Sunrise Hike at Logan Pass

During my recent visit to Glacier NP, I hiked at least one trail about every day. I typically like to start out very early in the morning, when the landscape is just becoming visible to the eye. Why? Several reasons. First, a lot less people out there, so I have nature more to myself! Second, […]

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

When I recently traveled to Glacier National Park (northwest Montana), I was really looking forward to some great night skies photography. What I didn’t realize was that there were some nearby wildfires and they literally created havoc with any photography that included the sky or distant landscapes! That is, except … when shooting afternoon skies! […]

Daytime Stars … Nighttime Stars

Today’s post comes from the Holliwell Covered Bridge of Madison County, Iowa. During the morning sunrise, I captured this “starburst” as the sun rose from behind the covered bridge: That evening, I returned to the Holliwell bridge to shoot the night skies over the bridge. Capturing 5 individual images, I later processed them together in […]

Sunrise From Cloud Level

On my last day of camping at Mount Evans, I drove to the summit of the mountain (quite daunting in the dark!) to capture a sunrise from the summit. The view from this vantage point was quite impressive, and the layers of clouds really helped to make this a wonderful sight as the sun rose […]

And the Beauty Just Won’t Stop

Today’s post comes from the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, along the Mount Evan’s Highway in the Colorado Rockies. My last sunrise I posted was a beauty (“Sunrise Over Upper Goliath”), but while reviewing the images later in the day (on the back of my camera), I wished I would have photographed the sunrise with a […]

Sunrise Over Upper Goliath

Another beautiful sunrise over the Colorado Rockies. On an early morning drive up the Mount Evans Highway, I pulled to the side of the road, along the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, and hiked a short distance to capture the sunrise. Finding an interesting, small bristle-cone pine tree as foreground interest, I set up the tripod […]
