Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 3, 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpn*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of domain errors.  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204

Gailen Mapes35,497Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera G-K - 3 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles  #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle  #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle  Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by 2013-07-17 11:42:422981319

Jim Warthman15,004Today I passed 15,000 followers! Thank you all very much for your kind appreciation and interest in my work! I am honored that 15,000 people enjoy my photography and have chosen to add me to their circles. I especially appreciate those of you who take the time to read my posts and comment on my work. I am truly humbled by this, and hope I can continue to share content that you’ll find interesting and worthy of being included in your circles.And special thanks to +Margaret Tompkins! I connected with Margaret soon after joining G+ and she has been mentoring me ever since. I credit my own G+ presence largely to Margaret’s wonderful influence!To commemorate this milestone, I’m sharing this Thank You Circle. Unfortunately, I can’t include all 15,000 of you in a circle - but I’ve selected those who’ve helped me on my G+ journey. This circle has some wonderful people who are highly engaging, interactive, thoughtful, and share outstanding content in their own streams.Last but not least, I’d love for you to introduce yourself in the comments below.Thank you all very much and, as always, Share and Enjoy! #Circleshare  #SharedCircles2013-06-18 14:34:0841343627

David Marx4,263Shared Circle:  The Photographers Whose Posts Consistently Inspire Me Here On Google+I am writing an article tonight on how to find the right connections for photographers new to the Google+ platform.  My article is geared towards those just starting out here.  One of the things that I suggest in the article is that you start out your Google+ experience by immediately killing off the silly "what's hot and recommended" feed.  In place of that nonsense, I recommend that photographer's new to this platform start out their experience here by subscribing to this circle.This circle is a completely biased list.  This is my own personal list of photographers whose style, and whose words, resonate with my tastes everyday.  These is just a small sampling of the Google+ photographers whose posts I religiously follow and whose art, insight, and consistency inspire me.  This is a small sampling of the artists that I see sharing great art here and individuals who I believe exemplify good Google+ etiquette.   Again, this is by no means a definitive list of all the talented artists currently sharing their work on this platform.  This is not meant to be a list of the artists who have the most Google+ followers nor those who have the most industry influence.2013-04-11 05:20:1342116

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:145001353699

Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+. Bloggers and people doing mostly reshares weren't included. Some big name photographers that don't share a lot of their own work were included - sorry for the double standard. Here is the 6th and last part  of my list of the top 500 most followed photographers - Here are links to the previous parts of the list.Group 1: http://tinyurl.com/cf58vws - 1 to 100Group 2: http://tinyurl.com/bodaspk - 101 to 193Group 3: http://tinyurl.com/bsb87u4 - 194 to 250 and circleGroup 4: http://tinyurl.com/d4ulv6q  - 250 to 340Group 5: http://tinyurl.com/cjpmgy4 - 341 to 420 Group 6: 421 to 500 and circle of 500 (this post)If you are on this list, I urge you to comment, plus and share the post. I have sifted through lots of pages and circles as well as http://circlecount.com/  to try to get an accurate list.

Fields of Green
Palouse Region, Washington

I headed out with +Grant Meyer  last night despite feeling poorly from some bad food on my return trip up from Peru (I again blame LAX). Socked in for most of the day we decided to give it a shot anyways and for a few pockets in the afternoon were rewarded with some good light on the hills.
While most people stuck to the roadside pullouts Grant and I headed down the hill to get a closer perspective and it payed off. Looking forward to hitting up some other locations now that most areas are popping with green and things are warming up a bit!

Brace yourselves, spring is coming

I usually am the cold weather junkie but for once I'm really eager for spring to arrive and the lushness of the landscape to return once again.  Here's one from the archives from the Palouse, I love the land boundary in this one breaking up the rolling hills.

I've go a new website up and running thanks to the folks over at +Squarespace where I'll be not only housing my portfolio but I have a blog that will be seeing frequent contribution as well as workshop announcements and fine art print sales.

The Mountain

The mighty Kirkjufell, or 'church mountain' in western Iceland is an iconic feature on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. This was our first major stop on our visit in September and mother nature went from teasing us with potential for nice light to moody clouds as rain and high winds began to beat us down that evening.

