This is an image made deeper into the Icelandic countryside after a climb up a hill. This is a geothermal field where steam just bubbles out of the ground. You can find these all over Iceland. This image doesn’t give a hint on how bad it smells. A very heavy sulfa smell. Es it looks nice against a sunset. Made with a Phase One P65+.
Moab is a town you stay in and all around Moab are one of the country’s largest areas to shoot pictures. Amazing images abound around every turn. This is a photographer’s paradise as when the light decides to play you can get some great shots. This one was made in Arches National Park right outside of Moab.
While photographing in Death Valley I visited the Artist Pallet are to shoot sunset. There on the side of the road was this motorcycle guy leaning back on his bike watching the mountains light up in all the magic they do. I went p to take pictures and I started talking to this guy. Turns out he has been cruising the highways for 17 years. everything he owns or needs is packed on the back of this bike. I asked if he would pose for some shots and he was more than cooperative. This is the result of the shot. I did some post work on this image in Photoshop to make it a bit different.
Alaska is a great frontier and such a beautiful state. I
was very fortunate on my last trip to Denali to have clear weather and I got some great shots go McKinley. This is a shot taken on one of side roads and it was just set up perfectly. Little cottage on a lake with reflection and mountains in the back ground.
One more image from today’s image edit session. While cruising on a Zodiac around the Iceberg Graveyard we happened to spy a leopard seal. Nasty animals. As we cruise by his iceberg island I saw another Iceberg in the distance. I waited for the shot to line up and bang, I got it.
As you can tell from previous posts I was leading a PODAS workshop in Monument Valley and the Slot Canyons last wee. We had a great time and great images. To do photography in remote areas we needed to use Indian guides. We had 4 really great guides in Monument Valley. The guide who was driving the 4WD drive I was in had many of his own secret spots. Seems all the Indian guides have locations that they consider theirs. This was one of those spots. Very nice at sunrise.
This is a shot made in Olympic National Park. One of my favorite National Parks, mainly because there is so much diverse landscape to shoot. I made this on Hurricane Ridge and off of a fire road I ventured to travel on. The sky was so blue that day and the color looked so incredible. Once I switched it over to BW though the image just jumped. Shot with a Phase One P65+.
