Radiant Autumn

“RADIANT AUTUMN”
Grand Teton National Park, WY
September 28, 2008 

About a week ago, I posted a portfolio of “Tetons in the Fall” photographs on my website. Out of the few dozen photos in the portfolio, this image has generated the most buzz … with more than a few inquiries on how the “radiant light” effect was created. (more…)

“THE BURNING TREE”
Gallatin National Forest, Montana
May 25th, 2008

This is, admittedly, a bizarre photograph – certainly one that I don’t expect to sell very often. I can’t imagine that too many people share my sense of appreciation for the harsh beauty that is left in the wake of wildfires. Lately, I am finding the stark remains of the fire-burned landscape of Yellowstone Country to be a fascinating subject for photography. That is certainly the case with the location depicted above.  (more…)

Autumn in the Tetons

UNTITLED
Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming
September 29th, 2008

I made this photograph near the end of my recent tour of Grand Teton National Park. It’s a view of the Teton Range from a quiet forest road near the park boundary. At the time, I remember being extremely thrilled to have finally discovered a compelling combination of autumn colors (which were not abundant during my visit). In fact, I camped overnight in my car nearby, so I could be there to photograph the scene in the soft light of early morning. The spectacular color display seemed to glow in the predawn light. In fact, the direct lighting later in the morning almost seemed to destroy the colors. This is one of the reasons that I typically begin my day of shooting – throughout the year – well before sunrise.

I am in the middle of processing a massive number of photos from this trip. I’m sure there will be a nice addition of fall images to my website very soon. Stay tuned for more.

“THE WHITE FOREST”
Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming 
June 14, 2008 
 

I’ve had a few inquiries this week about how this photo was created. Although it looks like it might have been manipulated with software, the effect was created entirely at the moment of exposure – within the camera. (more…)

“LAST LIGHT”
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
September 22, 2008 

I’m currently sifting through more than 1,500 images from my recent “fall colors” photo excursion in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. It’s a monumental task, as you might imagine. In fact, most of my time is now being spent simply weeding through all of the junk images that I managed to collect during a week of all-day shooting. This year, there is a lot of junk. (more…)

Ranch House

“THE RANCH HOUSE”
Montana
August 20th, 2008 

It’s been six months since we moved from Colorado to Montana. So far, I love it here. I certainly miss Colorado, but I’m having a blast getting to know “Big Sky” country. I’ve moved from one beautiful place to another beautiful place. (more…)
