Totality

September 6th, 2017

I almost didn't shoot at all. I didn't have solar filters, and didn't want to risk missing anything, but I decided to pop off a couple shots during totality while viewing the eclipse from a friend's property in Madras, Oregon. It was one of the most amazing two minutes of my life. An experience I will hold close forever.

Shot with a Sony A7rii and a Canon 70-200mm f4 IS.

Icelandic Road

September 21st, 2014

Shot this photo last February near Skaftafell, Iceland. All roads in Iceland are so tempting that they want to make you a free wanderer.

Painted Plains

By nswx
April 21st, 2015

On Wednesday I spent 14 hours and drove around 700 miles chasing storms through Kansas and Oklahoma. The "cap" prevented many of the storms from producing much, but we ended the night with a breathtaking sunset that lasted over an hour! What a sight! This is a photo I took near Enid, Oklahoma while we were enjoying the show.

Sunny day over Moraine Lake

September 3rd, 2014

Taken at the beautiful Moraine Lake, just outside of Banff, Canada. This lake is also close to Lake Louise, but is often missed since the hype to see Lake Louise is stronger. Moraine is far more beautiful in my opinion. Turquoise water and cascading mountains all around.

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.

Cosmic Cliffs in the Carina Nebula

July 12th, 2022

What looks much like craggy mountains on a moonlit evening is actually the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, this image reveals previously obscured areas of star birth.

Called the Cosmic Cliffs, the region is actually the edge of a gigantic, gaseous cavity within NGC 3324, roughly 7,600 light-years away. The cavernous area has been carved from the nebula by the intense ultraviolet radiation and stellar winds from extremely massive, hot, young stars located in the center of the bubble, above the area shown in this image. The high-energy radiation from these stars is sculpting the nebula’s wall by slowly eroding it away.

NIRCam – with its crisp resolution and unparalleled sensitivity – unveils hundreds of previously hidden stars, and even numerous background galaxies. Several prominent features in this image are described below.

  • The “steam” that appears to rise from the celestial “mountains” is actually hot, ionized gas and hot dust streaming away from the nebula due to intense, ultraviolet radiation.
  • Dramatic pillars rise above the glowing wall of gas, resisting the blistering ultraviolet radiation from the young stars.
  • Bubbles and cavities are being blown by the intense radiation and stellar winds of newborn stars.
  • Protostellar jets and outflows, which appear in gold, shoot from dust-enshrouded, nascent stars.
  • A “blow-out” erupts at the top-center of the ridge, spewing gas and dust into the interstellar medium.
  • An unusual “arch” appears, looking like a bent-over cylinder.

This period of very early star formation is difficult to capture because, for an individual star, it lasts only about 50,000 to 100,000 years – but Webb’s extreme sensitivity and exquisite spatial resolution have chronicled this rare event.

Located roughly 7,600 light-years away, NGC 3324 was first catalogued by James Dunlop in 1826. Visible from the Southern Hemisphere, it is located at the northwest corner of the Carina Nebula (NGC 3372), which resides in the constellation Carina. The Carina Nebula is home to the Keyhole Nebula and the active, unstable supergiant star called Eta Carinae.

NIRCam was built by a team at the University of Arizona and Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Center.

Three Sisters

July 25th, 2014

The Three Sisters is a rock formation in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia, on the north escarpment of the Jamison Valley. They are close to the town of Katoomba and are one of the Blue Mountains' best known sites, towering above the Jamison Valley. Their names are Meehni (922 m), Wimlah (918 m), and Gunnedoo (906 m).
