Here’s the last of my Great Falls shots for the year. I swear! I won’t have any more mornings to spend at Great Falls until next year. I’m quite excited, actually. I’m just a few days away from beginning a massive photo trip. I’ll be leaving on the First of October, and getting back in Mid-December. I plan to photograph Autumn foliage throughout the Blue Ridge, Wildlife in Texas, and wintry desert scenes throughout the southwest. It’s going to be a marathon, and it’s going to put my dedication to test, but I know I can do it!
Be sure to check back for updates as I plan on updating as much as possible from the road.
Anyways, this photo was taken during the little “group outing” on September 14th. Joe, Chris, Pini, and I all made some quality images in the breaking fog at sunrise.

Here’s a photo from one of my many Great Falls outings from this and last month. All morning the clouds looked like they were going to produce more dramatic light than this, but I’ll take it however it comes! Some ambitious work on CS3 really makes a shot stand out from time to time.

In this post you’ll see yet another shot from one of my many Great Falls sunrises with Chris Kayler. On this particular morning, the sky was fairly overcast, and the color never really came out any more then this. I still think this was a nice scene. It was on this morning that I came across a really attractive bit of lichens on the overlook rocks that I hope to utilize with better light.

I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time in preparation for a rather lengthy trip this fall and winter. I’ll be photographing autumn foliage throughout the Blue Ridge, Wildlife in Texas, and winter desert scenes throughout Arizona and Utah. My journey begins in the West Virginia highlands, and should wrap up around Capitol Reef NP, Utah. I’ll be out for over two months, and I absolutely can’t wait.
Anyhow, enough about that. This is yet another Great Falls shot from the trip with Joe, Chris, and Pini. I used the backlit fog to my advantage, and composed with a somewhat unique composition (for me, at least.

I like this version a bit more, now that I think about it.

Here’s a shot from a recent outing to Great Falls with Joe Rossbach, Chris Kayler, and Pini Goldman. It was quite foggy on the gorge when we arrived, but it cleared a half hour or so after the sun rose. This is one of the few vertical compositions I tried. I wish the fog broke up a few minutes earlier, but I’m happy with this shot regardless.

Here’s a photograph from last week up at Great Falls National Park. I met up with another photographer, Chris Kayler, to photograph the sunrise. The shooting conditions were pretty nice. The skies were very clear, which was less than ideal, but there was a good amount of mist rising off the water, which is characteristic of this time of year. I showed up a bit late and I think I missed the best light. That’s okay, though, since I have no shortage of days I can go back. I live only 15 minutes away.
Anyway, here’s my favorite shot from that morning. I’ll be heading back a few times this week, so look out for more shots soon. I also had the opportunity to photograph shorebirds in Conneaut, Ohio, so I’ll be posting plenty of those images as well!
