Scott Jarvie447,179*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2.

Ice Mist Rising

While we were visiting Niagra Falls this past spring, the weather was such that lows were in the mid 20's F so all the mist rising from the falls would free on the rocks and branches. I was able to capture a bit of this in the foreground of this shot. I chose a vertical crop rather than a horizontal one because it felt like it fit better with the foreground element. Happy Tuesday!

Sometimes you just need a reminder

It's been a crazy couple of days at work and as I was eating dinner tonight around 8:45pm the song "Shoulders" by for KING & COUNTRY came to mind. It was a great reminder and for me goes well with this image. You can find the full lyrics here: https://play.google.com/music/preview/Tftaafqewkdyusd4ybdie5v4hae?lyrics=1&utm_source=google&utm_medium=search&utm_campaign=lyrics&pcampaignid=kp-songlyrics

The chorus goes...

My help comes from You
You're right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness,
my brokenness all on Your shoulders
Your shoulders
My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don't have to see to believe that
You're lifting me up on Your shoulders
Your shoulders

The beauty of rain

This is Dunloup Creek Falls near Beckley, WV. According to my WV experts, this creek always has a good flow even at the end of summer (when visited this year). They were right and the waterfall was beautiful. You can read about this waterfall from one of my WV experts here: http://discoverwv.blogspot.com/2016/08/dunloup-creek-falls.html

Have a great week ahead as we prepare for fall!!

Golden Stillness

This past Sunday afternoon my wife and I went for a bike ride and then headed for Bears Den to watch the sunset. With the wispy clouds and blue sky it looked to be very promising and it turned out to be:) This is the first time my wife has been on a trail since breaking her ankle over a year ago. God's healing is a true blessing!

This evening was unusual because there was no wind. We probably stayed for 45 mins or more just enjoying the stillness and beauty of this place. One thing I always find interesting is that many people come to watch the sun go behind the horizon and then they leave. In the process they miss the amazing colors of the clouds as evening falls:)

Have a great Wednesday!

The Colors of Lilypads

Ever since I first stayed in the Bellagio hotel (Las Vegas) I've wanted to photograph the blown glass lilypads in the foyer. That only visit was over 15yrs ago so I was happy when I had a conference to attend for work in Las Vegas and was able to visit the Bellagio with my camera. I love the colors and the layers. Happy Tuesday!

Sandstone Falls

I have to say I had a hard time with my comps at Sandstone Falls, WV. This was my first visit and thankfully I had some intel on how to get much closer to the falls than is offered by the boardwalk. This is a very unusual waterfall in that the entire width of the river drops 10-25 ft and the water drops across the entire width of the river. Of course the flow was not as high as it can be and so for this visit there were many smaller waterfalls. I am very glad I made the visit and hopefully next time I'll find comps I like better. Happy Thursday!

Swirls at Dunloup Creek Falls

It's always a fun trying to add or remove filters while shooting in the middle of a creek... even if the tripod is positioned on top of rocks. I had to use my 10stop ND filter in order to get a shutter speed long enough to capture the swirls. I do love shooting waterfalls with swirls which reminds me that I need to get back up to the West Virginia Potomac Highlands in a few weeks as fall colors will be at their peak and one of the waterfalls up there often has great swirls:)

For those in the US, have a great Labor Day and for everyone else, have a great week!

Evening in the Hollow at Dunloup Creek Falls

While on my WV detour home from dropping off my son at college I stopped at Dunloup Creek Falls. Thanks to two of my WV friends I found the road side pull off without any trouble and got to shooting. I tried a bunch of different comps finally taking off my shoes so I could wade into the stream. For this shot I really liked the dark contrasts and that feel of late dusk/evening. Have a wonderful Thursday!

Grand Sunrise @ Grandview Overlook

Thanks to the suggestion of my good friend +Randall Sanger I decided to visit Grandview Overlook near Beckley, WV Sunday morning and was witness to one of the most amazing sunrises I've seen in a very long time.

Peek-a-boo sunrise

Yikes, has it really been a week since I last posted anything? That is quite depressing:) I really haven't been out much with my camera this summer and it still seems like it has flown by. I'm hopeful with school starting up that life will have a little more order and I'll be able to shoot more.

I hope you enjoy this Loudoun County, horse country sunrise. I love fields with the round hay bales and that's what drew my eye to this location. Happy Thursday!

This morning I woke up early and left the house to capture the sunrise over a nearby field full of round hay bales. After the sun came up it backlit these thistles so out came the macro lens and I spent some time shooting wild flowers in the golden light.

For processing I used #Lightroom and #On1 Photo 10. I wasn't planning on adding any texture but as I played with the image in post I really liked the way this looked/felt so here it is:)

Appalachian Sunset

OK, maybe not the most original title;) I finally grabbed my camera this past Sat and went out to shoot the sunset. It turned out a little better than I expected and it was great to be out shooting again. Of course, here it is Wed. evening and I'm just getting around to posting it so the business hasn't slowed down. I was able to get through some of you'alls photos tonight and that was a lot of fun!

