Winter Storm Magic

Winter storms can really suck the motivation away from going out with the camera. It’s cold, it’s dark, it’s snowing and you’re left with this challenge of making something happen with all that. Well despite that, they can break up and when they do that fresh coat of snow can be gorgeous. Well up at […]

It Only Takes One

It really does just take one image to make that whole time out with the camera worth while. When a storm is rolling through, dramatic clouds in every direction and the shots are plentiful then you know you have something good. But then they close up and that small window is gone leaving nothing but […]

Fall Color Popped!

The Fall color has begun to pop which is awesome! Over the past week things have really started to change in the landscape world. October is a great month to be out as the trees are turning and mammals are getting those great big bushy winter coats. Without a doubt it’s still one of my […]

Just a Little Light

Robert Burns famous line from To a Mouse, on turning her up in her nest with a plough, The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft agley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,For promis’d joy! sure seems to fit well with photography. We plan and plan and think we have the nest […]

Long Lenses and Landscapes

Fall Color is Around the Corner

It’s so close I can feel the pixels ready to be burned. Fall coloring will happen soon and I can’t wait until it does. Every year becomes another challenge trying to make an image worth remembering that fall season. It overwhelms the senses, the color, the temps, the feeling that comes with end of each […]

Working that One Light

It’s not always easy to be inspired to shoot when the whole sky is nothing but a grey cloud. It happens a lot in the mountains especially the further north you go and sometimes you just have to get over it. It only takes a few seconds where the light pops through and then that […]

Fall means Steam

Spring and Fall yield some of the best photography because of the dramatic changes in temperature. When it gets down to below freezing at night and then warms up in the afternoon to the mid fifties the change can create some great atmospheric effects including steam. With the addition of some clouds the results can […]

From Old to New

The best part of being in England was seeing all the great architecture including some that I really wasn’t expecting to see. During the Grey’s of Westminster sponsored Photo Walk our great guide Michael took us to the Grand Union Canal of London which is pretty impressive being 137 miles of the 300 miles of […]

Tower Bridge of London

As much as I like going to places that are a little less well known but are still really interesting, every now and then you just have to go to the famous spots. They became famous for a reason so that alone says something. While in England I got to see a couple of those […]
