcomed clouds.  I have a couple of images I'm happy with but this is becoming my favorite.  

I kept looking over my shoulder anticipating an angry pose of advancing sleestaks coming to capture me.

As always, thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

"Candylands," Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Finished up a great workshop in Moab, UT yesterday. We had some crazy weather during the week, everything from sunny skies and temps in the 80s to high winds and below freezing temps. She's a fickle muse that mother nature.

After getting thwarted by a road closure in the La Sals looking for a grove of aspens we made a snowy drive to Denver for a flight out this morning. Unfortunately, our flight was delayed and now we're not getting back to VT until after midnight. Oh well, gives me a little time to process some images from the trip.

This is from the first night in Canyonlands NP while doing some pre-workshop scouting and shooting. We camped about a 100 yards form this stunning overlook and enjoyed an incredibly clear night sky and stunningly quiet evening before turning in for the night.

As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share!

PS, processed on my laptop so hopefully the colors are okay.

"Jumpin' Juniper," Castle Valley, Utah

The Arches & Canyonlands Workshop got off to a great start on Sunday evening with a fun shoot out in the Fisher Tower area outside of Moab. We've got a great group with lot's of positivity and enthusiasm, which was a blessing this morning out at Mesa Arch when the tour bus full of peeps showed up just before sunrise...

Big wind coming this afternoon as a cold front moves into the area, hopefully bringing some much needed clouds to our skies. Keeping fingers crossed.

I was particularly drawn to the late evening light illuminating this lone juniper and just the tops of the neighboring rocks, creating some much needed separation from the shadowed background. As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

"Illumination," Fitz Roy Massif, el Chalten, Argentina

Thought I'd leave you with one more from my recent trip to Patagonia before I leave later today for Moab, UT. Looking forward to getting back to the desert for a few days of scouting and shooting before my workshop starts on Sunday.

As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

"Paine Grande Phoenix," Torres del Paine, Chile

Happy Friday everyone! I got a little lovin' from the light gods of Torres del Paine for this one. I hiked out to a distant location and scouted a sweet comp only to bail once I realized the light wasn't going to materialize in right place. I quickly scurried back to a sheltered lagoon where the reflections would be great and was pleasantly surprised when the sky lit up after the sun dipped below the horizon. It's a good lesson in staying flexible and thoroughly exploring an area before you settle on any one composition.

Have a great weekend and thanks for taking a peek. Feel free to share.

"The Looking Glass," Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina

I haven't been posting here much the past several months, planning to be more regular I promise.

I recently spent 2 weeks co-leading a tour in Patagonia.  After 3 days of getting shut out with wind, clouds and intermittent rain and snow we were finally rewarded with our first glimpse of Fitz Roy. It was fitting and extremely rewarding to get this first look after hiking in the dark to this stunning location. I couldn't have asked for better conditions on this particular morning, fresh snow, calm water and wonderful light.

At one point I stopped shooting to just take it all in. I've been staring at photos of this mountain range since I was a teenager and could hardly believe I was finally there in person, what a great morning!

Thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.
