The Alvord Desert, in a remote section of southeastern Oregon, is one great place to spend a weekend exploring. The expansive playa has all kinds of variety and we were fortunate to find many different patterns and textures (including some water and ice - coming soon!). Although there was little color in the sky on this particular morning, these dark and dramatic clouds were great to photograph.

Wintry Godafoss, Northern Iceland

If you are planning a trip to Iceland, you might be interested in our new e-book, Forever Light: The Landscape Photographer’s Guide to Iceland. You can learn more at http://naturephotoguides.com/e-books/iceland/.

Now about the photo... Photographing Goðafoss in the winter presents a variety of challenges, the most frustrating of which is the freezing spray. One day, we drove about five hours with the intention of photographing this waterfall at sunset. As we drove up, a storm was starting to clear and beautiful puffy, peachy clouds were starting to form. It was going to be a brilliant sunset and we were excited. After walking out to the rim of the falls and setting up, the freezing temperatures and the heavy spray mixed, allowing a coat of ice to instantly form on any surface including our cameras. While no photography happened that particulareve... more »

Happy Monday! For the first time in years, I have time to slow down... No urgent work projects or ebooks to write, just time to catch up on the things I have been wanting to do like write more and process photos from trips that fell through the cracks.

Looking through the photos from a two-week trip to the Hawaiian island of Kauai was so much fun that I processed all of the photos I liked from the trip and will be sharing them over the next few weeks. This is from Waimea Canyon. The bright green trees add such a nice contrast with the red rocks, and we were lucky to have some really dynamic weather on this particular day. #landscapephotography   #hawaii   #kauai

A lovely image of #Iceland  from Ian Plant.  I love the soft colors here (my favorite kind of light). 

Frozen ice in the Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon, Iceland. Seen lots of snow and ice during my trip to Iceland, although I was enjoying 50+ degree weather today! P.S.

I occasionally pull together a blog post with some reading recommendations for landscape and nature photographers. Here is my most recent list with links to posts about some of the negative aspects of the 500px photo-sharing site and larger implications for landscape photography, building a creative business with integrity, emerging legal issues related to photographing on public land, and a few more. Hope you enjoy a few of these reads as much as I did. #landscapephotography   #naturephotography

We just got back from a week in Death Valley National Park and enjoyed some nice conditions (this photo is from a few years ago). If you are planning to head to the park early next year, Zabriskie Point will be closed through the end of April. The NPS is rebuilding the overlook because the wall is deteriorating and it is dangerous for visitors. You may still be able to access the Zabriskie area via hiking the Golden Canyon or Gower Gulch Trails, depending on where the NPS cuts off access. Just FYI!

Hillside Layers. I have photographed this scene a few different times but I liked it much more this year.  The somewhat bare trees added an interesting detail that I had not seen before.  Gunnison National Forest, Colorado.

My latest post for +Ian Plant Dreamscapes blog... Considering our very dry spell with "good conditions" over the last year and a half, I talk a little about how eliminating expectations for trips has made them more enjoyable and photographically productive for me. The post includes a few photos from our recent fall colors trip in Colorado, too.

I am making slow progress on my black and white portfolio of Iceland images and hope to have it finished by the end of August (which I also said about July!). 

About this image: Fields of moss-covered boulders are fairly common in Iceland and are an interesting subject to photograph because of all the interesting shapes and forms. They are also shockingly soft and cushy - like fields of little green clouds - except for when you step through an unseen hole in the moss and the sharp lava rocks below give you a reminder that this is not, in fact, a field of clouds.

Badlands National Park in South Dakota is a bit of a hidden gem and one of my favorite places in the midwest. The soft light at sunset made these hills glow in such a pretty pink.  Bonus - being near Wall Drug and getting to experience that bizarre bit of Americana (and delicious butterscotch sundaes!). #southdakota  #nationalpark

I am not a morning person, which is a poor quality for a landscape photographer.  I always struggle to find the motivation to wake up to photograph sunrise, even when I only have to roll out of my sleeping bag and walk ten feet.  The idea of hiking in the dark to a sunrise spot always seems so horribly unpleasant, at least until we get moving.  

On this particular morning, +Ron Coscorrosa and I met our friend/fellow photographer +Koveh Tavakkol at the trailhead at 2:45 am [craziness] for a hike up a three-mile long rock-filled, endless mud puddle to arrive at Blue Lake in Colorado’s Indian Peaks Wilderness.  Here, Mount Toll (12,979’) rises over the mostly frozen lake, a few early wildflowers peeking out along the shore.  It is a good thing we arrived early, as the soft clouds and some fading moonlight made for some pretty twilight conditions.  As much as I hate getting up early,seeing this... more »

We just got back from spending some time in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, including four stops at the Desert Botanical Gardens (yes, four - I love that place!). I have not had a chance to process any of my photos from this trip but took this abstract photo of what I think is a Desert Spoon (a type of agave) on a trip last year.

After a bunch of gear-related issues on recent trips, I have finally decided I need to buy a back-up camera. I have narrowed it down to the Canon 6D but have found very few comments about the camera from landscape photographers. Any landscape photographers have an opinion on the 6D?  I will probably either get a 6D or another 5D Mark II.  Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Ricketts Glen Autumn
After a great week in Vermont, we headed to Acadia National Park in Maine to see if we could catch some fall colors and coastal scenery before I had to fly back to Denver for work. Acadia turned out to be a completely mixed bag – stunningly beautiful and overwhelmingly busy. After a few days of not feeling the touristy/overwhelmed with photographers scene, we headed back to Vermont and all of the beautiful leaves we had left a few days earlier were on the ground, blown off the trees by a storm.

