Monuments

September 26th, 2016

Not long before sunset at Monument Valley (AZ) the sun came out and opened this atonishing view.

Oxtongue Rapids

October 21st, 2012

Over a Thanksgiving holiday I was spending some solitary time at the rapids. The hike was full of colourful leaves and this bright red maple tree caught my attention.

This shot is a composite of an exposure lasting several minutes using my Lee Big Stopper to blur the water, and another series of photos combined using HDR to freeze the leaves.

Dorset Durdle Door

July 23rd, 2016

The form of the coastline around Durdle Door is controlled by its geology--both by the contrasting hardnesses of the rocks, and by the local patterns of faults and folds.The arch has formed on a concordant coastline where bands of rock run parallel to the shoreline. The rock strata are almost vertical, and the bands of rock are quite narrow. Originally a band of resistant Portland limestone ran along the shore, the same band that appears one mile along the coast forming the narrow entrance to Lulworth Cove. Behind this is a 120-metre (390 ft) band of weaker, easily eroded rocks, and behind this is a stronger and much thicker band of chalk, which forms the Purbeck Hills. These steeply dipping rocks are part of the geological structure known as the Lulworth crumple, itself part of a broader monocline (a kinked type of geological fold) produced by the building of the Alps during the mid-Cenozoic.

White Sands National Monument

June 28th, 2018

White Sands is a photographer's dream. There are so many different shapes and shadows to use and it's fun trying to find the right layering and yucca plants to make a compelling image. The dark shadows two hours or so before sunset help define the dunes against all the white sand.

Nikon D800E.

The Galactic Center

January 31st, 2016

This composite image combines a near-infrared view from the Hubble Space Telescope, an infrared view from the Spitzer Space Telescope, and an X-ray view from the Chandra X-ray Observatory into one multi-wavelength picture.

It features the spectacle of stellar evolution: from vibrant regions of star birth, to young hot stars, to old cool stars, to seething remnants of stellar death called black holes. This activity occurs against a fiery backdrop in the crowded, hostile environment of the galaxy's core, the center of which is dominated by a supermassive black hole nearly four million times more massive than our Sun. Permeating the region is a diffuse blue haze of X-ray light from gas that has been heated to millions of degrees by outflows from the supermassive black hole as well as by winds from massive stars and by stellar explosions. Infrared light reveals more than a hundred thousand stars along with glowing dust clouds that create complex structures including compact globules, long filaments, and finger-like "pillars of creation," where newborn stars are just beginning to break out of their dark, dusty cocoons.

Misery Ridge

July 28th, 2018

Shot from the summit of Smith Rock, outside Bend, Oregon. If you ever go here I can't emphasize enough to take the Misery Ridge trail.

Morraine Lake

May 22nd, 2014

Morraine Lake, AB, Canada is the starting point of the Larch Valley hike. Hoping for better weather, a friend and I set out for a light day in the mountains. The clouds happened to offer a nice light for this shot.

Shot from a very common spot to photograph. I believe this to be a very different mood and angle than the norm, though.

Editing with HDRSoft Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom.

Canon EOS Rebel T3i, Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM.

Photo Settings: 10mm, f/16, 1/30 second, ISO 200.

Lake Ohau - Valley of the Winds

March 7th, 2017

Lake Ohau is a glacial lake in the Mackenzie Basin of New Zealand's South Island. When I arrived at the lake, the last beams of sunlight shed across the mountain range and I had only minutes to take these photos. The strong winds in this area didn't really help. Would you like to see other New Zealand photos?

Adobe Photoshop CS, Lightroom CS and waterproof shoes.

Paradise at Bacara Santa Barbara

July 23rd, 2018

Discovered this beach while camping at El Capitan State Beach in Santa Barbara, California. I recently upgraded my camera system to the Sony A7 and I was testing all types of scenarios.

Howlin at the Moon

July 30th, 2017

Peyto Lake, Canada.

Once you see the wolf you can never un-see it.

Took a 14 hour flight and drove 10 just to visit for a couple of days. It's amazing what photography can make you do. @destinsparks
