This am at work both rolls were empty.
I had a dilemma.
Do I refill with my preference, or do I compromise ?
You can see the results. I must say, it feels so rewarding, so gratifying, frankly, so giving unselfishly on my end, to have made such a sacrifice on this day! To the next person, your welcome brother... ‪#‎payingitforward‬

Faces appear on the side of a sandstone hillside with mountains in the distance. Dramatic light at sunset bathing the landscape in an ominous golden atmosphere.

Here's an image I've been sitting on since the March trip to the South West. This #grandcanyon photo was taken high on a perch at the end of the day. The last rays of light catching the distance peaks. The feelings you have when witnessing such natural outdoor beauty is exactly the opposite of sitting at a computer desk ( like I am right now). I long to be back on that ledge. Have a great day everyone!

Last sunset light of day creating a warm glow in the sky surrounded by the texturous canyon walls carved by the Colorado River. Thank you so much for viewing!

Here's Sunday nights blood super harvest mega hyper moon, as seen from my back yard. You may not prefer, but I like framing the moon with something for scale, for placement, and for mood. I think the landscape below helps with that. Also, the stars give a sense of wonder. Three exposures.

Latest photo from NW Lake Superior. An intense thunderstorm over a coastal formation from a few weeks ago.
Thunderstorm with lightening strikes over a Lake Superior coastal shelf near Grand Marais, Minnesota. Crevices with pools of water reflect the storm clouds. Dozens of capture, this was the best of the bunch. In the distance you can see higher forest outcropping shrouded in the dramatic weather. Thanks for looking !

What do you think ?
The Lake Superior coastline "smoothed" with a long exposure. Above you see #airglow from the atmosphere. I thought it was an #aurora at first. Above the milky way lighting the entire scene. This area has virtually no light pollution, the clearest sky I've ever seen to date. RAW file triple processed, once for sky, land, sea, and blended. Last month I spent a wonderful few days up on the Northwest side of Lake Superior, near the Canadian border. ...

Ghosts Over Lake Superior

A couple weeks ago I spent a week camping on remote areas of Lake Superior. The week turned out to be amazing for weather, both foggy and stormy, and crystal clear for some nifty night shots as well. This is the first of a dozen or so shots. I'll be posting.

Storm clouds whirling over a Lake Superior coastal shelf near Grand Marais, Minnesota.

•"Sunrays over the Prairie"•
Wednesday afternoon, a fast moving storm cell raced across the landscape just South of Madison. Holes in the clouds let dramatic sunbeams shine through. I raced to find a spot to capture the awe-inspiring sunbeams; settling for a Christmas Tree farm as the foreground. There's a nice tree line on the edge of the field contrasting the dramatic sky. I got my fancy shoes all muddy. This scene lasted less than two minutes.

Good Monday morning everyone. Here's a new image from last fall, latest posting on 500px. Take a look if like. Have a wonderful day everyone!
Mesquite dunes of death valley with the Amargosa Mountains in the distance. Curves, patterns, and shadows captured and contrasted in the moonlight. A single cloud hangs above, serenading the evening landscape. Thank you so much for viewing!

Dream Canyon

Zion National Park, Utah

Preface - Over shot, yes! Amazing to experience, even though I had seen hundreds of images of it, yes! Did I present a unique version of this icon, I hope so. You be the judge. I haven't seen the entire cavern captured with this massive field of view. It wasn't an easy task (photographing and stitching/processing)

This is what you get to see after roughly 5 miles of strenuous hiking through 45°F water. I’ve been meaning to get to this area since 2005. Finally, after ten years, it worked out. What your seeing here is a stitch of four images at 14mm. Each image consists of 7 bracketed shots to fully cover the massive dynamic range present. I’ve seen dozens of images from this spectacular area, but none of them encompassed the entire view. ( or prepared me for the sheer awe of this incredible place ) When I arrived I could see why. It’s MUCH bigger than I imagined. I wanted to capture then entire cavern, including the all of the green pool. Having been to Zion a couple times, and finally getting out to the remote North Creek area, I have to say it was so rewarding and quite worth the effort. 

Processing / blending these shots was tricky. Stitching together 14mm images is not easy IMHO. As for the 7 exposures... I typically start on one end of the histogram, and manually adjust one stop at a time encompassing the entire exposure range without clipping the highlight or shadow points. Yes, I could have gone with possibly two images, but in my experience, the image turns out much more natural and clean in the end. The colors are slightly enhanced, to create more chroma separation from all the amazing hues present. In fact, recalling the experience to this wonderful location is like a dream. I wouldn't mind standing in that frigid cold water right now. 

Thanks for looking.
