an evening at crater lake (maroon bells, colorado) by maxvuong

Took this sucker in 2013 and been letting it marinate for a bit. Probably the most dramatic sunset I had during my 2 weeks in Colorado. My goal this year is to process more so that’s what I’m doing.

I’m on instagram!

and of course my fb

Now don’t go thinking about banjos and Burt Reynolds. I’m talking about deliverance from the hectic life to pure peace and tranquility!

Fall by MAPhoto

After a 3-hour rock-hopping and steep brush-crawling effort in the dark to bring some friends up to this unique vantage point of Fitz Roy Peak on this morning we were treated to an even more unique event, which occurred in the first five minutes of sunrise: The glacier in the distance frequently avalanches into the lake, dropping roaring icefalls and bergs into the water more than 2000 feet below and such an event happened to come along on this morning right in the middle of our shoot, looking much like a waterfall cascading into the lake at anything short of the highest resolutions. The Icefall added an even more dreamlike quality to this spectacular landscape.

After all the Patagonia shots these last few weeks following the fall colors down there, I was glad to have such an unusual capture.

Admittedly there was more than a small amount of post-production to get the sky and atmosphere in back of this image, something I am generally more reserved with, but here I really felt the rare scene could benefit from a few extra touches, just to be forthcoming.

Everything else in the scene comes from a single exposure at f/20.

Falling Winter by RyanDyar

A rather simple image here of Two Medicine Lake in Glacier Park. Storms hung over the mountains of the Northern Rockies for over a week and provided lackluster opportunities for shooting. The storms were so thick on this particular evening that I hadn’t even planned on shooting, I just happened to be camped out at this lake and was able to fire off a few frames as the skies started to open up briefly.

Very simple processing here, unlike my last post. Just some fairly standard adjustments in ACR, some texture work, a couple contrast adjustments, and some dodging and burning. About 10min of work.

Anyways, like everyone else in this crowded nature photography scene, I lead workshops, I teach processing instruction in person or worldwide via Skype or Google Hangout screen sharing, and have a website with images, workshop info, prints, and yadda, yadda, yadda.
