Seljalandsfoss Waterfall South Iceland. I manually combined several images in HDR process. The spray was horrible behind the waterfall. I was wiping off the lens between every shot. Most were ruined by spray anyway. I had enough good takes to create this image. More details here:

I go by the nickname of “Mish” which is simply the first two characters of my first and last name. I have had about 80 magazine or book covers, most of which were from Wisconsin, Michigan, or Illinois. I love to travel with my wife, best friend, and soulmate Liz.


Selfoss – Waterfall – North Iceland. Spray was a huge problem. Neutral density filters would have helped. I inadvertently had ISO higher than I would have liked. More details here:

Humpback Whale Breaching. We were in a tiny maneuverable watercraft. If I had to do this again I would have chosen a larger ship for a more stable platform. Autofocus on the 6D is not that great. I now have a EOS 5 Mark IV. I should have used a larger ISO. I discuss whale watching here:

Puffins at Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs. No other location in Iceland comes close to the Látrabjarg experience. One can get within a couple of feet of amazing birds simply by approaching low and slow. More details and images here:

Zion National Park – Subway Trek Part One – Archangel Falls. Notice the viewpoint angle. I was very low and very close to the waterfall, no more than a foot away. I was also inches above the river bed. In the group I was with, the photographers were all standing up, taking pictures at eye level. Further details here:
I have more Zion images coming up on my Blog. Here is another one from the Subway trek:
