Right place, right time, no clouds by Harry

Posted on 2018-05-06

So we were up before sunrise, drove to the beach and set up. We were welcomed by a cloudless sky that made our best intentions moot. Oh well, maybe next time.

milky way night sky photography

Rattlesnake Arches by Taylor

Posted on 2015-04-22

Utah is home to some of the darkest skies and fortunately the Milky Way is starting to show itself before the sun rises in the Northern Hemisphere. As spring turns to summer it should start to peak earlier and earlier.

This is a 3 shot vertical panorama. The foreground shot was a blend of many light painted images and the 2 shots for the sky were taken on a star tracker at 2 minutes each.

Yosemite National Park, Merced River, reflection

Cottonwood Dance, Yosemite National Park by Don Smith

Posted on 2014-02-18

I'm convinced if an image doesn't convey the photographer's emotional response to the scene, the image fails - it simply cannot connect with the viewer.

Awaiting sunset at Yosemite's Camp 6 last week, I was intrigued by the lines of these cottonwoods reflecting in the calm Merced River; however, a frozen image was not conveying what I was feeling. "It's the lines, Don, the lines," I heard like a soft whisper in my ears. A slight pan of the camera during my next exposure emphasized those lines

A favorite...

A favorite... by Judy aka [email protected]

Posted on 2015-01-12

Visiting our hometown in New England last summer, we were naturally drawn toward the water, where we had sailed our boat in our younger years. After visiting the marina (left of this spot), we came upon this bucolic scene that evoked so many happy memories. Leaving the dock, we would motor out the channel, passing a few boats anchored along the river as you see here. On hot summer nights we could sail all the way up harbor and 'ghost' right into our slip. Sigh ... it was so peaceful.

Tucson Arizona wedding photography photojournalism

This was moments after Megan and Anthony walked down the aisle freshly married. A very emotional experience for these newlyweds and I was lucky enough to have been asked to capture it for them.

God Beams, Hana Coast, Maui, Hawaii by Don Smith

Posted on 2014-04-05

If you think a more expensive camera will make you a better photographer, I'd strongly disagree. In my new blog "Cameras Don't Make Images, People Do" I show examples proving it is the individual who makes images, not the equipment.

Sunrise and reflections in Death Valley

Rising Sun and Setting Moon by James

Posted on 2015-03-23

The lighting was less than ideal but the reflections did capture my interest. Most of the time there is no water in these salt flats- without the reflections this would not be an area of interest.

In the llama competition at the Fort Worth Stock Show the biggest ovation came during the kiddie costume class for the only competitors, CVL Neverland Jake and 4-year-old Emily Carter.

Jake wore a royal purple outfit complete with a crown, while Emily, of Rogersville, Mo., went with her lilac princess gown and tiara.

A few minutes later, they won a blue ribbon as well as a championship ribbon that was taller than Emily.

Manhattanhenge on 34th Street

Manhattanhenge by Fran

Posted on 2018-07-13

The Druids came out in Manhattan last night, as seen here on 34th Street. Four times per year, in May and July, thousands of New Yorkers and tourists flock to Manhattan’s streets for a glimpse of the celestial sunset event known as Manhattanhenge. It features a perfectly aligned sunset beaming down the east and west streets of Manhattan's grid. This results in a fireball of a sunset that illuminates the north and south sides of the city's skyscrapers.

"A Left-Eyed View", "Sedona"

Cathedral Rock #4 by Steven

Posted on 2013-06-21

Geologically, Cathedral Rock is carved from the Permian Schnebly Hill formation, a redbed sandstone formed from coastal sand dunes near the shoreline of the ancient Pedregosa Sea. Ripple marks are prominent along the lower Cathedral Rock trail, and a black basalt dike may be seen in the first saddle.

This view was captured from Chapel of the Holy Cross.

O.W. Brady Grocery by Harry

Posted on 2017-01-21

The son of O.W. drove up while we were shooting. He was a bit upset that we were trespassing but became pleasant when we convinced him we were photographing and not vandalizing. He said the store has been closed about 20 years because nobody shopped there after they "opened the Food Loin and such."