Happy Wednesday!!

Middle America

When we visited St. Louis this year they had the whole park around the arch kind of torn up as they are extending the park over I-40 rather than asking people to cross the interstate as it runs through downtown St. Louis:) This ended up being my best shot of the arch and it was taken from the courthouse.

I don't usually promote items on my page but I'm very excited about this project and the flexibility of the Everyday Backpack. If you're not familiar with Peak Design or their products, I highly encourage you to check them out!

P.S. I expect most of you have already seen this kickstarter project, but just in case:)

Rising Sun

Here is a wider view of Horseshoe Falls in Niagra Falls, Canada. You can just make out the other end of the horseshoe through the mist at the left edge of the photo. One of my favorite parts of this image is the way the sun is framed by the mist.

Life for me right now is a little crazy. I probably won't be active here again for a few days:(

Rushing By

I can really relate to time rushing by! The summer is mostly gone, in a month I'll be taking our third child to college, and this week has gone by with very little time for social media.

This is a river level view of Great Falls on the Potomac River. Another shot from my trip with my friend +William McIntosh. I've been shooting waterfalls with a shorter shutter speed to get more texture in the water. In this case I really like the sense of motion and speed it gives to the water.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Dueling Globes

Given all the heat we are having here in VA I thought I'd post something that reminds me of the cold. While the image might not look that cold it was less that 15 F when I took this shot:) The foreground globe is a frozen soap bubble and the background globe is of course the sun. In this case the sun won as the frozen soap bubble eventually collapse (or maybe that was the cold winning, I'm not sure:) Anyway, have a wonderful cool day!

Water & Sky

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! I was looking through my shots of Great Falls from a few weekends ago and really liked the sky in this shot. This is another HDR image and I really like the way the water turns out during the HDR merge. I feel like there is more texture in the water. Happy Saturday!

Ice Mist Rising

While we were visiting Niagra Falls this past spring, the weather was such that lows were in the mid 20's F so all the mist rising from the falls would free on the rocks and branches. I was able to capture a bit of this in the foreground of this shot. I chose a vertical crop rather than a horizontal one because it felt like it fit better with the foreground element. Happy Tuesday!

Fire in the staircase

On my way back to the hotel, after walking around downtown St. Louis the other weekend, I saw this building with blues and golds. Unfortunately, I didn't have my tripod though I tried a couple shots anyway. One had zigzag blurs and that got me thinking about +Alex Lapidus and intentional blurring when taking photos. So I steadied my camera against a nearby pillar and moved the camera vertically while shooting. I really like the warm and cool ones. Thanks Alex for the idea!!!

I'm still working through the shots I took at Great Falls Park the other weekend. I really like this portrait view with the rocks in the foreground.

Amusement with a View

While walking around downtown St. Louis one evening trying to find a decent view of the sky as it looked like there might be a decent sunset, I found this roof top "amusement park". This seemed like a good foreground element to my sunset shot especially given I was in the middle of the city. I can't imagine what the sunset looked like from up there:)

Exploring St. Louis

Just wanted to apologize for being so absent the last couple of weeks. We've been traveling (visiting parents and in-laws) and it turns out the internet access has been very limited. I've used more data from our data plan than ever before:)

I do have a couple shots I like from our one night in St. Louis which I'll eventually get uploaded. Just don't know when yet:)

Happy Monday!

Ok, that title may be stretching it a bit:) but I really like how you can see the smoke trails from previous firework and they form kind of an echo for the bursts captured in the foreground. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Appalachian Evening

A few weekends ago I headed up to Bears Den overlook on the Appalachian Trail to take in the sunset and just get out with my camera. It's been very busy at home and I needed a break out in nature. I got to my favorite part of Bears Den for shooting (during the summer) and after trying a few comps set up here. Most of the time I was shooting HDR sequences and then I pulled out my 10stop ND filter as the clouds started to get some color. In the middle left of the image are the vestiges of mountain laurel blossoms (note to self to be up here next year when they are in bloom). Please view this on a device/monitor at full brightness (thinking I might want to print this on metal) to get the maximum effect. Happy Wednesday!

Fire rain

Last year when shooting fireworks I shot at 17mm or 24mm (I don't remember which) and had to crop in for every shot. So this year I decided to shoot at 40mm so I wouldn't have to crop as much. Well... I got the camera well centered for the fireworks but not angled high enough to capture the highest of the bursts:) I wanted the images to still be grounded with the tree and some foreground elements. I'll try and add a few more to my Fireworks collection over the next couple of days:)

The way it should be

Last night I was honored to watch the fireworks display in Roanoke, IN. What a joy to be surrounded by patriots (who stood and took off their hats when the national anthem was played), families playing frisbee and kids throwing a football. There was none of the cynicism so often found in the DC area. It was a celebration of a great country by people who love their country. The way it should be!

Happy 4th of July!

