The Advance of Light

The Advance of Light

Morning light streams across a meadow in Grand Teton National Park just south of Moran Junction. This is taken just off of the road. It's always good to keep your eyes open even when you are not in one of the "classic" or well know photography spots! Even a canal and dirt road can be a thing of beauty...

Ripples in Time

Time seemed to stand still as we watched the new light slowly spread over waves of sand in Death Valley, California.

Ripples in Time

“Each time a man stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

-Robert F. Kennedy

Manley Beacon

On our trip to Death Valley we photographed at Zabrisky Point 3 times, 2 sunrises and a sunset. The 2nd sunrise we hike up a ridge in the dark to have a different perspective. This is a predawn image looking at the Beacon and into Death Valley.

Predawn Manley Beacon

Zabrisky point is a short walk from the parking lot near Furnace Wells. The view is world class. You can still see Ansel Adams photograph as well as many other famous photographers from this spot. About 20 minutes later the view looked like this...

Another World

I just returned from another world! Death Valley, Mono Lake, and Alabama Hills were wonderful. At a rate of 12 gigabytes a day I've got a lot of images to go through and process. Here is one from a wonderful sunrise at Mono Lake...

On The Road Again

I'm on the road to Death Valley and looking forward to photographing this interesting place. This image is from last summer of Swiftcurrent Lake on a very still morning!

Serenity at Coyote Buttes

Serenity at Coyote Buttes

The 6 mile round trip to The Wave was nearly as interesting as The Wave itself. You hike along Coyote Buttes and look out over an incredible Utah-Arizona landscape. The melting snow made for brilliant, satuated colors in this already colorful area.

The Wave

This is the classic view of "The Wave" on the Utah-Arizona border. The natural formation was incredibly beautiful and I just hope my photography does it justice. To get here you need a BLM permit, drive a very muddy dirt road for 8 miles, and hike 3 miles. The sight was well worth the effort!

Vertigo

Another take on this interesting geological structure. The pool was frozen when we arrived about 9:45 a.m. and still frozen when we left a couple of hours later.
