Eagle Falls at Sunrise

Eagle Falls at Sunrise - Canon 5D2, 24 TS-E, f/14, 3.2s, ISO 100
The first light of the day lights up Eagle Falls, on the shores of Lake Tahoe.  I made this image in June of 2011, stopping off in the area for a morning shoot on my way back from Grand Teton.  The combination of very warm morning light and the graduated filters I was using makes the image very warm.  The warmest light was in the first 1 minute of the sun coming up from the other side and though it doesn't light up the entire waterfall evenly it was better to make the image then than to wait as even just a few minutes later the light had cooled off considerably.

Hollow Falls

Hollow Falls - Leica S2, 30mm, f/16, 1.5s, ISO 160
This is Hollow Falls at the North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve in California.  I haven't had the chance to return there since 2012 but that one hike after a storm was one of the most productive for me in terms of waterfalls.

Big Sky Country

Big Sky Country - Fuji XE-1, 14mm, f/8, 1/600s, ISO 200
I figured that there was a good reason Montana was called "big sky country" but it wasn't until I drove through the state last summer that I experienced just how incredible it was.

Full Moon


The night before the eclipse about a week and a half ago, I set everything up and did a quick test exposure to make sure that everything would be ready to go at 3:30 am, maximizing my sleep time.  This was the test exposure, it was clearer that night than in the morning so there's more detail captured.

Eclipse

Eclipse - Sony A7s, Canon 200-400, 1120mm, f/11, 1/5s, ISO 12800
The last time I photographed an eclipse was nearly three years ago, so when I learned of the one this morning, I decided to sacrifice sleep and do it again.  Part of the eclipse got interrupted by some thin, wispy clouds here but at least the whole thing was visible with the moon high in the sky.

Tomato season is over and this year our plants' production was plentiful.  The cherry tomatoes are still continuing to produce, though at a much slower rate.

Calgary from the Air

Calgary from the Air - A7s, 35, f/5.6, 1/640s, ISO 100
A view of Calgary, Alberta, Canada from the air.  I made this image about two weeks on quick trip up to Calgary.  You can see the tall buildings of downtown Calgary in the middle of the frame.  The blue just below is the Glenmore Reservoir and directly opposite that behind downtown is the airport (easy to see when zooming in).  The Bow river can also be seen snaking its way through the city (easier to see on the right side).  Finally, at the bottom is prairie, something Alberta is well known for.
