I have posted other images here of waterfalls. Seems I shoot a lots of them. I have also posted images from Rickets Glen here. This place is in Pennsylvania. Great place. There are around 27 falls along two different trails. So, it is a 2 or three day trip to get the images and do it right. This is one of the falls there. I may be tempted to drive back there again this year.
I am getting stoked to go back to Iceland in 5 weeks. So it’s fun to go through all my previous images and see what I have shot before. This is one image from one of the many geo thermal fields that can be found in Iceland. They look very unique. Too bad you can’t smell how bad they are. Like two million rotten eggs.
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.
While wandering around the water front of Buenos Aires I cam to a series of derelict ships that look like they were tied to the docks there and forgotten. This ship looked like it used to be some sort of big dinner cruise boat. It was completely stripped and all the was left was rusting metal. Now of course I love rust and decay and I really liked the symmetry.
In norther California there is magnificent area called the Redwood Forrest. Giant moss covered trees and a beautiful area. You can wander the road pull off and take a short hike into these woods and always come back with exceptional images. I used a Phase One P65+ to do these shot. The detail in the prints which I have enlarged to 48×55 is amazing.
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+.
Every now and then I need a rust fix and this is as good as it gets. I have been re-woring many of my images in my spare time and I just love the way this one looks. It was shot with a Phase One camera so detail and dynamic range are exceptional. It is a shot of a tank like vehicle used in Antarctica to get around in the snow. For some reason Antarctica environment makes the best rust. I just love the geometry and color of this shot.
Hard to believe that in such a pristine place you can find tanks. In antarctica on one of our stops we came across these tanks with aircraft rotary engines in a field near an abandoned US Research base. You must know if you are a regular follower that I have a thing for rust. And, of all places in this snow field I got my full dose.
Alaska is an amazing state. So many things to photograph. This is an image made right outside of Denali National Park and shows Mount McKinley which is usually obscured by clouds. I was fortunate enough to be in the Denali area for a few days of absolutely great weather. I have a few more of this magnificent mountain that I will publish in the future.
Here is another image from Rickets Glen. While not gigantic waterfalls, they sure are pretty.
Once again on one of my walk a bouts in Chicago I saw this image on a bridge in . Carefully lined it up and waited for the person to come into the frame. Do you like it? Kind of cool, It shows a lot about Chicago, old, new and lots of riveted steel and iron. Taken with a Phase One P65+. Yes you can do street photography with it.
You can find amazing places close to home sometimes. One of those places is Rickets Glenn Park in pennsylvania. There are 26 waterfalls there and you can spend several days shooting them. You have to do some hiking but it is quite beautiful especially in early October when the colors change. I’ll be posting more images from this wonderful place in coming days.