Funnel Cloud Over Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, CA

Funnel Cloud Over Alabama Hills by Don Smith

Posted on 2015-02-07

We finished up Gary Hart's Death Valley Workshop in the Alabama Hills yesterday morning. The winds aloft were creating some very cool cloud formations and I actually did a bit of jogging (first time since the knee replacement) to get this scene captured before the warm light fell off the boulders. I did my global tonal balancing in LR5, then used the Dynamic Contrast filter in onOne Perfect Photo Suite 9 to bring out the detail in the rocks but used the Large slider to fine-tune the cloud.

Montana rock balance

Montana Rock Balance by Joyce

Posted on 2014-09-17

Somebody keeps putting up these impossible looking balances on the roadside. They are not those flat ones that are easy to layer. I had to record these, because they are rugged and daring, 4 or 5 feet tall, and magically balanced, but the surroundings aren't bad either, huh?

Autumn at the Gateway Arch

Autumn Arch ... by Ron

Posted on 2008-11-09

This is another of my special places, here, in my hometown. I'm inspired by the architectural ingenuity and design aesthetic of this timeless monument. It rises up 630 feet (192 meters) above the Mississippi River and is surrounded by a maturing forest of trees and reflecting pools. The construction was completed in 1968, while I was an elementary school student. It has always intrigued me and inspired me. I visit, here, often.

"Black Diamond", Covered Wagon, Sabourin

Covered Wagon Tour of Back Country by Steven

Posted on 2015-11-16

To get a real sense of old time Alaska, we traveled like the original pioneers did - by horse-drawn wagon. A bumpy ride on Black Diamond’s Covered Wagon Adventure took us on a trip through time. Guides filled us in on the area’s history and natural treasure while pulled through the Alaskan tundra with the mountains of nearby Denali National Park hovering overhead. The Covered Wagon Ride was pulled by two beautiful Draft horses.

We have a big fundraising event at our house with three singer/songwriters perform. It is to help The Because Project of which my husband is a big part. They make several trips to Haiti each year offering support to this impoverished nation. This is Judy Paster when I saw her perform in Nashville. She is one of the musicians who will be singing at our event today.

Montana Stars, Night Sky

Montana Stars, Night Sky by Linda Candilas

Posted on 2014-12-04

This was taken in Rock Creek, Montana, a hole in the clouds opened up just long enough for me to get my first shoots of the stars. The red in the background is a small town called Deer Lodge, at least 10 miles away, and a little fog around the trees but I like the red it caused.

En route pour Dead Horse Point State Park, nous grimpons face au vent pendant 40 km! Heureusement, la vue en vaut la peine.

On the road to Dead Horse Point State Park, we're struggling uphill against the wind for 25 miles. Hopefully, the view is worth the effort!

The Chase by Ryan Hammond

Posted on 2016-02-11

Towards the end of this wedding that I recently photographed, I kept watching this little Ring Bearer having the time of his life chasing the Flower Girl. Then this happened, perfectly capping the end of the night. He actually held on for several seconds as she playfully dragged him behind over the polished wooden dance floor.

"A Left-Eyed View", Sabourin, Century Plant, Agave

Century Plant by Steven

Posted on 2015-04-09

So named because it is said to bloom once a century, the Century Plant (Agave americana) in fact blooms after a decade or two of growth. When it is ready, it sends up a single thirty-foot stalk which produces an impressive blossom. So much energy is spent growing this flower that the plant dies shortly afterward. Side shoots growing around the base ensure a new generation of plants.

Ghost Ship, SS Palo Alto, Seacliffe State Beach

Ghost Ship, SS Palo Alto by Don Smith

Posted on 2016-03-04

I've photographed the SS Palo Alto many times over the years but returned late yesterday as an approaching storm was about to hit the central coast of CA. This time I added a Singh-Ray ND filter, which allowed for a long 8.5 min exposure to give the water and moving clouds a mysterious feel.

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
Yesterday I posted a photo of one of two grizzlies I saw in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. I'm sad to tell you that according to the sign, they are not allowed to ride bikes in the park. What's next? Banned from driving a car?
