Most of our trips to Idaho Falls are "short & sweet" either for business for family visits allowing little time for photo excursions.  We'll be here a week this time so I thought that I would check out some of the local "hot spots".

Big Cypress is a really nice place in the Everglades especially on loop road

Here are some photos from the road.  Nothing spectacular, just recording our travels.  We're in Branson, MO today.

Experiences and stories  - 
 
We have had some awesome lightning storms come through the Salmon Valley.  For night time captures I use a wide aperture (f5.6) ISO 100-400 depending upon how long between strikes (shorter time, lower ISO) manual focus on infinity and bulb mode.  I hold the shutter open until I see a strike (or two) or until the photo would be over exposed (usually 30 sec but trial & error).  Daytime lightning is captured with a "lightning trigger", aperture priority, f11, ISO 100.  Camera on tripod and protected with a rain cover in both cases.  Most important--stay safe!

The important thing to know is how thunderstorms behave.  Know your weather patterns and where the storms move in your area.  Where we live, the storms usually follow the mountains on either side of the river valley and are usually 10-20 miles away.  Care should always be taken as lightning can strike from as much as 20 miles distant.  I set up in an area that has higher mountains near by and retreat to shelter when strike and thunder is less than 10 sec. apart.

Mother Nature put on quite a show on the 2nd of August.  I was able to capture a number of different strikes.  The first one, however, was from todays storm that passed through.  Didn't catch any strikes but thought this cloud looked very menacing.

Passonate Photographer & Digital Editor
Introduction

Karen Seagle-Warnberg is a landscape photographer currently residing in Salmon, Idaho.  She retains her maiden name (Seagle) as a tribute to family members who taught her the basics of photography at an early age.  She assumed her husband's name (Warnberg) in honor of his re-introduction of photography in her life.   Beginning in her teens with a Twin-Lens Reflex camera, she learned the basics of exposure, composition and film developing. After a hiatus of almost 40 years, the advent of the digital camera and editing techniques allowed Karen to unleash the full range of her artistic visions. 

 

Originally from California, Karen traveled extensively in the Golden State, recording her impressions.  Retirement allowed her to expand her horizons to all of the western states, with an emphasis on National, State and Local Parks  While Karen primarily focuses on landscapes, she captures wildlife when the opportunity presents itself.  Her works have been recognized by the State of California, Lemhi County and National Geographic.

Karen's latest project is learning the intricacies of flash photography, including macro, splash and portrait shooting.
