Canyonlands

Location: Canyonlands National Park, Utah

When did you take this photograph? September 21, 2012

Equipment:
Nikon D3, Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED, B+W Circular Polarizer, tripod

Describe how you got this photo.
When composing this photograph, critical sharpness from foreground to distant horizon was important. I shot this at f/32, ISO 50. One is advised to observe the exposure in these parts, for the tendency is to over-expose in the belief that the landscape is less bright than it really is.

Maroons Bells

Location: Maroons Bells, Colorado

When did you take this photograph? September 13, 2011

Equipment:
Canon EOS 5D, Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens, ND Grad, tripod

Describe how you got this photo.
The fall is my favorite time of year to shoot the Maroon Bells , which is the most photographed peaks in all of North America. Maintaining receptivity to the changing light conditions is essential, as exposure times decrease quickly during sunrise. Having my 1-stop, 2-stop and 3- stop ND grads out and ready is key for maintaining a balanced exposure as the sun rises.

Denali

Location: Denali National Park, Alaska

When did you take this photograph? August 14, 2011

Equipment:
Canon EOS 5D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lens, B+W circular Polarizer, tripod

Describe how you got this photo.
The window for fall colors in Denali National Park moves quickly and is often times unpredictable. The pictured gravel road is the only road in and out of this incredible landscape.
