After a series of frustrating encounters with other photographers in the field, I thought it might be worthwhile to share a few thoughts on how we could all be a little more polite and thoughtful when it comes to interacting with others.   #photography

+Dennis Lamb I agree, though that goes a little past "Photographer Issue" If you're throwing rocks at animals to get a better shot, we're not discussing etiquette, I'm putting down the Nikon and punching you in the face, then probably watermarking the damage.

I took this photo sometime around midnight, as moody clouds streaked above this distinctive seastack in northern Iceland. #Iceland

Thanks so much for the kind comment, Paul.  As I mentioned on your 500px wall, it looks like you found a lot of great things while you were there.

Now about the photo... Photographing Goðafoss in the winter presents a variety of challenges, the most frustrating of which is the freezing spray. One day, we drove about five hours with the intention of photographing this waterfall at sunset. As we drove up, a storm was starting to clear and beautiful puffy, peachy clouds were starting to form. It was going to be a brilliant sunset and we were excited. After walking out to the rim of the falls and setting up, the freezing temperatures and the heavy spray mixed, allowing a coat of ice to instantly form on any surface including our cameras. While no photography happened that particular evening, we did get decent wintery conditions (shown in this photo) on a different occasion.

We just got back from a really fun and photographically awesome trip to the Hawaiian Island of Kaua'i. And what was the first photo I processed when we got home? This photo of a misty morning up at Mount Rainier last summer...

I know I have not posted on Google+ for ages, but I am going to give it another try starting today.  It is a cold and snowy day in Colorado so it seems appropriate to share this cold and snowy image from last fall.  This is Mount Sneffels in Colorado's San Juan Mountains, which is definitely one of the prettiest mountains in Colorado.

utterly fantastic. Nothing like Colorado in fall when the first snows hit.

The Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon and ice beach are my favorite spots in Iceland. I pulled together a few favorite photos from that spot and wrote little blog post about one of the coolest place for landscape photography I have experienced. You can read it and see five more images through the link below. #Iceland   #landscapephotography

I have had a lot of questions about how I have been able to scale back my paying job to allow me more time for travel and photography over the last two years. Since I plan to write on my photo blog more frequently, this topic seemed like a good place to start.

+Ron Coscorrosa and I are excited to announce the release of our first e-book, a location guide for Iceland. 

If you'd like to purchase it or learn more, please visit

We both underestimated the amount of work that would be involved in producing a product with this scope, but we are both really happy with the end result and were able to produce the book we wish we had for our first trip to Iceland. If you have any questions, please let me know!

+Sarah Marino Understood. Living in NC I got to experience the same wet weather this week. Good to know that it handled the wet as well as it did.
