Happy Monday! For the first time in years, I have time to slow down... No urgent work projects or ebooks to write, just time to catch up on the things I have been wanting to do like write more and process photos from trips that fell through the cracks.

Looking through the photos from a two-week trip to the Hawaiian island of Kauai was so much fun that I processed all of the photos I liked from the trip and will be sharing them over the next few weeks. This is from Waimea Canyon. The bright green trees add such a nice contrast with the red rocks, and we were lucky to have some really dynamic weather on this particular day. #landscapephotography   #hawaii   #kauai

A lovely image of #Iceland  from Ian Plant.  I love the soft colors here (my favorite kind of light). 
 
Frozen ice in the Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon, Iceland. Seen lots of snow and ice during my trip to Iceland, although I was enjoying 50+ degree weather today! P.S. Check out the Winter Iceland Photo Tour run by Rich Bernabe through our company Epic Destinations: http://epicphotodestinations.com/iceland-winter-photo-tour.html

I occasionally pull together a blog post with some reading recommendations for landscape and nature photographers. Here is my most recent list with links to posts about some of the negative aspects of the 500px photo-sharing site and larger implications for landscape photography, building a creative business with integrity, emerging legal issues related to photographing on public land, and a few more. Hope you enjoy a few of these reads as much as I did. #landscapephotography   #naturephotography   
I enjoy reading photography blogs and related publications, with many serving as excellent sources of inspiration and thought-provoking ideas that I use to help shape and inform my own work. The following six articles have stood out over the last few weeks in their discussion of important topics for landscape photographers. One thread that weaves many of these selections together is the question of motivation and what drives a photogr...

I hear that a lot, unfortunately. Have you figured out why? Is it for the sort of projects you (have to) do in order to generate an income? Or the general things that you didn't have to deal with when you were free to do it as a hobby?
I like to believe it must be possible to do business without losing passion. I honestly hope I am not too naive.

Hillside Layers. I have photographed this scene a few different times but I liked it much more this year.  The somewhat bare trees added an interesting detail that I had not seen before.  Gunnison National Forest, Colorado.

I am making slow progress on my black and white portfolio of Iceland images and hope to have it finished by the end of August (which I also said about July!). 

About this image: Fields of moss-covered boulders are fairly common in Iceland and are an interesting subject to photograph because of all the interesting shapes and forms. They are also shockingly soft and cushy - like fields of little green clouds - except for when you step through an unseen hole in the moss and the sharp lava rocks below give you a reminder that this is not, in fact, a field of clouds.

A recent post from our blog with some thoughts on photo consumption, conformity, and copying in #landscapephotography . Thanks for reading. #photography  
I will start out this post with an important note.  This is not a rant due to sour grapes or feeling left out of the clique of popular kids.  When I was posting regularly on 500px, my images often made it to the front page and even filled the top slot on the site on a few occasions.  I am also not intending to criticize or offend any individual photographers who are active on 500px but am instead commenting on the negative culture that ...

We have been hanging out in the wonderfully warm weather of the California deserts for the last few weeks, including some time at Joshua Tree National Park. A few photos and a bit about our time in the park can be found on our travel journal blog here: http://www.naturephotoguides.com/travel/blog/camping-hiking-joshua-tree-national-park

+Steve Cole  - Even without the over-cooking, this looks like a really interesting place.  The stripes make them different from any badlands I have visited.

We just got back from a week in Death Valley National Park and enjoyed some nice conditions (this photo is from a few years ago). If you are planning to head to the park early next year, Zabriskie Point will be closed through the end of April. The NPS is rebuilding the overlook because the wall is deteriorating and it is dangerous for visitors. You may still be able to access the Zabriskie area via hiking the Golden Canyon or Gower Gulch Trails, depending on where the NPS cuts off access. Just FYI!

My latest post for +Ian Plant Dreamscapes blog... Considering our very dry spell with "good conditions" over the last year and a half, I talk a little about how eliminating expectations for trips has made them more enjoyable and photographically productive for me. The post includes a few photos from our recent fall colors trip in Colorado, too.
Photographer Sarah Marino, author of Beyond the Grand Landscape, writes about how her fall photography improved by letting go of expectations for pre-conceived

+Ron Coscorrosa and I are excited to be joining +Richard Bernabe as associate instructors for his 2015 Epic Iceland photo tour. Richard and +Ian Plant recently started Epic Photo Destinations and have a great line-up of workshops for this year and next year. If you are looking for a photo adventure, you should take a look at their schedule: http://epicphotodestinations.com/. You can learn more about the Iceland tour at the same link. Fall colors + possibility of aurora + incredible landscapes should all make for a great trip!