To add a final last little bit of crazy to a trip that started in the Canadian Rockies with a forty mile backpack, we took a gamble on a somewhat overcast forecast and an extra five hours of driving to get to Ricketts Glen in Pennsylvania. It completely paid off with one last perfect day of photographing waterfalls, streams, and fall colors.

White Pocket is a large mass of crazy sandstone in Arizona, difficult to reach because of challenging road conditions. I visited last year for less than 12 hours and it was almost painful to leave because it was such a cool area. That short trip pushed White Pocket to the top of my photography locations list, so +Ron Coscorrosa and I spent some extended time out there a few weeks ago. It was four days of photography bliss and a lot of fun.

Most of the images I have seen from the Tonquin Valley are of the dramatic Ramparts.  I really like this more unique and equally beautiful take on this location.

Bubbling blue mud pots at the Hverir geothermal area in northern Iceland

This was one incredible night of photography, with endless light from sunset through sunrise the next morning (since it never gets dark at night during the time of year when this was taken).

Botany Bay Sunrise

Erosion has left tree skeletons along the beach at Botany Bay on Edisto Island in South Carolina. This morning, we were treated to a dramatic and stormy sunrise, with the clouds breaking just as the sun came up.

I just got back from a wonderful trip up to the Pacific Northwest. The wildflowers at Mount Rainier were spectacular this year and it was fun to meet a lot of other photographers along the way. 

On our way back to Colorado, we stopped at the Alvord Playa in southeastern Oregon.  This was my second time at this location and it has quickly become one of my favorite places to photograph.  Even though the forecast predicted few clouds, we were treated to an afternoon of wild weather and an evening of incredible, once-a-year sunset light in every direction. 

To see the view in the opposite direction, check out +Ron Coscorrosa 's dramatic and beautiful photo from this evening: https://plus.google.com/u/0/109246107083980777171/posts/B19YYJtqs7V

I just returned from spending a few days exploring the Great Sand Dunes, the Bisti Badlands Wilderness, and White Sands National Monument with +Ron Coscorrosa .  We lucked out with really nice conditions at each place we visited, which has derailed my plans to focus on processing photos from my recent Iceland trip.  A good problem to have! 

At dusk, the Great Sand Dunes in southern Colorado take on some beautiful pastel hues. Here, I intentionally exaggerated those soft pinks and blues for a more abstract rendition of these pretty and sensual curves.

Reynisdrangar seastacks seen from a secluded beach near Vik, Iceland

Iceland’s black sand beaches are incredibly beautiful, with the contrast of the white waves against the black sand, pebbles, and rocks creating a lot of different opportunities for photography.  We visited this particular area on three separate occasions and were fortunate to have all sorts of interesting conditions.

I have not shared a photo on G+ for a few months, mostly because I have been fortunate to be traveling to all kinds of interesting places.  With no longer trips planned until August, I finally have had a chance to start processing some photos from my recent travels, starting with my trip to Iceland in June. 
 
Of all the places I wanted to visit in Iceland, the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon and beach was on the top of my list and it was far more impressive than I expected. The icebergs break off the Vatnajökull glacier, float through the lagoon, flow out into the ocean during low tide, and then wash up onto the beach, eventually breaking up and melting away. We spent a few days watching and photographing this process under all kinds of different conditions - definitely a highlight of the trip.

The Alvord Desert, in a remote section of southeastern Oregon, is one great place to spend a weekend exploring. The expansive playa has all kinds of variety and we were fortunate to find many different patterns and textures (including some water and ice - coming soon!). Although there was little color in the sky on this particular morning, these dark and dramatic clouds were great to photograph.

I really like this image from +David Kingham . It tells the sometimes sad story of the rural communities in eastern Colorado really well – times change, people move on, and places are abandoned.

During 2009 and 2010, I spent a significant amount of time working with nonprofit organizations in many of these communities. Through meeting many incredible people and experiencing a surprisingly diverse landscape, I fell in love with this part of the state but have not spent much time exploring it for photography. Thanks, David, for some needed motivation to get out, explore, and find some images like this (and images that tell the story of vibrant and thriving communities, too).

Abandoned

This weekend I went out to the plains of Colorado with intent to find abandoned homes like this, I found 9 all together along with some other interesting objects. This is still my favorite which I've shot many times before. I did considerable burning and dodging to bring the focus on the house.___I really like this image from +David Kingham .

Painted Hills, Eastern Oregon

During my trip to the Alvord Desert a few weeks ago, we stopped at the Painted Hills for sunrise along the way. Although colorful clouds never appeared that morning, we were treated to some wonderfully textured clouds that created perfect conditions for black and white wide-angle images and details shots of the colorful badlands. Just like most every other place I have visited recently, I am really looking forward to returning and getting to spend a little more time at this beautiful location.

Ice Fractures, Rocky Mountain National Park

The high alpine lakes in Rocky Mountain National Park develop fascinating ice patterns in winter. Here, ice bubbles and fractures created some interesting patterns on Mills Lake (taken in 2011, so this is not representative of conditions for this year!).
