The last portfolio of New Images from our recent photo trip to New England and Atlantic Canada is now ready for viewing. You can check out the portfolio here. And, as always, all of the photos are ready to purchase as fine art prints and commercial licensing.

This portfolio wraps up the edit and processing of all new images from the trip. However, in the coming weeks and months I’ll most likely be revisiting many of the files to identify which can be processed into black and white or alternative styles. I’ve already began this procedure with a group I made early on in the trip in the Bay of Fundy. This group of images, composed of just sea and clouds, represents a more minimalist style of photography that I very much enjoy. Be sure to check back soon to see a new post regarding these photos!

I’m very excited to announce all the images from my recent Idaho trip have been edited and processed! This was a very successful trip despite having planned it at the last minute. The main focus were the beautiful Sawtooth Mountains in central Idaho near the town of Stanley. Here I was fortunate enough to arrive in time for the annual blooming of camas and other wildflowers and enjoy photographing them in several mornings and evenings of fabulous light. Also included on this trip was Shoshone Falls on the Snake River Plain, Bruneau Canyon and Owyhee River Canyon, the later being just over the border in Oregon.

Please take a few minutes to browse through the new images portfolio, there is lots to see! If you’d like to view even more check out the Idaho Gallery, here there are over 500 images, all of which can be purchased as fine art prints or licensed for commercial use.

Stay tuned to this blog as I will be posting images and stories from this trip soon, and don’t forget to use the share buttons to forward to your friends and colleagues! Thanks for looking!

It’s been a long arduous process but I finally have all the images from my recent six week trip to several western states online. In many ways this trip has been a milestone for me, first of all it was one of the longest I’ve done. Most importantly though, nearly every goal of creating compelling images in dramatic light from a wide variety of locations was met. Of course this last point had a lot to do with luck and hoping that my weather instincts were correct. In the end after all the driving, hiking, and long hours of office computer work (while the summer weather was sunny warm and beckoning), the effort paid off and, well, here they are. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I had in creating them!

There are nearly 1100 new images uploaded from this trip, including about 300 from the Palouse and Columbia River Gorge that I had put online a few weeks ago. To make viewing them a little easier, I hope, I decided to break them down into tiers. First of all you’ll see a featured slide show of 17 new images on my home page, next there is a New Image portfolio featuring 71 images from all the various locations. After that there are new image galleries from each state, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Alberta Canada. If after all that you still just can’t get enough, go to the individual location galleries for Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, Alberta. Finally, if you need to see every image I have of say Grand Teton National Park or Montana prairies use the Search Archive feature.

Now it’s time to move on to another big job, getting back out in the field and photographing alpine wildflowers. Fortunately most of the best locations for this subject are close to home !

It’s now been around two weeks since the end of my last trip and the first batch of images is now online and ready for viewing and licensing. You can check out the full portfolio of  new images here. Although the bulk of editing and processing from the remainder of the trip is still ahead this group represents a significant addition to my files. As I mentioned in a previous post while on the road, it’s been quite a few years since I was able to make a trip to the Palouse region in late spring, this year’s effort made up for lost time and paid of well. I had several instances of exceptional light and coupled with endless driving to scout good locations the final takes were beyond what I had initially hoped for. One new addition to the area since my last visit is a group of wind turbines not far from Steptoe Butte. These turbines are popping up in masses everywhere across the country and in many scenic areas can be a blight on the landscape. Here in the Palouse I have mixed feelings on the issue. I would hate to see the Palouse area overrun with these turbines but this wind farm contains a small number of units (for now) and is  set a decent distance away from most of the photographic compositions. In this instance I found them to be somewhat picturesque and was happy to add them to my stock files since photos of energy issues can sell fairly well.

Other locations in this new group are the John Day Wild and Scenic River of Oregon, Palouse Falls State Park, and a few new waterfall additions from both the Oregon and Washington sides of the Columbia River Gorge. The John Day area had mixed results, since although I wasn’t able to access several remote areas on my list I was finally able to photograph Sheep Rock in some nice evening light after a spring storm passed through. The valley Sheep Rock is situated in is a short drive from the more popular Painted Hills. I like this quiet area with the John Day River running through it among small farms and ranches, it’s not as visually dramatic as the Painted Hills but with the right light there are many spots that are worth photographing.

The next group of images I’ll be working on include Grand Teton National Park, where I had some of the most dramatic lighting of the trip, SW Montana, Yellowstone National Park, and Bighorn Canyon National Monument. Hopefully this group won’t take as long to post.

New North Cascades Images

New North Cascades Images: In my last post I spoke of how I was looking forward to going back to my photographic roots in the Northwest by spending some prime time along the North Cascades Highway. Now that I’m back and all the new images have been edited I can safely say that it was time well spent! It was wonderful to return to several spots in the Washington and Rainy Pass areas that I haven’t seen for almost twenty years, places that made me giddy with excitement and wonder in my not too distant youth.

One of these places was Wing and Lewis Lakes beneath the imposing faces of Corteo and Black Peaks. I’ve been up to nearby Maple Pass many times in the past and even made one short summer trip to Wing Lake, but I always wanted to come back in the fall and see the display of golden larches ringing the lake. Like many destinations it got put on the back burner in favor of more exotic locations that tempted me. Hiking up all the way to Wing Lake on a rough route is a bit of a grunt over massive bolder fields and a final steep ascent on a moraine, but the beauty and solitude is definitely worth it.

Another spot that I’ve neglected for too long was the Washington Pass area with it’s small subalpine meadows and classic views of one of the North Cascades icons, Liberty bell Mountain. Over the years I’ve passed by this area many times on the way to other destinations in the N. Cascades, saying to myself that someday I need to spend time here and make some good photos when the light is right. To be fair I have done this a few times but never really came back with the images I wanted. On this trip not only did I get the photos but I also saw a bull moose, only my second moose sighting in the Cascades!

Finally I returned to a place that had me aroused my curiosity every time I drove by. This is the short climbers trail up to Kangaroo Pass. Starting at the hairpin turn beneath the east side of Washington Pass this sweet little area rarely sees a visitor, and if it not were for the sound of traffic on the road you’d swear you traveled back in time before the highway was built when not many even heard of the North Cascades. It’s less than 2 miles and 2000″ elevation gain to the pass and the last ascent over the headwall is viciously steep, along the way you’ll view a new perspective of Liberty Bell and Early Winters Spires, small quite meadows, and a dry lake (in fall) in a basin just below the pass. Early on you can spot the long forgotten crash site of a small single engine plane, everything but the fuselage seemed to be carried out.

Checking the weather just now it looks like there may be a brief break in the weather, hmm, maybe I can run back up there…
