Devilish – Southern Utah

Another image from my southern Utah adventures in late March of 2013.  After sleeping in my car (like usual) the night before, my alarm went off around 4am to be able to capture the stars I had previously scouted at a different spot in this section.  As the sun rose and the landscape changed I began to wander around to see what I could find.  These amazing formations were all over and the trick was to find something to show off how weird of a place it was.  Luckily the previously clear sky (good for stars) was giving way to some unique clouds and I returned to a spot I had found the evening before.  Given the texture of the rock and the cool clouds in the sky this one had some possibility.  I spent another 30-45 minutes enjoying the solitude as I played like a kid in a playground.  Then off for what was to be an epic day in slot canyons and over 6 miles of hiking.  Nonstop!
Much thanks!

Fun in Fall

Unreleased Autumn Adirondacks Had the opportunity to shoot fall color in upstate NY in late sept. This was taken after scouting the location the day before. I returned for sunrise and preceded to shoot for for over 2 hours as the fog went from completely socked in to completely gone and blue skies. During this transition phase there was some wonderful light coming over the ridgeline and was able to capture this scene!
Much thanks!

Untitled Namalokama (unreleased)
After leaving aFeinberg Gallery St. Regis-Princeville yesterday (12/22), I was headed down to Hanalei and the light was just spectacular. I’ve been after a certain shot (this is very close) and managed to pull over and capture a few images of the remarkable scene. Lucky we live Kaua’i!

A Sunrise and a Waterfall

Another vision photograph that I had the opportunity to chase a couple of weeks ago.  Leaving the house and looking up the clouds were certainly promising.  Mentally I gave it a pretty good chance of a fun sunrise.  Of course leaving a few minutes late for sunrise meant driving like crazy up to the falls as the sky started to explode with color.  Wailua Falls is one of the most popular places to visit as it offers easy viewing to a spectacular waterfall.  The key, of course, is getting something different.  For this particular shot that means a slightly altered perspective and crazy light!  Never a bad combo.  Of course this was just the precursor to the ‘real’ goal for the adventure.  But that’s another story for another time 🙂
