“Fall Flavors” — This is, hands down, my favorite season. I mean, what’s not to love? Azure blue skies, gorgeous foliage, refreshing temperatures. Fall has it all! And Utah is Oh so beautiful! Thank you so much for sticking with me, since my posting has been slim to none of late. I have been truly blessed with an overwhelming number of wonderful opportunities. Back from speaking @fireflyinstitute photography camp in Sonoma, CA @westerbekeranch on nightscape photography, post processing, and prepping your files for printing. Even led campers in a night of educational and hilarious light painting at the ranch. Wonderful group and amazing speakers! Then onto @vidsummit where I connected with some fabulous speakers, and look forward to working with a couple of them. I’m grateful for the many opportunities to share my passion for photography, and look forward to sharing more of what I’m learning with you! #nikon100 #nikonfallutah #autumncolors🍁 #treesofinstagram #treescapes #werutah #utahphotographer #instafall #fallfoliage #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #utahisbeautiful #utahgram #visitutah #utahisrad #splendid_woodlands #pictureline #autumnvibes #autumn #instaautumn #tree_captures #ig_color #utahdotcom #myrrs #nikonphotography

“Fall Dreams” — I’ve been absent for a stretch preparing for my first gallery exhibit in Salt Lake City @redmangallery. The opening was wonderful and successful, thanks to everyone who attended! I met some fabulous folks, welcomed close friends, and sold more than 20% of the show on opening night, including sales of nightscape images to benefit my new non profit, “Save a Star Foundation.” And this seasonal image sold as well. My next post will fill you in on what “Save a Star” all about, and how you can get involved. Exciting stuff on the horizon! Photo Tip: Ever taken photos that were totally unimpressive out-of-camera? Well, this was one of those shots. The capture was subpar and just didn’t seem worth a second look. But thank goodness I didn’t delete it, because after returning to the shot and applying techniques developed over the last couple of years, I was able to bring it to life. Allow your post processing skills to catch up with your photography. Be patient, because in the case of RAW images, post processing can play just as important a role as composing that image in the field. . . #ig_shotz #spendid_earth #got_greatshots #special_shots #mthrworld #naturelover_gr #ig_bliss #bestnatureshot #bestnatureshots #amazing_shots #stellar_shots #ig_myshots #stayandwander #adventureculture #discoverearth #visualsofearth #wildernessculture #wanderlust #roamtocreate #roamtheplanet #igmasters #nikonphotography #nikon100 #autumnleaves #utahrocks #utahgram #werutah #exploreutah

“The Abyss” — Just found out yesterday that this image plus a Bryce snowscape I shot a few years ago, won honorable mentions in the 9th Annual National Park Photo Contest. This is a single exposure from a crazy night in an amazing place. Crazy because the steam from this thermal pool was at times making it hard to breath, or see anything, when the wind would shift in my direction. It was also the night that I had to pass the huge silhouetted Elk that stood silently near the footbridge—equal parts beautiful and unnerving. Photo Tip: @photopills made this shot possible. I knew what day and what hour to set up my shot, and with a little advance scouting trip, I was able to plan the rest from the comfort of my studio. No steam there thank goodness😉.

“Monumental” — To recognize World Photography Day, I share with you this image captured in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park some years ago. The Navajo Nation is a nation within a nation — the United States of America. The fascinating culture, amazing arts, and riveting story of a proud people who faced great burdens and challenges, is a story that each American should know. Photography is a way to share the beauty of the land they love. Be sure to book Navajo guides to take you deeper into these sacred lands. It’s a rich experience. Photo Tip: Be the first to rise after a storm and welcome the splendid beauty that may await you. This shot was taken after a rough night of camping. Torrential rain, gusting winds and hail, made for a less than cozy experience, but it was memorable. Rising before the dawn to witness this sunrise was incredible. Make every moment count! Looking forward to my Capture the Southwest workshop that will visit this epic location next week!

