Deaming of Spring

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
Every winter I get this feeling about halfway through the month of January, I am ready for spring! This year winter  feels especially long, and in fact it has rather felt like spring most of the winter. It’s been mild, way too mild. No ice, no snow, no frozen waterfalls.  Without the wintry white stuff …

Behind the Falls, Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
Last spring I had the chance to visit a little known waterfall in West Virginia. I have been down to this location twice before, but the conditions were never right and thus I was unsuccessful in capturing a compelling shot. This waterfall and a series of several others are in Blackwater Falls State Park in …

Coral Cove Sunset, Jupiter Island, Florida

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
Arriving on Jupiter Island in the early afternoon I went straight to Coral Cove to scout out this location. I was surprised at how little an area of rock it was. I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting, but it seemed like it would have been more expansive. At any rate, the rocks are …

Arch Angel Falls, Zion National Park
This past November I visited and photographed one of the Southwest most beautiful locations, the Subway in Zion National Park. It wasn’t my first time. About ten years ago I camped down in the Right Fork of Left Creek and spent two days hiking to the Subway from my camp. It was an amazing experience …

Grand Prismatic

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
After my Grand Teton Workshop ended last week I encountered crystal clear skies on what was to be my last shoot before catching an early  flight the next morning. Not wanting to waste any opportunities to make an image, myself and Richard Bernabe headed north into Yellowstone National Park to work the geothermal geyser basins …

Sunset from Little Stony Man Cliffs, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
I’ve visited Little Stony Man Cliffs at least a dozen times before, sometimes with clients and sometimes alone. They face due west and therefore make a great location for sunset and later afternoon light. In all the years before, I have never been able to come away with anything truly epic from this spot, so …

Thunderbird Mesa

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
While out in northern Arizona this past July, on assignment leading a private tour for three of my East Coast clients, we spent an evening up at Stud Horse Point outside of Page. The rocks over to the right away from the main group of Hoodoos have always fascinated me, but I have never had …

59th Street Sunrise
This past weekend I led a workshop on the southern New Jersey Shore based out of Cape May. We were chasing a few things including a dramatic sunrise at one of my favorite locations on the shore, the broken down fishing pier on 59th street in Ocean City, NJ. I have been trying to produce …

Raging Elakala Falls

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
The water levels this past week in West Virginia the highest I have experience in the spring. I took advantage of this and found some new perspectives on often photographed locations like this B&W image of Elakala Falls in Blackwater Falls State Park. The light was dreary and the water was so stained with yellow …
