McWay Sunset

Can’t believe its been almost 3 years since I’ve been to Big Sur so I’m excited to be back there this weekend to try and capture some shots. Probably be hanging around all the popular areas since I didn’t get many shots from last time. Looking forward to some hiking and hoping for some good weather. Here is one from 3 years ago while waiting for sunset at McWay falls when the sun was still shining on the falls. Portrait orientation to capture the clouds in the sky.

Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16 @12mm f/11, 1/13 sec, ISO-100

"Insert Rocky theme song here"

A shot of two hikers who made it to the top of the Mesquite dunes in Death Valley National Park. These sand dune are not the easiest to walk on but quite fun to explore. My wife and I were walking the dunes the day we arrived when I spotted these two. The lady in blue put her hands up as if she just conquered them so I had to snap a shot.

POV

Taken from a trail junction when we were hiking in the Paradise area of Mt. Rainier National Park. We just made it up the backside of the skyline trail and took a break where it met the Golden Gate Trail. There were some nice Lupine growing on the hill so I got up close and snapped a few hand held shots before heading back to the lodge. I was trying to wait for a clear break in the clouds to see the mountain but this is the best it got while we were up there.

Wavy Sunset

The Fire Wave is a POI in Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park. We were able to spend a few hours here exploring the last time we were in Las Vegas. The park has lots of cool rock formations and slot canyons and I setup for sunset at one of the more popular photo spots. Until a little while ago, there was no formal trailhead for this hike and it is still not widely publicized by the park. It’s only a short hike out and it kind of resembles The Wave in Arizona. The sun managed to break through just a tiny bit for sunset on the right which produced a bit of color. I’d like to come back and try some astro shots here one day.

Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16 @ 13mm, f/11, 2 blended exposures of 1/2.5 sec and 2 sec

Sunset over the Salt Flats

A 3-image horizontal panoramic of the Badwater salt flats in Death Valley National Park. I know panos don’t show that well on IG but I like the depth of this image that the foreground creates. You can pretty much face any direction and have an interesting foreground, but it was cool having the good light right over the mountain in the back.

3 shots with: Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16 @11mm, f/14, 2-exposures blended for the sky/foreground at 1/5 sec and 1/40 sec

Postcard Shot
Just one of those standard postcard shots from the LA Cruise Terminal in San Pedro while @half_tone and @yanaga310 were getting shots of the watershow. Wanted to get the reflection of the bridge and terminal sign but keep out all other distractions such as cars and some of the food stands they have there now so I decided on a vertical crop. Had to get real low to get the reflections and was almost just going to set my camera on the bench but I found a way to set it up low on the bench with my tripod half hanging off on the ground.

Twilight Blue
I’m a landscape photographer at heart so I love the wide expansive view to give a sense of the environment and surroundings. Sometimes this carries over to my cityscapes to show the view I am seeing when I snapped the photo. Taken at the beginning of blue hour from Kenneth Hahn Park. Shooting alongside @half_tone