“Sizzle” — Monsoon season is upon us, and it delivered this spectacular scene, during the time I spent scouting for an upcoming workshop in New Mexico. I was so excited to capture the lightening bolt in this frame that a shouted for joy. My guide @chacorunner patiently put up with my childish antics. Sometimes I can’t help myself, hahaha. Sites like this are more common during monsoon, so if you want to visit some of the most iconic locations in the United States, August 25-29, for my “Capture the Southwest” workshop, then head on over to my website for more information and consider signing up for the one spot that remains. (LINK IN BIO). It was especially sweet to capture such a beautiful scene with my Dad’s lens. Miss ya Dad—you would have loved it there Photo Tip: I got this shot with my #nikon #z6 with the F2Z adapter and a Nikkor 20mm f/3.5 gem of lens inherited from my Dad, going way back to the film days. Pure retro all the way—fully manual. This lens is golden and delivers such a beautiful image. Not all lenses are equal in terms of their “look.” Glass comes in flavors, so carefully pick yours. . . . #awesome_earthpix #earth_shotz #depthsofearth #earthofficial #jaw_dropping_shots #hubs_united #findyourpark #usinterior #usparksandmonuments #westbysouthwest #nature_perfection #planet_earth_shots #best_earthscapes #got_greatshots #earthoutdoors #optoutsdide #longexpsore_shots #nikon100 #nikonphotography #pictureline #earthfocus #findyourpark #earthpix #ig_shots_le #ig_shotz_sunset #sunsetlover

C A P T U R E C O L O R A D O Colorado has had a special place in my heart since I was a teenager and tagged along on my Dad’s Wilderness Workshops in Photography. An accomplished fine art photographer, my Dad led treks into the rare air of Mount Evans, and to the historic mining districts of Red Mountain Pass. Colorado inspires a bit of the Wild West in all of us, and I now regularly travel to this part of the Rockies, exploring great locations both to shoot and enjoy. From the coffee roasters to the bakeries, from the player pianos to the narrow gauge rail, this area makes for a full-on western adventure. Experience the breathtaking beauty of western Colorado this Autumn during my all inclusive 3-day and 3-night landscape and nightscape photography workshop. Includes three nights of lodging at the rustic @timberridgelodgeouray in Ouray. Our small group, limited to five participants, will enjoy road-trip style travel on backcountry roads into jaw-dropping beauty. Hard to describe, unless you’ve been there!

“Meditation” — The desert is a great place to think, and give thanks. Photo Tip: Experimenting with different presentations led me to the final sepia toned version of this image. I now look at the original color file and wince. This image, displayed this way, is just “right.” Be patient to find the best expression for your art. Some images only shine when you give them a treatment outside the box. Don’t get stuck in a stylistic rut, but rather practice the art of “reimagining” your photographs in your digital darkroom.

“The Bells“ — The story of this image: I remember this trip well. I had not visited Maroon Bells in years, not since I was a teen, on a photography workshop led by my late father. This time, I camped close by, and felt a bit apprehensive as I drove to the lake the following morning. Questions swirled about in my mind: Would it look the same? Had it been built up? Would I get emotional? This park held a very special place to me, who as a 13 year old from the east coast, had never experienced the west, and who felt perpetual awe surrounded by this breathtaking beauty. So when I parked the truck in a nearby empty lot, and clipped on Tuffy’s leash, I took a deep breath, before making my way to the lake where I had stood with my Dad years earlier. This was a stormy day, with rolling clouds, and piercing sun beams cycling over and over as I walked along the shore. The tumultuous sky echoed my emotions: Happy, sad, loss, joy, and through it all, the faith that I’ll see my Dad again one day. I hope this image speaks well of those precious moments, on what was a very special day. . . . #maroonbells #colorado_creative #coloradophotography #coloradotography #nikon100 #rockymountains #findyourpark #ig_shotz #planet_earth_shots #earthfocus #earthoffical #best_earthscapes #stellar_shots #coloradocameraclub #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_shotz #allbeauty_addiction #depthsofearth #mthrworld #nature_perfection #myrrs #pictureline #visitcolorado #coloradoinstagram #earthpix #stayandwander #viewcolorado #coloradogram #awesome_earth #moodygrams

“Morning in the Dunes” — Morning in the dunes is such a great time to reflect and renew. Yesss Photo Tip: Scenes like this can be compositionally challenging. There is sensory overload; an overwhelming feeling of wanting to cram the whole blessed scene onto the memory. So I consciously slow myself down. And of course scenes like this need to be approached with care, since walking about may ruin them with footprints. So give yourself time to frame up the most compelling composition, and always take away great memories! This image was captured using the always awesome: @nikonusa D810, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8, @reallyrightstuff BH-40; TVC-24L. . . #desertphotography #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #usinterior #findyourpark #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #desertlandscape #westbysouthwest #california_igers #californiaroadtrip #nikonphotography #nikon100 #landscape_hunter #landscape_capture #hubs_united #awesome_earthpix #nature_brilliance #nature_lovers #adventureenthusiasts #nature_shooters #got_greatshots #nationalparkservice #amongthewild #national_park_photography #nationalparkpartnership #depthsofearth #earthofficial #splendid_nature #splendid_earth

Happy 4th of July USA 🇺🇸I don’t have any fireworks shots, but I think we can agree that the celestial lights are a fireworks display unto themselves! This image is from my April, Death Valley road trip. I didn’t plan this shot, but later liked the metaphor. I want to sincerely thank each one of you for following me and supporting my photography. I don’t take any of you for granted.

