Moving Into Night – Badlands

Immediately after the sun began setting, I moved to another location and captured the transitioning skies: Sunset begins, over the Badlands: As the sun sets, the clouds above took on the hues of the sunset: A short time later, […]

Colorful Badlands Sunset

Today’s post features a couple of sunset images as the sun dropped towards the western horizon, over the Badlands NP of South Dakota.  I have never seen a “bad” sunset here … ok, if it is really cloudy it might not be good sunset material.  But typically, I can always count on some really nice […]

Another Logan Pass Sunrise

Today’s image is another Logan Pass sunrise, captured during an early morning hike in Logan Pass, Glacier NP (Montana). As the sun began to rise above the background mountains, I set up to shoot the sun as it broke over the mountains. Shooting in this manner can give some nice “sun stars”: Photographic Equipment Used: […]

Logan Pass Sunrise

Today’s image was captured during one of my recent, early morning sunrise hikes at Logan Pass (Glacier NP, Montana). As the sun began to peak over the surrounding mountains, the wildfire smoke created a beautifully colored sky for the sun to try to pierce (this image is one of the images that is appearing in […]

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! […]

Midnight Sun

Good example of Alaska’s “Midnight Sun”: Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon 28-135mm f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot […]

Looking Down on Roseman

Today’s post features some of the aerial images I captured of the Roseman Covered Bridge (Madison County, Iowa) via my drone. I’m just now starting in drone photography, but I really love the potential it offers, particularly the sunrise/sunset images. Here are some of my favorite drone images of the Roseman bridge: On my first […]

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 […]
