Sun rays pierced through low passing clouds to illuminate the backsides of these trees. Just watching this scene put me in awe.

Natural Framing ~ Soon after shooting sunrise, Tom and I trekked through snow to this solitary tree. The wind was brutal and changing lenses to accommodate this scene was hectic -but after I set up the composition, I was really happy with this shot.
Can you spot me? I arrived to this location just as the sun had vanished behind the rocky horizon. There wasn’t another soul around for miles. When the desert grew dark and only the moon’s pale light gave visibility to the landscape, I grew uneasy. I grew up in the desert, but shooting alone with only the high desert winds was offsetting. I actually put in headphones and listened to pretty much every song Bon Iver ever wrote. I composed this first shot, exposed this scene about 5 times to stack, and then quickly made my way into the frame. My headlamp was a life saver. After about 5 or 6 more compositions, I crawled into my tent and crashed for a few hours until the first morning light came for the second image. I hope you enjoy them.
I challenged myself lastnight. I got home from work, packed the camera, and headed towards the BlueRidge mountains. From atop this summit, the sky was clear of clouds during sunset. No vivid hues of colors or dramatic clouds to please the eye. I decided I would wait until twilight and capture a clean low light foreground for a composite image. With my headlamp on, I spent about an hour practicing panoramas and focus stacking different compositions. Sure, I froze my butt off. I even knew the end result might not even be what I wanted. But I pushed through either way, knowing the experience and practice was far more worth it. Here’s just to having fun and taking an extra step even when things don’t turn out the way you planned.
The Arrowhead Mountain, Kirkjufell. Recently, I’ve broke a habit -presets. I’ve finally decided that applying presets, even my own, was just negatively impacting my work. Right from the start of post, I would apply a preset and work my way through correcting my histogram to make the preset work. Sure, I’ve had some moody photos and my “gallery” looked good, but I was limiting my photos. I was limiting what I could really bring out in them. So, from this point forward I’m done. I’m taking a new step towards my post-processing and not looking back. 🤙🏻
Personal post. I’m usually behind the camera, but some of you haven’t seen my face in years or don’t know me at all. So here’s to you all following me! I’m originally from Los Angeles, California and moved to South Carolina 8 years ago. Living in a state surrounded by forest was a living dream for me and I immediately hit every trail I could get to. I started shooting photography 5 years ago and I watched countless hours of YouTube to master camera control, techniques, and editing. Eventually I developed my own style and here we are. I’m blessed to have so many people reach out to me and provide feedback on my work. On a personal note -I’ve served 5 years in the Army and I continue to serve my country proudly. Full time, I work as a Network Administrator in the IT field. I enjoy camping, hiking, and connecting with new people. Reach out to me anytime and I hope you all have a great weekend!
I’ll never forget this moment for as long as I live. I had the beach to myself and it was silent, a good silent. The waves, the chill breeze, and the pinkish hues that eventually enveloped the mountain with yellow light. . . . #icelandair #offtoiceland #nikon #discoverearth #wheniniceland #theimaged #electic_shotz #greatnorthcollective #droneoftheday #stayandwander #everydayiceland #earthofficial #whyiceland #beyondthelands_ #artofvisuals #moodygrams #fromwhereidrone #awesome_earthpix #ourplanetdaily #agameoftones #naturegeography #ourmoodydays #discovernature #nikonartists #roam #wilderness_culture #folkscenery #thegreatoutdoors #lastingvisuals
From afar, you could see a single headlamp rushing back and forth between hills and pinnacles. Setting self timers and composing for these images all night was a feat in its own. The moon exposed the rocky landscape before me -in which became my truest enemy when capturing the Milky Way. It was a night for the books. Nikon D850 // 18mm // ISO 1600 // 15 sec // 15 images for Milky Way stack.