“Pocket of Gold” — Getting up early after several days of nightscape (astro) photography can sometimes result in a battle. After the alarm goes off in the darkness, my barely functioning, but eager brain begins to think (or rather dream) of the great sunrise shots to be had, while my body wants no part of this reckless folly. After days of driving, hours of intense scouting, heat, or cold, bizarre eating patterns, poor or brief sleeping arrangements, I experience the Biblical scenario: “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” So with me, sometimes this battle can take a full 30 minutes, until the mind wins, and the body begrudgingly follows orders. Of course, I should add, that as I begin to stir, my dogs get lively, so hitting snooze is not an option. This may qualify as TMI, but hey, let’s be real, shall we🤠. Photo Tip: Try to think of the things that can help make your astro/landscape travel adventures as comfortable as possible. Prepare yourself in every way, and don’t wait until the last minute before a trip or workshop to consider all of the important factors: Mind, body, gear, knowledge, and a plan. Then get out there and make it special folks!! 🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷🔶🔷UPDATE: Only one seat now remains in my AUGUST WORKSHOP to some amazing locations in the Southwest to experience Monsoon season and Astro perfect goodness!

“On the Wings of Angels” — I never cease to be amazed and inspired by what I see in nature. Beauty abounds, surpassing even my wildest imagination. Photo Tip: Even though you can change white balance in post processing (provided you shoot in RAW), it’s a good idea to find a setting that works for your night images, and then routinely stick with it to achieve better post processing consistency, and workflow. I choose to shoot in a daylight setting. Not only do I generally prefer the tonality, but if I choose to use some low level lighting (LLL), I know that my daylight rated LEDs will blend well with the ambient starlight. ******************************** Essential Gear: @nikonusa D810, Z6; Nikkor glass; @reallyrightstuff BH-40; TVC-24L; @lee-filters system; @djiglobal Mavic 2 @toyotausa 4Runner; and my dogs, who always keep it lively🐾. ******************************** #visitnevada #explorenevada #myrrs #whyihike #astrophotography #nightsky #milkyway #ig_southwest #night_captures #exploreourearth #night_excl #adventureenthusiasts #longexposure_world #nightscaper #pictureline #milkywaychasers #longexposureshots #ig_shotz_le #nights_dreamworld #igworldclub_astrophotography #longexpo_addiction #landscapephotography #supreme_nightshots #landscape_nightscape #landscapelover #nightphotography #night_shooterz #amazing_longexpo #longexpoelite #ig_southwest

“Memories” — I can imagine children running through the fields, as their father tends the cattle, and their mother prepares a family feast. Now, all that remains are the humble structures of a bygone era. Photo Tip: There were a fair number of people shooting this scene that morning. I walked around behind them for a time, until I found my chosen spot. However, quite a number of folks left as the sun began to graze the Tetons—while the light was just getting good! Don’t be intimidated by a scene with a wide dynamic range. Learn how to bracket your shots (from a tripod), and blend them in post processing.

“Refreshing” — “re’freSHiNG: Adjective: serving to refresh or reinvigorate.” The definition is perfect, since that’s exactly what I feel when a morning like this is served up. Bring it on! Photo Tip: This is my first post using my @djiglobal Mavic 2 Zoom as a camera. I plan to post more shots in the future, and could never have gotten this composition from the ground. I have always used my drone mostly for video footage. Seeking new perspectives is a goal for me this year.