America... It's Time to Pray Again

In 1787 at the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin made the following speech to the delegates that were in strong dispute over different parts of our American Constitution. Here is part of his speech…

In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the Contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. ”Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kindpro... more »

America... It's Time to Pray Again

In 1787 at the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin made the following speech to the delegates that were in strong dispute over different parts of our American Constitution. Here is part of his speech…

In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the Contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. ”Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that "except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments be Human Wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.

I was introduced to this speech during a message I heard at The Chapel (http://thechapel.net/) and after some research felt this is so appropriate for this 4th of July.

More details can be found at: http://www.wallbuilders.com/libissuesarticles.asp?id=98

P.S. The photo is from July 4th, 2015 taken in #Roanoke #Indiana.

Dawning at Great Falls

Friday morning Bill (+William McIntosh) and I headed out at 4am to make the hour drive to Great Falls (Virginia side) on the Potomac river. It was a bit of a gamble as I wasn't sure if the gate to the park would be open or not. Well... when we got there, sure enough the gate was closed so we turned around and started searching our phones for other places we might be able to park and then hike in. After a while we found a little parking lot about a mile from the falls and drove there, parked and started our hike. We arrived at the falls a little later than I would have liked sunrise-wise as the purples/pinks were gone though as you can see there was still plenty of color:)

We spent a good while shooting, including scrambling down to the river level (something I hadn't done before and wanted to) for some different angles.

Quiet Roar

I was blessed earlier this spring with a gorgeous sunrise while our family was visiting Niagra Falls. We were staying on the US side so I got up early one morning and walked over to Horseshoe Falls (on the Canadian side) before sunrise. It was close to 25 degrees Fahrenheit so the mist was freezing on twigs and branches close to the Falls. As the sun got closer to rising the clouds turned this wonderful tender pink. I love this image because in this view you can feel stillness and quiet and yet you know if you were standing there the air would be filled with a grand roar. Have a wonderful and blessed Thursday!

P.S. I submitted this image for the GOLDEN HOUR category of +Chrysta Rae's scavenger hunt. Check out her stream for all the details. It's a lot of fun and you'll find some amazing images.

Enclosed in purple warmth

Last year I spent a good bit of one Saturday rescuing our clematis vine and reattaching it to the post it was climbing. It had gotten intertwined with a bunch of weeds so extricating the clematis from the weed took some work. However, we were rewarded with beautiful blossoms this spring and this is one of the blooms:)

As an indication of my week, I meant to post this on Monday and am just getting to it today:) Wishing every one a happy Wednesday!

Steamboat Sunrise

So when day while in New Orleans I got up early to see if there would be a decent sunrise and this the result:) I tried a couple comps along the wharf with this being my favorite.

It's a beautiful day here in Virginia, and the county we live in is sponsoring an art studio tour so we are headed out to visit some different artists and their studios. Should be a lot of fun.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Saturday!

The Falls of Niagra

It's been a while since I shared a "proper" landscape shot so here is one Niagra falls taken near sunset. This image shows both American Falls and Horseshoe Falls. The texture in the water comes from merging 5 images from an HDR set. Have a wonderful weekend!

Sunday Morning Explorations

The Sunday my wife and I were in New Orleans we walked down to the French Market for breakfast at Meals from the Heart (which serves wonderful gluten-free pancakes). After spending some time exploring the open air market we headed back toward the hotel walking through Jackson Square.

Evening settles on New Orleans

Last night my wife and I went on a dinner cruise aboard the Creole Queen. It was a beautiful evening and not too hot (which was nice) and we were blessed with a beautiful sunset as we returned toward the city (that photo for another day). As blue hour approached the city skyline came into view and the clouds and lights created this magical view. Have a great day!

Gig's Over

Quintessential Saturday evening in New Orleans. One gig is done and another is starting. Saw this group hanging out after their gig as my wife and I were walking back to our hotel. May your Sunday be full of music:)

Beauty of Rain

Another tulip from Munich city center. It's cloudy and likely rainy here today so this seemed an appropriate image for #FloralFriday:)

Have a great weekend!

Any interest in a Northern Virginia or metro DC area photo walk? Also if one is already being planned please let me know. #G+5MetroDC #G+5NVA #G+5Global

GOOGLE+ 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (yes, it's that time already!)
Please Read #G+5Global
Global Gatherings including Photowalks are encouraged to mark the 5 year anniversary of the communities we have built around Google+
Organise a gathering in your area during the weekend of June 25th-26th.
Share this post with and Invite G+ friends past and present anyway you can. Let's thank Google+ for providing a place where we can share our passions and celebrate the relationships we've fostered here, the people we've met here and the communities we belong to here.

Use the Hashtag #G+5Global at the main hashtag and then create a local hashtag for your local event. Example #G+5BayArea. Use both the global and the local hashtags in your posts about your event so people can easily find an event near them and connect.

I will be creating a sunset Photowalk at Albany Bulb followed by curry in Albany for the San Francisco Bay Area. More details on that to follow.
