Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse, Part 1

First in a series of the East End Lighthouse at Cape Henlopen, Delaware. For this image, I decided to put the horizon line (and lighthouse) right down the middle of the image.

Panoramic View of Blue Ridge Mtns from Pisgah Inn

Early spring view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the Pisgah Inn. No fancy sunset or spectacular clouds, just ridges stacked on ridges rolling away into the distance.

Summersville/Gauley River Falls, Part 1

On a recent climbing trip to the New River Gorge area in West Virginia, we hiked past a set of falls on our way to the cliffs along the shore of Lake Summersville. I stopped and set up my camera to make a few long-exposure photographs of the falls on our walk back to the car. Note the old wooden ladder that used to be used to access the area, and the new stairs next to it (much less scary to descend!).

Spring Storm Clouds from Devil’s Courthouse

Rain clouds approaching us at Devil’s Courthouse. The dark cloud in the distance over the ridge on the right moved over us and delivered some nice spring rain and thunder as we were hiking near Graveyard Fields about an hour later.

Panoramic View from Devil’s Courthouse

Last weekend, I took a trip out to the Blue Ridge Parkway- I stopped by the Devil’s Courthouse as some dramatic spring storm clouds were rolling in. The trees at ~4,000-5,000 feet were just about to leaf out, but not quite, so it still looked a bit like late winter on the Parkway.

Fields and Clouds at Bosque del Apache, Part 2

Mountains and Clouds at Bosque del Apache

I love to drive down to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in central/southern New Mexico and watch the cranes land around sunset. However, I’m not a wildlife photographer, so I like to arrive early to stroll around before sunset and look at the clouds, surrounding mountains, and open fields.

Sandia Ridge in Clouds

A fin of rock along one of the ridge lines in the Sandia Mountain Range pokes up into the clouds.

Sandia Mountain Winter Storm, Part 5

After shooting a several panoramas, I used my ND filter to make a few long-exposure photographs of the passing winter storm. I shot a series, ranging from 30 seconds to 6-7 minutes. There wasn’t enough blur in the clouds at <30-60 seconds, and at >3-4 minutes the clouds started losing most of their texture/blur, so I decided to share the 61s and 91s exposures.

Sandia Mountain Winter Storm, Part 4

After shooting a series of panoramas, I decided to make several single-frame photographs focused on the foothills and the patch of light on the mountains in the background. Here is one of my favorite single-frame photographs.

Sandia Mountain Winter Storm, Part 3

Another panorama of the Sandia foothills as winter storm clouds lift over the Crest. This is one of my favorite sets of photographs from the evening because the brighter foothills and clouds seem to frame the dark mountains. I can’t decide if I like the color or black and white version of the panorama better, so I decided to post both; the clouds appear more dramatic in the black and white version, and the foreground pops out more in the color version. Note the splash of light in the far left mid/background on the foothills.

Sandia Mountain Winter Storm, Part 2

Last week I posted a panorama that focused on the path in the foreground, but for the second round of panoramas, I decided to focus more on the dramatic clouds draped over the mountains.
