Colorado River Basin


Colorado River Basin

SHOT CANYONLANDS LAST WEEK AND HAD PLANNED ON SHOOTING DEAD HORSE POINT FOR SUNSET. LITLE DID I KNOW THAT IS A SUNRISE SHOOT AND THE SUN SET RIGHT BEHIND THE HORSESHOE OF THE COLORADO. OFF TO THE SIDE WAS SOME NICE SUNSET SIDELIGHT THOUGH WITH A...

EARLY AFTERNOON AT SUNSET POINT ON A DREERY DAY LAST WEEK. I WAS LOOKING FOR SOME ABSTRACT CONTRAST. I LIKED THIS IMAGE. HOPE YOU DO TOO.

Moss Glen Falls


Moss Glen Falls

Because of the mild winter, Moss Glen Falls is not totally frozen. This allowed me to photograph it cocooned by a blanket of ice.

Lincoln Frosting


Lincoln Frosting

A late winter storm dropped ice and snow on the high peaks of Franconia Notch. This tight view of Mount Lincoln highlighted the ice and snow coating trees and summit. A BW conversion was the obvious choice as very little color was present and the...

Rites Of Spring


Rites Of Spring

Each spring, thousands of skiers and boarders flock to the base of Mount Washington and ski Tuckerman Ravine. The tradition goes back to the 1930's and is more popular than ever today. I thought and BW treatment preserved the classic and timeless...

Ice Factory


Ice Factory

Rime ice formations don't often last long, so I quickly ascended Franconia Ridge in NH after checking weather reports hoping to catch some interesting landscapes. The southern part of the ridge (Mounts Lincoln and Little Haystack)are visible in the...

Loon Mountain Winter


 Loon Mountain Winter

The mountains near Loon Mountain clear after a fresh snowfall. Dappled sun and spotlit peaks lended the scene to a BW conversion.

Whiteout!


Whiteout!

My perfect winter day includes big snow storms and turbulent weather since the chance for dramatic images increase. Blue-bird winter days can be a bit boring for my style of photography. Wind-driven snow produced this slightly abstract image, as the...

Clearing Storm - Scar Ridge


Clearing Storm - Scar Ridge

Immense winter storm clouds created the perfect drama and atmosphere as the winter weather pulled away in New Hampshire's White Mountains. I stitched 3 images together using a zoom lens to provide greater detail in the trees of the final image. A...

Crystal Fortress


Crystal  Fortress

The winter months allow for exploration of Iceland's ice caves, as the cold temperatures help stabilize the ice and increase safety. A hole in the ceiling of the cave allowed snow to fall in and created a unique FG compositional element.

Castle Mountain


Castle Mountain

Fresh snow and clearing skies made for perfect conditions for this view of the summit spires of Castle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. I chose this upward view for the commanding presence it gives the peaks.

Perfect By Nature

The perfectly triangular summit of Alpamayo in the Peruvian Andes. The blowing snow and clouds off the summit were highlighted by the sunrise lighting.

Winter's Cauldron


Winter's Cauldron

Biscuit Basin in Yellowstone National Park offers wonderful B&W opportunities to see wildlife and hot springs under the blanket of snow. The high contrast situations and swirling steam from the geothermal vents lend themselves to interesting B&W...

Winter's Fire


Winter's Fire

Winter in Yellowstone can be magical on a cold winter day and often suites B&W images. The backlit steam in the Biscuit Basin area gave the impression of a forest fire in the winter.

Winter's Wonderland


Winter's Wonderland

A combination of freezing rain and snow produced magical conditions in NH's White Mountains. Even during heavy snows, the deciduous trees are often stripped of snow by wind, leaving snow only on the evergreens. This morning was unusual in that...

Falling Waters


Falling Waters

A spring snow storm allowed me to photograph these falls along the Falling Waters Trail without the usual ice that clogs the falls during the winter. Often ice forms on the brook before the first snow, and the flowing water is absent. I especially...

Upper Basin Frosting


Upper Basin Frosting

High contrast lighting conditions in the Upper Bsin section of Yellowstone reveal the park in new ways. Backlit steam vents lend themselves to unique creations in the winter season. The solitude of winter is a very different experience from the busy...

Ridge Lines


Ridge Lines

I was attracted to this graphic compositon while heading to another photo location one morning. The shadow lines and textures immediately made me think this would be an interesting B&W. I waded through deep snow to frame the compositon you see.

Wilson's Window


Wilson's Window

Winter in Telluride provides a clarity and simplicity to showcase a stunning landscape. Mount Wilson is an iconic peak near Telluride and a challenge to photograph in a unique way. I found this vantage point while cross country skiing, and returned...

Cloudland Falls


Cloudland Falls

Cloudland Falls is one of those waterfalls that can be a torrent during the spring, but nearly dry during the fall months. I was fortunate to time my visit after a wet snow, so runoff created some flow and snow was glued to every surface.

Simplicity


Simplicity

I found this stand of aspen isolated on a hillside outside of Telluride while snow shoeing. I returned when the sun angle accentuated the textures of the snow and the sky complimented the scene.

Glade Creek Grist Mill After Snowstorm


Glade Creek Grist Mill After Snowstorm

I lugged my 4x5 Cambo through a foot of snow to photograph this location. The journey along icy roads seemed to take forever, but it was well worth the trip! This image was shot with a Cambo 4x5 camera andIlford HP5 PLUS 4x5" Black & White Print Film.