Regardless of the weather I was loving the dark mood here coupled with the good water flow from the cascades above the waterfall, Kirkjufellsfoss. A 2 second exposure time on the tripod here gave me some silky smooth water to go along with all the darkness that was rolling in.

I can't wait to get back to Iceland this summer, I love everything about this country! Are you coming with me ?

The Nun of Preah Khan
Cambodia

I never thought I'd find myself typing these words. "I enjoy taking photos of people."  Yeah, hard to believe isn't it?  That being said, I'm not running people down in my local town to grab a snapshot, but while traveling abroad the human element is one of the most compelling parts of my journey. 

This Buddhist nun was sitting inside Preah Khan temple, offering blessings to those who passed.  I thought her facial features and expressions just teemed with so much character that I had to get her photo.  After taking a few shots I said thank you and was about to leave when she grabbed my hand and proceeded to bless me.  As she was performing the blessing her eyes became wide and intense, it was definitely one of my favorite moments from the trip.

I can't wait to go back to Cambodia, I think it has now unlocked my desire to travel in Asia and see what the region has to offer.  I have a feeling it may become one of my favorite places.

I honestly don't remember the last time I opened up Google+... probably shortly before I packed up all of my belongings and began our journey back to the east coast from our short stint in the Palouse region of Washington.  I wish I still had the time commitment for social media, interaction, just catching up with my photography friends like I use to!

 Although life has dealt me changes over the past few months with work and making wedding plans,  I am still chasing my photography dreams through teaching. I was lucky this year to venture over the Atlantic to visit Iceland as an assistant photo instructor. While my time there was only with our students, I still was able to see some of the quintessential attractions from around the Golden Circle.  One of my favorite things was definitely the multitude of Icelandic horses wesaw fr... more »

I was lucky this year to venture over the Atlantic to visit Iceland as an assistant photo instructor. While my time there was only with our students, I still was able to see some of the quintessential attractions from around the Golden Circle.  One of my favorite things was definitely the multitude of Icelandic horses we saw from our drive through the western and southern portions of the island.  I was quite fond of this girl, her pattern and color was striking and the light breeze kicking up her mane couldn't have been better!

I will be heading back to Iceland this summer with +Colby Brown to help out with his adventure tour where we'll be chasing the midnight sun all across the countryside.  I'm thrilled about the idea of hours of sunrise and sunset light coupled with such a wonderful landscape and the opportunity for some personal exploration beyond the tour itself.  Will you be there this summer?

Day One*

On the road in Iceland! Back in action with +Colby Brown and a great group of workshop participants. Last night we hit up Kirkjufellsfoss which had some great flow and didn't disappoint. Heading back south today, more to follow from behind the scenes.

Envy
The Palouse region, Washington

I can't believe how fast time has gone, it feels like we just moved to the Palouse area a few months back.  Now in the coming weeks I'll be packing and purging our apartment to prepare for the journey 3,000 miles east back to Raleigh, North Carolina.

I am super stoked to be back with family and close friends while in the process of planning our wedding in 2015.  I will definitely miss having wonderful photo ops less than an hour's drive from my front door.  People come from all over to see this area and for good reason - it boasts wonderful views and varied compositions from many of the popular locations as well as fun adventures down single track backroads through what I consider classic 'Americana.'

Here's another take from an afternoon at Steptoe Butte, the classic photo spot roughly centralized in the region.  Long lenses reign supreme here, so big props to +LensRentals.com for always taking care of me with my requests :) I'll hopefully be squeezing in some posts of shots taken with the 100-400 before having to send her back in.___

Tree of Life

This split cottonwood gets a lot of press viewed way up from Steptoe Butte but I had the chance to check it out up close and personal this morning.  The area beside the tree has been left fallow this season which takes away some of the photo angles of this charismatic tree.  Needless to say, I gave it my best shot.  There's not much for foreground in a sea of wheat fields, but the lighting on the tree and the crops still made for a solid image.  This was processed using +Sean Bagshaw 's 32 bit HDR merge from 5 files.

I hope you enjoy!

