There's blue in them thar hills.
Similar to the relationship between light and shadow, the stark contrast between the flourishing life of trees and the otherwise barren landscape of the desert creates a visual tension that can help add interest to images. Which is your favorite? at Outside

The Desert Trumpet has long been my favorite plant but a pleasing photograph has been elusive. The delicate nature of the plant made it challenging for my feeble brain to figure out how to shoot it. A couple months back I found a thick patch of the alien looking things growing in such a way i was able to get low and capture this image that I am pretty happy with. at Utah Desert

Happy Thanksgiving. Few landscapes are transformed as magically by a winter storm as Bryce Canyon. I am thankful I didnt freeze to death this morning. Shooting with @phillmonson
Sometimes the skies coorperate and other times they dont. What are your thoughts on sky replacements in images? Which one of these do you think is the "fake"? at Utah
Enjoying the spot light
I didn't know what to expect when we began walking up this canyon but we were greeted with a lot of amazing fall color and towering cliffs. About an hour into the walk I turned around to see this incredible tree perfectly framed by the canyon walls. The dilemma: the wind was blowing.
What do you do in a low light canyon when long shutter speeds are needed but the wind is blowing the tree? For this image my solution was an ISO and F-stop blend. To freeze the motion of the tree I shot it at the frame at ISO 500, f8 which allowed me a reasonably slow shutter speed of 1/4". Still longer than I'd like but fast enough to freeze most of the leaves. For the rest of the image the exposure was f16, iso 64 for 6 seconds. To blend the images I simply opened the 2 files as layers in photoshop and masked out the blurred leaves. Swipe right to see the results up close. at Zion National Park
Happy Halloween Witches!
I dont really have a Halloween related pic so here is a video of some orange trees.
Fall is over up north so we are heading south to the beloved desert for the last of the dying leaves. at Utah
