Solving Color Problems in Photos
Selective colorization of a photo is not something I typically do.  In fact, I'm pretty sure this is only the second time I've ever done it.  In this case, it solved some serious color issues and made the story of this photo more dramatic at the same time. ...

A Different Perspective
Well, we're back from a week in Iceland and a week in Florida.  What a contrast!   Iceland was wild, cold, and empty.  Florida was crazy, warm, and crowded.   I'm probably in the minority here, but of the two I pick Iceland hands down.  I'll be posting phot...

Wait For It - Timing The Light
Here's a quick post to illustrate the power of timing in landscape photography.   Normally timing a photo is not all that important for landscape photographers.  We can take our time to set up a shot and shoot when ready. Unless it's a wildlife shot the sub...

We stayed at the Glacier Guides Lodge September 1 & 2 and wish we had stayed longer. It's a great place to stay and base out of for the west side of Glacier. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms were excellent, and the breakfast was top notch. I highly recommend the lodge. Didn't take advantage of any of the other services but I'm sure they are excellent as well.