Enter the Sun

Sorry for the repost, but a suggested crop made this much better so I had to do it

I'm still not use to the super early alarm for sunrise here in Washington... I always used to grumble when getting up around 4:45 back in North Carolina - now its something like 3:45 But, hey, its totally worth it. Today was a mostly clear morning so I was angling for some warm orange light creeping in this spot below Steptoe Butte. Some wildflowers linger on the closest ridge as nearly all the fields have been worked and the wheat and other crops are growing fast.

I'll be heading back out this afternoon and most mornings over the next few weeks to shoot along 195. If anyone is out and about, feel free to drop me a message.

Happy Monday!

Fields of Green
Palouse Region, Washington

I headed out with +Grant Meyer  last night despite feeling poorly from some bad food on my return trip up from Peru (I again blame LAX). Socked in for most of the day we decided to give it a shot anyways and for a few pockets in the afternoon were rewarded with some good light on the hills.
While most people stuck to the roadside pullouts Grant and I headed down the hill to get a closer perspective and it payed off. Looking forward to hitting up some other locations now that most areas are popping with green and things are warming up a bit!

TGL Peru is on the ground! We are so excited to be back where it all began, and back with Picaflor House for the third time!

Endless Fall
Uncompahgre National Forest, CO

A throwback from a few years ago, the last real fall colors I shot while visiting southwest Colorado.  This trip will always stick in my mind because I spent 10 days battling a relapse in a sinus infection coupled with Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) at my own stubbornness.  I decided to push myself from 375 ft in elevation to 10,800 ft in a matter of 10 hours. :)  Oh the things we'll do for photography!

I will be posting some BTS shots while I am in Peru starting this weekend but until I am back, I'll be mostly off the grid.  For the most up to date trip reports, feel free to find me on Instagram (peytonhale).

Palouse Spring

Here's the real image from my LCD grab last night.  Spring is in full effect here on the Palouse with lots of balsamroot on Steptoe Butte and the lupine is starting to bloom.  I hope to head over to Kamiak Butte to see how things are going in the morning (weather dependent) and I'll hopefully be out shooting most days until I head to Peru. 

For anyone heading to the Palouse the end of May or in June, be sure to  drop me a message!

Merced Reflected

Clear skies in the park have us looking for alternate photo opportunities.  Exploring the Merced near Valley View the reflected light on the river made for a nice abstract shot in the evening light.  This was another quick edit in Lightroom 5 and Color Efex Pro.

Our video project finished up this morning so the next few days we'll be visiting different locations within Yosemite to grab stills for further content.  Yosemite has been quite the stunning experience, I look forward to returning to her again.

Our video project in Yosemite National Park with Nomadik Motion is winding down as we head to Glacier Point tonight for some alpine scenery and grand vistas to add into the footage.

Coming up on May 3rd +Colby Brown  is hosting a public photo walk (and I'll be giving him a hand) in the valley starting at 3:30 on May 3rd at Lower Yosemite Falls. We will be doing a small loop around the valley covering Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Sentinel Bridge and Swinging Bridge before walking along the Merced River back to the Lower Falls.
If you are in the Bay area or around Yosemite be sure to come out!
Here's a quick edit in Lightroom 5 + Silver Efex 2 of the classic Tunnel View with some nice elements hanging round late afternoon following the spring snow storm. Looking forward to also finalizing this one in Photoshop.

Celebrating #Yosemite150  - The designation of the Yosemite Land Grant

I'm currently in +Yosemite National Park  with +Colby Brown  and Nomadik Motion (www.nomadikmotion.com) working on a short video piece covering the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Land Grant.  This designation by President Lincoln in 1864  was the first of its kind and permitted protection of Mariposa Grove and Yosemite Valley for the enjoyment of the people.

We were fortunate to have a late spring snow storm roll through the mountains which made for some fun shooting conditions yesterday morning.  Here's a quick edit in Lighroom from my laptop of Yosemite Falls kissed with some snow and a little fog in the mix (can't wait to edit this on the calibrated monitor!).

I got the chance to check out the new HTC One M8 while in Alberta with +Colby Brown  and I must say this is a sleek looking smartphone with some nice upgrades from the original. I had the original +HTC   One and it was a game changer for me coming over to Android from iOS.

So if you're interested in whats new with HTC, take a moment to check out Colby's in depth review.

