Photo taken at: South Coyote Buttes, Cottonwood Cove

Photo Caption: “Little Tree, Big Shadow” – Arizona
.
This was photographed in April of 2007 on one of 2 separate hikes I did in Coyote Buttes, Arizona that month. .
I really love the light and shadow in this photo and how Mother Nature always finds a way to create life where none is expected. .
The small tree has no business growning where it is in the middle of sand – yet there it is healthy and alive as ever.

Teewinot Mountain – Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date: 03-05-2017

Grand Teton National Park, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Grand Teton National Park

Photo Caption: Sun rays from a setting sun light up the peaks of Teewinot Mountain at @grandtetonnps in June.
.
Teewinot towers above Cascade Canyon and Jenny Lake and it’s name comes from the Shoshone word meaning “many pinnacles”. Fritiof Fryxell and Phil Smith named the peak when they successfully completed the first ascent of the mountain in 1929. It has an elevation of 12,325 feet.
.
The photo was photographed with my Sony a7R camera and Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm Canon EF lens.

Phillips 66 Sign, Instagram post date: 03-03-2017

, Instagram post date:

Photo Caption: If you saw my “Frontier Gas Station” photo that I posted earlier today (check out my profile feed if you missed it) and wondered how it looks inside, here it is!
.
Everything outside is old and rusty. Inside everything is restored and looks amazing!
.
This was photographed and processed 6 years ago. It is a 9-photo HDR image. Back then I was a little heavy-handed with the HDR at times. If I processed this again today it would probably look completely different.
.
Have you ever noticed that with your own photos? That photos you processed and loved years ago would look completely different if you re-did it today? Let’s hear about it in the comments! 😄

Frontier Gas Station – New Mexico, Instagram post date: 03-03-2017

, Instagram post date:

Photo Caption: “Frontier Gas Station” – New Mexico – Driving my RV from Colorado back to Santa Fe, NM I drove past this old gas station along a back road and had to turn around and photograph it.
.
What a feast for the eyes and a trip down memory lane with all of the fun items to look at in this photograph. This location has become a favorite of mine as I
regularly return to photograph and bring my photo workshop students to it.
.
This was photographed in full color and I converted it to a black and white, gave it a slight sepia tint, and selectively let some of the original color come back through. It really made the pumps stand out from the background. What do you think?

Scripps Pier, Instagram post date: 02-28-2017

Scripps Pier, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Scripps Pier

Photo Caption: “Scripps Pier” – California. At the time I had been traveling to the San Diego, CA area for art festivals for 4 years already and in 2010 I finally travelled the few remaining miles to the west coast to photograph in the La Jolla Area. .
This image was the result of a 3.5 minute exposure photographed after sunset. I was up to my waist in the ocean water with my tripod legs stuck deep in the sand through the water during an outgoing tide to photograph this scene. The hardest part was making sure the tripod stayed still during the long exposure – not an easy job with the tide and soft sand.
.
What similar challenges have you had with your photography?

Mather Point Sunrise – Grand Canyon National Park, Instagram post date: 02-27-2017

Grand Canyon National Park, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Grand Canyon National Park

Photo Caption: “Mather Point Sunrise” – In 2006 I visited @grandcanyonnps for the first time ever. In fact it was the first time I was out west except for a trip to CA. .
This photo was taken the very first time I had seen the Grand Canyon – a beautiful sunrise photographed at Mather Point. I will never forget the feeling seeing the Canyon for the first time – a life changing experience. It was so inspiring in fact that 6 months later I ended up moving from Cape Cod, Mass. to Arizona so I could continue photographing the West.
