The River Glows
A nice scene in the mountains of Washington State.
Upon pulling into a location to set up camp I heard a waterfall in the distance and chasing I went. Sometimes in the thick forests of the Pacific Northwest these chases end up being me chasing the breeze blowing through the trees. Fortunately after making my way through the thick forest growth and down a hillside I found this magical grotto like hole. I edited this image to express the feeling of being in this magical spot. I ended up staying here for a couple days.
A nice little scene of yellow aspens leading up to a view of Quandary Peak from a highway 9 lookout near the top of Hoosier Pass outside of Brekenridge, Colorado. Fall 2021
Upper Fall Creek Falls
Upper Fall Creek Falls located in the Columbia River George of Washington State. This shot was a risky one which involved going across a fallen tree over the river. I set up the tripod on the fallen helper to grab this shot. the lower much larger fall was below but it's all about getting that shot!
Caught In the Fall
Upper Falls in the Gifford Pinchot National forest of Washington. I hiked and shot in the rain to capture this image. This image features the one brief moment the sun peeked through the clouds and fog. Captured Fall 2021
This exposure and rock the water is cascading over really brings to mind a sea shell when I look at.
A shot captured at Bowling Bowl Beach in California. The tide did not cooperate so I was unable to get the shot I was after, even after nearly 24 hours here. None the less I had a great time taking long exposures in this specific spot.
Blue Lakes of the San Juans captured during the fall of 2021. This was most likely the last day of this route being easily accessible. I had hiked up the day before but realized in needed to head up earlier to get the right light for this image. So I took on the long steep hike the next day and got what I was looking for!
Rifle Falls on a Winter afternoon. I was looking for a different perspective here. After many tries to get this shot without water splashing onto the lenses I was finally able to get it.
