Devil's Divide

I took this image over the summer in Jasper National Park.
The hike in was long and muddy, but once I reached this valley I was truly stunned. I have seen images from here, but being there for myself was simply wonderful. 

The winners of this year's ANZANG photography contest were recently announced and my image "bird tree" was named runner-up for the monochrome category. Please follow the link below to check out some of the other winners!

The major cause of rain production is moisture moving along three-dimensional zones of temperature and moisture contrasts known as weather fronts. If enough moisture and upward motion is present, precipitation falls from convective clouds (those with strong upward vertical motion) such as cumulonimbus (thunder clouds) which can organize into narrow rainbands. In mountainous areas, heavy precipitation is possible where upslope flow is maximized within windward sides of the terrain at elevation which forces moist air to condense and fall out as rainfall along the sides of mountains. On the leeward side of mountains, desert climates can exist due to the dry air caused by downslope flow which causes heating and drying of the air mass. The movement of the monsoon trough, or intertropical convergence zone, brings rainy seasons to savannah climes

End of the World

This is a classic view of the Neist Point (Rubha na h-Eist), the most westerly point on the Isle of Skye; Scotland. Neist Point was used as the dramatic setting for a number of scenes in famous movie Breaking The Waves directed by Lars von Trier that won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. It is also excellent place to look for whales, dolphins and basking sharks.

All your pluses/comments are much appreciated.
Have a nice weekend!

Check out this beauty from Alex Noriega! Mono lake done right!
"Six Hundred"

The last 600 seconds of light at California's Mono Lake, on a summer evening last July. Looks best on black - the white background on G+ is tufa king bright! (thanks for that one, +Ron Coscorrosa)

After six great months with friends and family in the coldest metro area in the US, I think it's yet again time for a more temperate clime - where winter is optional, and more conducive to making landscape photographs. The west is calling. I should have at least one fresh image of the frigid north for you all before I move back to Portland, Oregon at the end of the month.

If you like the way my images look, you may be interested in knowing I teach my processing workflow over Skype! Please visit my website for more information: www.alexnoriegaphotography.com

This Lake is Pure Lava ... Twisted Sifter -- "In this amazing photo we see the lava lake at Mount Nyiragongo, an active stratovolcano inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The volcano has erupted at least 34 times since 1882, creating various-sized lava lakes that have formed, cratered, drained and reformed. The image above (taken in 2011) shows the most recent iteration of the mountain’s lava lake. It was formed from a 2002 eruption. 

Lava lakes are large volumes of molten lava, usually basaltic, contained in a volcanic vent, crater, or broad depression. The term is used to describe both lava lakes that are wholly or partly molten and those that are solidified (sometimes referred to as frozen lava lakes). 

Lava lakes can form in three ways:

1. From one or more vents in a crater that erupts enough lava to partially fill the crater

2. When lava pours into a crater or broad depression and partially fills the crater

3. Atop a new vent that erupts lava continuously for a period of several weeks or more and slowly builds a crater progressively higher than the surrounding ground

The lava lake at Mount Nyiragongo is one of only four persistent/near-persistent lava lakes in recent decades.  ..."
