Behind The Shot: “Placid Water” By Sherwin Calaluan— Wedge Pond, Alberta, Canada

Posted By Kristan Ashworth
Wedge Pond is located in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada, and sits below Mount Kidd. This small, shallow pot lake is a great location in the fall, as it’s ringed by a variety of trees and catches the mountain’s reflection in its quiet waters. During our first visit of the season, my photo buddy Mark and …

Behind The Shot: “The Beacon And The Color Of Light” By Harry Lichtman—Grinnell Point, Glacier National Park, Montana

Posted By Kristan Ashworth

This phenomenon was never so evident to me as in an image I took in Glacier National Park during sunrise. The view …

Behind The Shot: Winter in the Grand Tetons by Nico DeBarmore — Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Sunrise on Snowy Tetons
The majesty of Grand Teton National Park is undeniable. The sheer rock faces seem to burst out from the open plains of Wyoming forming an aggressive and unmistakable sawtoothed silhouette. I’ve been there a handful of times during warmer months and now I’ve been lured back during the “dead” of winter. But if you ask me, …

Behind The Shot: “Flowerbow” by Olar Barndõk – Monti Sibillini National Park, Italy

Posted By David Alexander Willis
Meadow with flowers in the valley between the hills was covered with thick layer of fog. There was cold night with minus temperature. After sunrise fog started to disappear and I saw that huge fogbow started to be visible for 10 minutes. Picture is taken in Italy, Sibillini Mountains National Park. 2 stitched images are used because 24 mm lens was too narrow. Canon EOS 5D Mark II + Canon TS-E 24 mm 3,5L II, tripod, ISO 100, f11, 1/200s
I spent my holiday in Italy where I also visited Monti Sibillini National Park. I read from the web that June is a good time to visit as there are lots of flowers, nights are cold and days are warm. This means that mountain valleys are covered with fog and at sunrise you can get …