Full In-Depth Review of the just announced HTC One M8

Just a few moments ago, +HTC announced the successor to the popular HTC One Android phone, officially known as the HTC One M8. For the past two months I have been using a near final version of their latest flagship phone, taking it with me to Iceland, the Canadian Rockies and Hawaii to accompany me on a few of my adventures. The result is an in-depth look at the new phone, its strengths, weaknesses and my overall thoughts as a photographer. Enjoy!

Northern Lights

Sorry for the new upload, had to fix the crappy quality upload.  Thanks for the tip.

On a recent winter trip to Iceland, I was fortunate enough to see a few good displays of the aurora, which was the main reason for the trip. Chasing the aurora can be quite challenging, since it is based not only on the aurora forecast, but also cloud forecast, as well as the direction of the display. On this particular evening my main composition was setup facing to the right of this shot, just waiting for the aurora to show up, but it turned out to be the best in another direction. I quickly tried to find a composition to take advantage of the display while it lasted.___Yeah, nailed it. #somuchforshootingaurora

Vermilion Morning
Banff, Alberta

Best viewed on black

I've been hung up on this image for a while, its been my 'white whale' so to speak... Such a spectacular sunrise has become a tough image to process!  I think for now this is as far as my workflow will let me go, so I'm polishing up my skills with processing tutorials and trying to break past this plateau or 'processing slump' that I've been hitting with images from Canada.

I hope you enjoy this rendition, I'm sure it will evolve into something better once I can push my abilities!

In preparation for my upcoming trip to Norway, here is another photo from my March 2012 trip. This is Reinefjord from the village of Reine, considered among the most beautiful in all of Norway.

Maligne's Icefall
Maligne Canyon, Alberta

So what do you do when visiting Alberta in the winter and a high pressure system moves in and give you blue bird skies?  Head into the icy canyons of course!  Myself and +Colby Brown  headed into Maligne Canyon with the awesome +Jeff Bartlett to explore the large icefalls that had formed this winter.  It was like a miniature Zion Narrows with some awesome ice thrown in.  This is a beautiful location year round but I highly recommend spending an early morning here if you find yourself visiting Jasper National Park in the winter.

Freeze Frame
Abraham Lake, Alberta

Just now sorting and selecting work to process from 10 days in the Canadian Rockies.  Beyond the grandeur of massive peaks and wild land that surrounded us, the fine details in the ice were something I really wanted to capture.  These bubbles are formed in numerous lakes in the Canadian Rockies, but most famous from Abraham as access is simple and the Chinook winds often keep the lake clear of any snow accumulation.

Finishing up at Abraham Lake today and heading back south to Banff. Wandering frozen lakes has been an awesome part of this trip, so many interesting fine details from bubbles and cracks to interweaving ice formations.

Here's a capture of me working on a composition along the lake while waiting for some afternoon light.

Here's to hoping our last sunset and sunrise are good to us!

These -30 mornings have been something else! Looks like clouds will return tomorrow for our time up at Abraham Lake.

Keep Calm and Climb On
Alberta, Canada

I'm up in Alberta hanging out with +Colby Brown and checking out the Canadian Rockies.  The weather wasn't playing very nice with some of the locations we were hoping to check out of the next few days, so we've headed north to Jasper National Park.  Along the way up the Icefields Parkway we stopped by a location known as the 'Weeping Walls' and were given the chance to snag a few photos of a pair of ice climbers moving up this massive frozen structure.  From all the images from publications like Outside Magazine or even the Patagonia catalog and such captivating adventure sports photos, I've always wanted a chance to shoot something like this! I hate to post work from the road, but I just was eager to share this with others :)

Cheers!

I'm packing up to head north to Banff for 10 days which will include stops at Abraham Lake and maybe a chance to chase the aurora borealis.  Abraham Lake has been on my radar for quite some time and is a real gem for the Canadian Rockies in the winter time. 

While I'm still getting all my gear in order, I wanted to share this killer image from my buddy +David Thompson  who recently returned from the area.  David walked away with many images from here, can't wait to see the rest of them processed!

Mad props to DT for lots of information to assist with the planning of my trip and getting me super psyched to shoot these locations.

