Day 46 Braved the frigid cold today in Washington DC to celebrate our Moms Birthday. We ate at her favorite restaurant called Lauriol Plaza. It was 18 degrees but with the wind-chill it felt like 9 degrees. Can we say FOOD COMA? This building in Adams Morgan always makes me giggle.

Sundown at Toroweap - Photography by Jared Warren www.jaredwarrenphotography.com After almost a week at Death Valley with mostly bluebird skies, I was pretty exhausted and thinking about calling it good and heading home. However, I had considered a last stop at the Toroweap Overlook (Grand Canyon, North Rim) since I'd never been there before. I'm so glad I decided to go out there. I'm happy with this image I came away with, but the whole visit just rejuvenated me. So many things to enjoy: the fun 4x4 road out to the overlook, the breathtaking view, the peaceful solitude, the gorgeous campground (completely empty except for me). One of my favorite all-around places I've been to so far.

Among the challenges in getting this image were the strong gusty winds coming up out of the canyon, so in addition to trying hard not to fall 3000 feet to my death I was trying to capture the small foreground tree without motion blur from the wind. I ended up using ISO 1600 for just the tree, and longer (ISO 100) exposures for the rest of the terrain. In all I blended 7 different exposures to capture the dynamic range in the sky and to get maximum sharpness in the foreground and midground. - Jared Warren

"Constant Awe" | Iceland

And then those enlightened places, which only existed inside the oniric landscapes of imagination, materialized right in front of me. Something too profound and primitive was happening on that infinite piece of land, inhabiting the strength of a naked and untouched earth, and then also inhabiting an excessively large room inside of me. Sometimes I wipe off its dust and open its windows to let the air flow, but when I glance at it I can only find memories and shadows, longing for a new encounter.

The Story:

A photo made on the South of Iceland, when I was headed to Skogafoss, on the 5th day of the trip. It's not easy for a photographer to drive on the Ring Road in Iceland as you feel like you need to stop every minute to take a photo. In this case I really had to stop as, all of a sudden, a majestic mountain appears at distance, lit by one of most epic sunsets I witnessed during the trip. It was supposed to be a quick stop, but I just couldn't leave the place until it got dark, exploring the endless composition possibilities, while capturing the constantly shifting light. 

Even though I did not know the name of this mountain when I first posted this image in 500px.com, a commenter told me it's Lómagnúpur, definitely an under-rated spot in the island. There are so many little known gems in Iceland hiding behind every corner, and it's impossible not to be in constant awe in this place...

Technical:

Sony a77 + Sigma 10-20mm
Aperture: f/8
Exposure: 1/30 seconds
ISO: 200
Handheld (I was supposedly in a rush, and it would be just a 5 minute stop, which was prolonged to one hour, so my Manfrotto tripod stayed in the car)
Manual focus
Sensor stabilization On
Filters: Formatt Hitech 4 stop ND soft Grad, angled 45 degrees