“Out There” — Reaching for the next milestone, traveling through ancient lands, feeling the chill as the last rays of sunshine slip behind the distant ridge. A day well spent in a land most beautiful—until tomorrow . . . Photo Tip: The rules of composition would say that this image is poorly composed. For one the subject, or truck, is about to drive out of the frame on the far right. But in this case, that was my purpose, to suggest that the traveler is eager to press forward. There is a bit of mystery implied, of what lies beyond. But know the rules of composition, so you know when to break them. ******************************** Essential Gear: @nikonusa D810; Nikkor glass; @reallyrightstuff BH-40; TVC-24L; @lee-filters system; @djiglobal Mavic 2 @toyotausa 4Runner; and my dogs, who always keep it lively. ******************************** #adventureanywhere #rei #landscapephotomag #myrrs #nikonnofilter #california_igers #landscape_love #californiaroadtrip #landscape_hunter #nikon100 #adventureenthusiasts #getoutmore #ig_southwest #exploremore #findyourpark #southbysouthwest #ig_naturelovers #fstoppers #ig_southwest #discovery #whyihike #californiaroadtrip #nature_good #adventurephotography #roadtripusa #splendid_nature #travelusa

Stormy weather can be oh so tasty! Not so stormy that you sit hunkered down in your tent or vehicle, in fear for your life, but the cool kind of stormy that makes your snaps look megalicious!

“Over the Top” — Roadtrips are all about driving, exploring, and seeing the unexpected. Add to that some rockin’ tunes on the radio, a couple of fantastic furballs (my🐾girls), and you have a recipe for a good time! Some of the most action packed roadtrips in my 4Runner have happened this year. I spotted this small herd of goats navigating a canyon, always incredible to watch them scale the vertical walls at dizzying heights. I pulled over, grabbed the 70-400mm zoom, and hoped they would come closer. Sure enough they did! This was shot hand-held with my Nikon D810. Photo Tip: To capture tack sharp telephoto wildlife shots hand-held, follow this recipe: High shutter speed, this was shot at 1/1000, which helps to overcome animal movement and camera shake. If there is not enough light, and you’re wide open, lock in your aperture, shutter speed, and set ISO to Auto, that allows the ISO to adjust your exposure. VR on, if your lens is equipped. Brace your elbows into your chest, and firmly press the eye cup to your head. Avoid breathing as you squeeze off frames. Squeeze, don’t stab at your shutter release button with your finger. Set your camera to high burst rate. I don’t “spray & pray,” but I did shoot about 20 frames to get this shot. . . . #wildlife_shots #adventureenthusiasts nature_up_close #naturephotos #natures_hub #nature_good #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeonearth #nikonnofilter #outdoorphotography #rei #nationalparks #toyota4runner #nationalparkservice #toyotausa #nationalparkgeek #pictureline #westbysouthwest @toyotausa @malonetoyota #animals_captures #wildlifephotography #ig_southwest #natgeoyourshot #discovery #adventuredogs

“Rainbow Dreams” — It’s not always that you can watch a storm that is right in front of you, doesn’t really affect you, yet gives you a spectacular show for a long period of time. Well, that’s exactly what happened when I visited the Alabama Hills one afternoon. In the western U.S., this year has been marked by winter fighting with spring, and now winter is fighting summer, which is right at our doorstep. So this trip was marked by unsettled weather, which is a photographer’s dream! On this particular afternoon, storms enveloped my location, and while I had to dodge a few downpours, it was dry for much of the afternoon. The clouds, and squalls, and sun moved quickly, and there was something to see all around me. But this rainbow, this magnificent, bright, bold rainbow, just hung in the sky forever, it seemed. Just awesome! You can see the sheets of rain in the sky appear as banding in the image. What a great time outdoors, and so glad I can look at an image like this to so vividly recall the moment. Photo Tip: While this rainbow was one of the boldest and brightest I have ever seen, I still chose to use a circular polarizer, which cut some of the sun’s glare from the heavy rain, producing a more defined rainbow. ******************************** Gear: @nikonusa D810; Nikkor glass; @reallyrightstuff BH-40; TVC-24L; @lee-filters system; @djiglobal Mavic 2 @toyotausa 4Runner; and my dogs, who always keep it lively. ******************************** #westbysouthwest #findyourpark #usparksandmonuments #adventurenthusiasts #wondermore #earthoutdoors #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #lifeofadventure #amongthewild #alabamahills #nature_perfection #got_greatshots #earthoffical #earthpix #awesome_earthpix #earthfocus #earth_shotz #jaw_dropping_shots #eclectic_shotz #visual_ambassadors #landscapephotography #hubs_united #awesomeearth #splendid_earth #wonderful_places #rainbowphotography

“The Portal” — I love being swept away in the moment—drawn in by a scene. To stand in an ancient land, and touch nature’s monuments, is richly rewarding. On this particular evening, I was alone at this normally busy place. Ascending the stairs, I saw the light begin to stream through the arch. What a moment to capture—what a memory to hold. Photo Tip: I purposely underexposed this shot so as not to lose detail in the highlights. I easily brought back the shadows in post. 🔶NEW!
