Elk on Dream Lake reprocessed, Dream Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

September 5, 2009

Hey everybody,

This image is from last July at Dream Lake, in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. This morning was one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had as a nature photographer. Having a gigantic bull Elk wander into this scene was just incredible! I’ve been slowly (very slowly) improving my skills at processing, and thought I’d give this one another go.

Mirror Pond Reflection #2, Canaan Valley State Park, West Virginia

…Another from Mirror Pond.


Mirror Pond Reflection #1, Canaan Valley State Park, West Virginia

January 23, 2009

Since I’ve been back, I have probably put 10-15 hours into processing the photos from my journey, and I’m only through with six days of shooting. It’s definitely a good thing I like this part too. I haven’t been able to dive into it the way I’d like, however, because I have to study for my SAT on Saturday. I’m not looking forward to it!

I’m going to be posting images from my long trip for the next few months, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be getting out to shoot as well. I’m going to get out to Barnegat Light, New Jersey for a day or two next week to photograph waterfowl and whatever else comes around.

Here’s one of over 200 images I shot at Mirror Pond on this incredible rainy morning. The color of the leaves was just fantastic. I made some of my favorite autumn images of the year from this location.


Heading out to the Buttes

November 30, 2008

Hey everybody,

I don’t have a whole lot to say this time. I’ve been photographing around Page, AZ and Kanab, UT for the past few days. I got together with/met photographers John Mumaw and George Stocking yesterday to photograph Eggshell Arch (AKA Thanksgiving Arch.) Much to our dismay, we got kicked out… I’m just going to leave it at that. So, we left that area and headed back towards Page, choosing to camp up at Stud Horse Point. We photographed at sunrise, and then I left in a hurry to go photograph some slot canyons.

In the afternoon I ventured out to Nipple Bench and Alstrom Point on the north coast of Lake Powell this afternoon. Here are some shots from the outing. The first one is from the badlands on Nipple Bench, and the next three are from Alstrom Point.





I’ll be heading off tomorrow for Coyote Buttes North, Coyote Buttes South, and the White Pocket. I’ll be back to internet land on the 4th or 5th.

Bull Moose

August 21, 2008

I took this photo in early June as well, up in Maine. I was at Sandy Stream Pond, in Baxter State Park, Maine. I had completely overlooked this image, just like the rainbow I posted earlier. I had just written off my attempts at photographing a Bull Moose as a failure. I now feel differently about the matter.

Rainbow over Sentinel Mountain

August 16, 2008

Here’s one from early June. This photograph was taken just outside of Baxter State Park, Maine. I’ve been going through my files and working up the images I overlooked the first time around editing images from the trip. I guess when I first saw this image I didn’t like the fact that the rainbow seems to be split in two.

There’s a bit of a funny story behind this one. I almost missed this shot because of how hard I hit my head when getting out of my car. I’m clumsy at times…
