Water Wall • Leesburg Falls, Western, Pennsylvania
+Formatt-Hitech +Clik Elite +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. Here is a shot from a quick shooting trip to Leesburg Falls in Western Pennsylvania. This tight framing will give you an idea of how much water was pulsing over this waterfall after an afternoon storm the day before.

To capture this I used a filter sandwich with my 105mm Heliopan Polarizer and a 3-stop Joel Tjintjelaar Formatt-HiTech Solid ND Filter. The polarizer knocks down the specular highlights while the ND gives me a longer shutter speed.

Nikon D800e and a Nikkor 17-35, f2.8 at 20mm. Image exposed at ISO 50 at f11 for 3 seconds. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy and as always please share.

Dune Slick Rock • White Sands National Monument, New Mexico
+Landscape Photography +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS 

Hi everyone. This image is from a Spring shoot I had at White Sands National Monument. There is more than meets the eye when exploring these dune fields. The dunes are always moving, particle by particle, and driven by the wind. Over time, compression and moisture, will compact the layers under the sand into a hard slick rock material. As wind drives the tops layers of sand these slick rock formations are exposed. They can be small to expansive and spread out over the top of the dunes. In this image late afternoon light, filtered by a sandstorm, illuminates one of these slick rock formations.

Wild Water • Sandstone Falls, New River Gorge, West Virginia.
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. This is a newly processed image from an great trip to the New River Gorge with Josh Carlisle, Mark Muse, and Randall Sanger. Sandstone Falls spans the entire width of the New River at this point and is an incredible site to see. This was shot from near the middle of the river and is considered the main set of falls. There was quite a bit of water flowing on this evening and the sound was deafening.

Teapots • Blue Canyon, Navajo Lands, Arizona
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. Well, this image may not be your cup of tea but I love these whimsical formations with their red caps and striated middles. This is miles from anywhere in the Navajo Nation and includes some of the most interesting formations I have seen in the desert.

Bear Rocks Twilight • Dolly Sods Wilderness, West Virginia 
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. This image was from a great trip up to Dolly Sods with Mark Muse. This was shot in an area called Bear Rocks which features some incredible granitic rocks strewn among heaths and heathers. After it rains the rocks will fill with small pools of water.

This image was featured in one of my recent shows and makes a beautiful print. If you are interested you can find it over on my website at roberthclarkphotography.com

Convergence • Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. Here is a newly processed image from a recent shoot in Pennsylvania. To be honest, on my first series of edits, I completely passed over this image in favor of several others. I worked this scene over quite a bit for about an hour playing with several compositions. On a second pass this one jumped out at me. I really like the compression created by the meeting of the two flows and the log seemingly held in situ. There are also some nice angular components that help focus the eye and lead you through the image. The scene was already quite monochromatic so the black and white processing helped reduce the image to just tonal values. 

Processing: The original images was processed in Lr 5.3 and moved to PS CC for some initial work before Black and White conversion in NIK Silver Effects Pro.

Nikon D800e and a Nikon 14-24, f2.8. Image exposed at ISO 50 at f16 for 2.0 seconds.

"Cathedral of Ice" • Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. Well, lest you grow tired of my icy shots I bring you another from a recent shoot in Pennsylvania. This was shot from the same vantage point as "Liquid Nitrogen", which I posted yesterday, but pulled back to gain more perspective of the gorge and the incredible array of icy formations. It is hard to believe that during the late Fall I actually stood on the far set of rocks that now look like icy cauliflower. As much as I like the tighter shot I still enjoy wandering around this image.

Nikon D800e and a Nikon 24mm f3.5 PC. Image exposed at ISO 50 at f11 for 10.0 seconds. Lens fitted with a Heliopan CP and a 3-stop Formatt-HiTech IRD Neutral Density.

"Liquid Nitrogen" • Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. As we face another 24 hours or so of bitter cold here on the east coast I present another image, from my recent shoot, fit for the occasion. This is the first in a series of waterfalls along this gorge. The drop here is over 15 feet and with the heavy flow the water was literally gushing through the holes in the rocks. Conceptually I wanted to add a sense of movement to contrast the solidity of the rocks and ice formations. At the speed of the water about 1 second would have been just fine. But I wanted to really blur the lines between flow and mass. To do this I layered a Heliopan Circular Polarizer and a 3-stop Formatt-HiTech IRD Neutral Density to the front of my 24mm PC lens. I had made several test shots with different filter combinations to find the effect I was looking to achieve. The resulting sandwich of filters rendered the water into an icy mass.

"Winter Flow" • Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS +Landscape Photography 

Hi everyone. Continuing my theme of winter's grip here is another shot from my Saturday shoot on the creeks of Slippery Rock. Here the water slides along a bedrock plane before plunging 10 feet into an icy pool. This gorge was cut by ancient glaciers into the surrounding hills of Western Pennsylvania. Nothing within this environment is flat. From the high ground solid rock walls fall away to a landscape of tumbled and angular rocks piled randomly along the creeks shoreline. The glacier cut the land but water has shaped it slowly over time.
