Adventure in Iceland

I have just returned from two weeks in Iceland- The land of fire and ice. It was one of the places I have long wanted to visit and I finally made it there. I camped my way across the dramatic location along the south and east coasts. It is a very impressive landscape. It has also gotten incredibly popular and busy, as bad as any US national park in peak season. So while I visited some of the major spots, I avoided most others and tried to find some less popular views to have a better experience.

This shot is of Kirkjufell on the Snaefellness penisula. While the waterfall across the road to my left is very popular the view closer to the waters edge was only me. Here I was there for a sunrise. I also photographed the aurora from this spot. This was one of those trips I said "Wow!" a lot. Expect to see a few more images from that trip, especially in my Nightscape Collection.

Set up here is my Gitzo 1348 tripod and Sony A7R3 with Loxia 21mm lens (my most used landscape combo in Iceland)

This image made with a Moto G6.

Adventure!

A nightscape image of my tent set up in the mountains of Great Basin. Under the dark sky of a seldom visited cold desert region I spent a few days exploring and camping last fall. It is my type of adventure- finding places off the beaten path, looking up at the Milky Way and trying to find images to bring home.

Look carefully and see the Andromeda galaxy just above the biggest tree.

Very ready to get back to a place like this!

Aurora Over Yellowstone

The northern lights shine over the Excelsior geyser and the Milky Way peeking through the steam on a night in Yellowstone. This was the first time I saw the aurora. To my eye, I could see a strange band of light but I could not make out the color of it. Took this image and realized it was the aurora. It was one of those really WOW moments in life. Here I was standing alone in the dark listening to the geysers hiss and bubble. Watching the steam plues rise. Seeing the Milky Way blaze in the night sky. Then add in the northern lights. I was impressed beyond belief.

This was one of the most amazing and magical nights I have had as a photographer. It is the kind of fleeting moment in life you want more of. I look forward to seeing sights like this again. Carpe Diem!!!

Zion Slickrock Country by Night

The Milky Way shines above the Slickrock country in Zion NP. An amazing pack the is stunning by day and has dark skies by night.

Note the red is not light painting. I am near a road and it is a car break lights! I liked the effect.

Thinking of Fall

We are at the Labor Day weekend here in the USA and it is when I think Photography Season starts again and I begin to get outside more after the heat of the long summer. Thoughts of cooler weather and autumn colors. Here is a a scene from autumn in Texas. We will not get our best fall color until the end of November but I already look forward to it. Over the next four months I make most of my photos for the year. Looking forward to being out in the field quite a bit and many mornings chasing images.

As Tolkien says......Not all those who wander are lost.

100,000 Followers- WOW!

I saw that this Collection has passed the 100,000 Follower mark. I wanted to say a big Thank You to y'all!! This is kind of a bit different Collection and I hope you like the type of posts about gear and scenes from behind the camera.

One of the things I hope this Collection does is inspire people to get outside, interact with our natural world and see some of the wonders of the planet.

This image is one from a Nightscape Photography trip ( I actually have a whole Collection of Nightscape images) to a location only an hour from where I live. Very few people know about it and I have never met other photographers here. I think it shows that if you explore around where you live you can find beautiful locations for landscape photos and even places with dark enough sky to see the Milky Way, even if you are less than 60 miles from a city with 8 million people.

I waded down the river in the dark and set up my camera on this rock to photograph the Milky Way and its reflection in the water. The setup you see here is my Gitzo 1348 Tripod with Sony A7S and Samyang 12mm fisheye. This is my favorite night photography combo.

So thank you again and I hope to continue to bring you images from the field!!

North Platte River

The winding North Platte River as it runs across the North Park near Walden Colorado. The North Park is a large, broad, flat valley surrounded by mountains. Here the North Platte River twists and turns its way north into Wyoming before finding a route east. Great fly fishing country.

Florida Dune Lake and Milky Way

A view of the glactic core of the Milky Way across a Florida Coastal Dune Lake. It was a hot and muggy night in the Florida Panhandle and I got out early to photograph the Milky Way before the dawn. I visit this dune lake to see how I can get the shot. I was walking down along the lake shore in the grass and then stepped back to include the trees. Nothing like getting in a little nightscape photography when not on a photo trip!

Bluebonnets in Big Bend

Wildflowers of spring blanket the deserts of Big Bend. With the right amount of winter rain bluebonnets and other wildflowers will sparkle across the desert in February and March. Here is a small patch of blues looking toward Cerro Castellan and the Chisos in the late afternoon.
