Mouth of the Dragon

I have visited Kauai many times, but never in Winter. Well, “winter” there is a chilly 65 degrees. Anyway, my first time here in winter, to see the winter swell, and I got a nice show. This specific location is just before Queen’s bath. At the bottom of the trailhead to get to this point, there is a sign that warns of the danger of the surf in this area. Many people have gone on this beach and gone down on these rocks, only to be taken off guard and swept away. So the surf was particularly big this day, and twilight was setting in. Naturally I was hanging around as the burn had come back when the high clouds started popping. It was just seriously impressive.
I set up my composition and ran out to the point. I’m a good 30 feet above the ocean here, but trust me, I didn’t feel safe (even though I had watched the ocean for over an hour and not a drop had reached where I was standing). This was shot at 29mm, and even with this zoomed-in perspective, my camera was still slightly at risk. But I’m really glad I captured this moment.
It was also the first the first time I noticed that the tip of the Na Pali coastline looks like a dragons head. Also, the rock formation I’m standing on kinda looks like one too. Dragons everywhere!

WHAT?!?!!?

A landscape photography podcast? YES! It finally exists, I've been wanting one for so long. On my LOOOONG drives to locations for landscape shoots, I've been weary of only hearing information about wedding photography or street photography. Yes, no one was forcing me to listen to those podcasts, but there's been a void out there for a LONG time. There has never been a podcast that specifically focuses on landscape and nature. It's such an organic fit for us nature photographers. We're in the car driving millions and billions of miles to locations, and wouldn't it be cool to get a little dose of inspiration along the way? Or pick up a tiny shrapnel of knowledge? Maybe a new technique to try out the next time we shoot?

The wait is over. I teamed up with the Improve Photography network and Nick Page Photography to make this happen.
I'm excited to announce our new weekly podcast, Now available on iTunes, "Tripod: The Nature Photography Podcast"

Please take a moment to go download, subscribe, and RATE the podcast. Early ratings help a bunch! Sharing is caring, get the word out by sharing this post and the podcast with your friends.

Soon we'll be getting some big names in landscape photography on the show so you can get insight into how they work!

Like my Facebook photography page Smoke-filled skies in the central Oregon wilderness created unusual conditions for photographing this landscape. Like a scene from mars, the sky lit up orange and red; the orange glow blanketed the scene. These volcanic rock formations tower up to 30 feet high and are the product of thousands of years of erosion. Because of the uniquely smoky and thick conditions, I was able to photograph the sun higher in the ...

"Sahalie Swift"

Sahalie Falls in the Oregon wilderness is running at low volume, like many Oregon waterfalls with our extended drought. This unusually low volume allowed for a more intimate viewpoint of this fall, and it's unique bend where swift current plunges down a uniform face.
See it in my latest works gallery:

Like my Facebook photography page Skype Photoshop Processing Lessons Private Tours & Workshops I met up with Michael Shainblum last night at Thor’s Well. We got pretty sweet conditions. I decided to take a stab at this new vantage point because the tidal conditions were perfect.

Naupuka Rise

Just returning from nearly two weeks of a whirlwind trip to the beautiful island of Kauai. To kick things off, I took a stab at this one. We had actually got lost looking for a different beach and ended up here. As we were leaving and I was bellyaching about google maps taking us to the wrong place, i spotted the light hitting these Naupuka plants that grow in lush groves on the beaches. I lined it up with the tree and was happy with the result.

Like my Facebook photography page Skype Photoshop Processing Lessons For those of you who follow my work, you know I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with this place. Thor’s Well, on the Oregon coast. I’ve been here a few times (ahem). Anyway, the trick is to get good tidal level, lots of cloud cover, no marine layer, and non-lethal waves. Sounds easy, right? I’ve been here many times and I’ve only seen it happen twice. But when all the el...

+Majeed Badizadegan, I'm on the Google+ team and we wanted to know if you’ve ever thought about creating Collections (https://goo.gl/jp4KHo) to showcase the different content you post about? Not sure what Collections are? Take a look at some of the Featured Collections to get an idea of what they’re like (https://goo.gl/42Zib1). Let me know if you have any questions!

Smoke from the recent wildfires sticks to crater lake as the milky way rises.

Like my Facebook photography page Intensely bright milky way rises in the dark skies over Crater Lake. Smoke from the recent wildfires was clinging to the lake creating a surreal haze. This is a blend of twilight shot for the foreground/lake and night shot for shadow detail.

Like my Facebook page The Redwoods are a special place in any condition. Smoke from the recent wildfires in the northwest clung to this redwood grove as morning rays of light made there way through the treetops. "From the unreal lead me to the real. From darkness lead me to the light. From death lead me to immortality." I recently lost someone close to me, and I hope he is in a better place now. This image is dedicated to him.