One of the things that I enjoy about photography, is the experiences that I have. The images bring back memories. As is the same with this one. One of the memories that stuck in my head is how cold it was. It was cold! Real cold! I'm sure a lot of you have experienced -15 degree weather, but me.....living here in the SW, we don't get weather even remotely close that. It's a different feeling when it's that cold and the wind hits your skin.  Ouch!

Great morning with a short snowshoe out on the Palouse. 8-10" of powder the past few days has everything looking amazing!

Winter Blues
The Palouse, WA

Sunrise was a flop this morning, and man, was it cold up on Steptoe Butte!  Negative windchills and likely an ambient temp just above zero made it tough to watch a small molten glow fizzle to nothing in seconds :(

Anyways, here's one more from the Kamiak Butte area, I like the mixed light here and the rolling contours.  More snow is in the long range forecast, so not sure what things will look like at that point with some notable depth on the hills.

As always, feel free to share.

Sweet image from Patagonia by +Clint Burkinshaw ... man this place is just so awesome, I hope to visit in the coming years :)

Storm Over Cuernos del Paine, Patagonia, Chile

Dark storm clouds rage in the background above the majestic shaped mountains, while the extremely high gusts of wind ravage the landscape in the foreground creating quite a scene..

The day went from sunshine to stormy at the blink of an eye. It was impossible to predict what the weather was going to be like from one minute to the other. I already had some lovely red sunrise shots, and some striking blue sky panoramas of the Cuernos, but I thought I'd take the opportunity of the crazy weather to get a nice dramatic scene which probably more truly reflects this area of the world more than others.

This photograph is a combination of two different shots. The first was 1/40 of a second @ f/8 in order to get a nice crisp landscape. The other was a long exposure with an ND filter at 1/3 of a second @ f/22 in order to slow down the water.___Sweet image from Patagonia by +Clint Burkinshaw ... man this place is just so awesome, I hope to visit in the coming years :)

Enchanted
The Palouse, WA

Finally having snowfall on the Palouse has been super motivating to get out, explore and photograph the area.  The landscape is a quintessential winter wonderland and it sounds like a little more snow coming in the forecast. 

I headed up to Kamiak Butte this morning for a different perspective.  While I didn't hit all the vantage points I wanted, I still had a wonderful and quiet morning. The Palouse is dominated by long lens opportunities and I really wish I had one of the Canon L's in the 300mm range. 

As always, feel free to share, enjoy the touch of winter.  Ok enough, its time to make some coffee and get ready to watch the Seahawks bring home a big win!

Fog and Light
The Palouse, WA

This morning I spent time with +Grant Meyer  on Steptoe Butte State Park, utilizing the fresh snow, freezing fog, and nice light for sunrise.  I was happy to finally get out and get some shots with conditions coming together for once.  With temps dropping below freezing and continuing to slip down, things should stay like this for a while and I'll be out and about capturing them!

I recently wrote an article for +Dan Carr  over at +Shutter Muse highlighting my recent departure from graduated neutral density filters. I cover a bit of my story as how I was inspired to get into landscape photography, how grad ND's played a big role in some of my notable images and where I'm at now with advanced editing techniques.

Big thanks to +Sean Bagshaw  for allowing me to showcase his YouTube editing snippet on the creation of 32 bit files. 

Today on my website +Shutter Muse we have a great post by my friend and brilliant landscape photographer +Peyton Hale .
http://shuttermuse.com/why-sold-my-graduated-neutral-density-filter/

A couple of months ago I noticed Peyton was selling his graduated ND kit and I though it seemed like an odd move for a landscape photographer so I had to find out more!  I asked him to put this post together to explain why he was selling them, and tell you guys what he's using now instead.___I recently wrote an article for +Dan Carr  over at +Shutter Muse highlighting my recent departure from graduated neutral density filters.

The Chamber
Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Taken in the heart of Lower Antelope while visiting this past spring, a warm glow near the  feature 'Lady in the Wind' seeps in to blend with the cool tones of the walls tucked in the shadows.  This was 5 exposures blended together using +Sean Bagshaw 's tutorial on creating 32 bit HDR files.  Check out more of Sean's tutorial tidbits on his YouTube page and complete editing tutorials on his website, www.outdoorexposurephoto.com
