Soaked

One of those amazing sunset’s during our trip to Glacier National Park. You know what I love about this park besides it’s jaw-dropping scenery? How easy it is to get from a dudu weather to an awesome one just by driving over the mountains.

A couple of hours just before sunset, standing outside our lodge, trying to figure out which side of the park we should do sunset. Either Lake McDonald, Swift-current or Two Medicine. 30 minutes, still nada…. then, light bulb! Why not check Glacier National Park’s live webcam!? There it was, sunshine at Two Medicine Lake!

Got there on golden hour, wind was blowing like crazy. Colourful-rocks-under-the-water and reflection shots, down the drain. So while the gang was busy photographing the outlet stream, I went on looking for interesting rocks that would compliment the crazy conditions of the lake. I’m sure you all know that it’s a pain in the * photographing in strong winds specially with the presence of water. Had to use all the slots of my filter holder just to get descent shots. I first exposed for the mountains, then switched to burst mode, lens cloth on hand and captured as much wave action as I can. Then combined them in post processing. Next time, I’ll be sure to bring kimwipes. Hope you like it! Feel free to share!!

How about a mountain sized Hershey’s kisses mint-covered-chocolate with silver sprinkles on top, anyone? Lol!

It was my last day at Reykjavik and clear skies over Snæfellsnes, what do you do? DRIVE. Sub-zero temps, 14m/s winds, 2 energy drinks, drove 6hr straight, no sleep, reached Reykjavik 5am, drove to airport for an 8am flight. Definitely worth it.

This was KP4 a couple months ago. Can’t imagine what would a KP7 or 9 look like. Wish to chance one in person. Feel free to share!

Aoraki Classics

The hooker valley track, one of the must do hikes when visiting Mt. Cook National Park. A three-hour return trip through Towering mountains, luscious green valleys and glacier lakes awaits!

This one was taken halfway to the famous hooker glacier lake. Morning soft light blows up the Moorhouse Range of the Southern Alps of New Zealand (from left to right) , Mount Sefton, The Footstool, Cadogan Peak, De Faur Peak and Mount Cook. I recently created a blog on my website about New Zealand. It’s a collection of images taken all over NZ’s South Island iconic spots, titled “A New Zealand Adventure”, you can use it as a guide if your visiting this amazing country soon.

Have a great week and feel free to share!

Sefton's Garden, New Zealand

Reminiscing the days when the hike towards hooker lake was a bit tricky compared today. Rocky and uneven trail, two very very narrow hanging bridges, and one must brave the steep edges of the mountain just to get there. Can hardly see any hikers around, It’s like entering a completely untouched paradise.

The hooker valley track is different now. It’s like a walk in the park. An almost paved trail and it won’t be long, the trail will be filled with wooden planks. Yeah, looks like they are making the trail more tourist friendly. I really hope that people who visits this here in the future would leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures.
Reprocessed image. This was taken springtime of 2012. The glowing Mt. Sefton, halfway towards hooker lake. I’m trying to differentiate my processing before compared to the new in depth techniques that I learned recently.

Enjoy and feel free to share!

Jökulsárlón Veins, Iceland

I was fortunate to join in on a week long vacation in Iceland for my long overdue r&r.

We took the usual self-drive route offered by iceland-photo-tours. The route begins from Reykjavik -> Grundarfjörður -> Vik -> Höfn -> Vik -> Reykjavik. Spent a couple of days on each of the iconic spots as we hunted for glorious light and auroras.

It was my 3rd time in Iceland. Had a pleasure of meeting a bunch of awesome photographers face to face whom I only knew on Facebook, well that proves that Iceland’s tourism increased exponentially over the year.

Luck combined with the eagerness to search for it, plays a major part of bringing out the uniqueness of an overly-photographed place. If not for the unending argument between me and my buddy, we wouldn’t have found this comp and just settled for the usual ice on the shore shot of glacier lagoon.

Iv’e been dreaming to capture cracks over Jökulsárlón. I can still vividly remember the smile on my face when I saw this on my cam’s LCD. LOL! So here’s to using the cracks to my advantage. Hope you like it guys!

Golden Spikes, Kofa Mountain Range, AZ

Website is up and running -> www.patrickmarsonong.com

Don’t be fooled!!! They are so so pretty to look at but damn it hurts like !@#$ when you brush yourself against one. This place is called Kofa Mountains. It is a hidden gem tucked miles away from civilization and home of the most feared and hated cacti in the southwestern desert, the jumping cholla (pronounced as choy-a). And yuuuup! had a first hand experience with cholla-pain. it’s like a road down memory lane while I was processing this image.

My most favourite location in our two week trip to US last year. Inspired by Peter James Coskun Photography, big thanks to his generosity in sharing the how-to’s of this place. It’s also the place where we met Dustin Wong shooting by himself! Ha! What an amazing trip!

Sunstar? Sunburst? Do you like it? Me, I really love shooting sunstars! i believe it add’s that “pop” on an image. There’s a technique for you to easily nail one. If you want a clean, un-messy and no flare sunstar, then get rid of filters and make sure that the front lens is free from dust!

Head on over to my blog on my website for a step by step workflow on "how to get that perfect sunstar" - http://bit.ly/1Tx1fzl

Twilight Rush at Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

Enjoying the cold winter breeze in Lake Tekapo as we end our day with a sunset shoot. Was so lazy, I didn't even bother to bring out the camera from the car. Baaaaad! Lol!
Ahhh... true enough, regret crawls in as everything turned into pink after sunset. Having a mental template of what I want shoot, I waited for my buddy to finish up, borrowed his camera, got my cf card in and fired away! Pulled off a shot with waves using high iso as the light fades away. Hope you check it out!

Mud and Cracks of Lake Tekapo

https://500px.com/photo/119474603

An hour an a half racing against the sun as we drive out from an uncooperative Mt. Cook National Park weather just to catch that final kiss of sunset light on these muddy cracks of Lake Tekapo was all worth it!

How can such a thing be so unsightly and be beautiful at the same time? Lol! Hope you like it guys!
