"Dunesday"
By +Ryan Buchanan exposurescape.com I’ve shot in difficult conditions before but this day—THIS DAY, was a whole different ballgame. Sitting in our car, @rosskykerphoto and I were debating on if we should even head out into this monstrous glowing cloud of sand that had completely engulfed the Mesquite dunes of Death Valley. You couldn’t see a thing. Of course, lacking any sort of suitable gear for constant 40+ mph winds, I pulled my buff over my entire face and put my sunglasses on and wrapped my camera in my plastic rain sleeve and went for it. WOW, not only was I mostly blind from my homemade facemask, the blowing sand and deafening wind was absolutely nuts. We must have looked like blind zombies roaming out into the dunes. It was slow going and we couldn’t hear each other at all. A few times we’d walk into dip in the dune that funneled all the wind right through it and we’d have to turn back. I can’t even guess how fast that wind was. Finally got to a spot and we did some meaningless hand gestures to each other and I laughed at the thought of trying to set up my tripod so I just turned into the wind and started firing away with my 70-200mm. Interestingly, the wind was so powerful it had carved up the dunes and you can see some of the deep cuts revealing the deeper wet patterns in the sand from the rains weeks before. In no time the sun crept behind the mountains thanks to our speedy arrival. Literally choking on sand at this point, we headed back. It took a week to get the sand out of our eyes and teeth and lungs. It gave me a weird sinus sound to my voice which was a nice touch. And “blood-eye” Ross will tell you of his sand-tears and thankfully non-permanent eye damage. In no way is this a great shot by any means, but just the experience alone makes it one of the more memorable photo ops I’ve ever had. You can check out my video in my IG feed where I had a chance to catch some this. Thanks for looking! - Ryan Buchanan

"Hiker Watches Massive Aurora in the Canadian Badlands"
By Marc Massie www.marcmassie.com With the weather in the mountains looking iffy last night, we head out to the badlands hoping to capture the milky way under clear skies. What we never expected to witness was the best aurora show that I have personally ever seen here in Alberta. The light pulsed all night until the sun started to rise. I guess the only downside is that I didn't get one good shot of the milky way... but given what we did get, I'm not complaining at all. - Marc Massie

"Cuernos del Paine"
By Daniel Kordan (+Danil Korzhonov) www.danielkordan.com This morning we walked on the path under the heavy rain. I felt quite cruel to take my group out of the bus in such conditions, but you never know what to expect from Patagonia weather. And truly in 10 minutes rain went away opening mountains with their incredible beauty!

"Core"
By +Peter Coskun www.pjcphotography.com It's hard to imagine that this photo was taken over six years ago. This was from the very first time I ever stepped foot into a slot canyon. I was clueless as to how to shoot it, overwhelmed at the sheer beauty of such a unique landscape. I had seen many photos of this place in my life, even before ever picking up a camera. I wanted to visit it and see it for myself and maybe try to get a slightly decent photo. I remember taking this trip with my parents who weren't exactly sure what we were getting ourselves into. We went to one of the local tour companies in the Page area and chose a tour of the ever popular upper antelope canyon. Even back then in 2011, it was still pretty crowded. I haven't been back since, but I can only imagine the zoo like atmosphere of being herded through this canyon by guides. This was the very first scene that took my interest while in the canyon, looking straight up into one of the few canyon openings where the sky was visible. At this particular moment, I was hooked on slot canyons and photographing them. I am excited to get into a few of them this weekend and can't wait to see what I come back with. - Peter Coskun
