Watching the sun rise somewhere along the back roads of Arizona…
Wandering through the Four Corners region (think I was in Arizona when I shot this) on a spring morning…
HDR (high dynamic range) image created from three exposures.
Navajo Dam, New Mexico, on a spring evening…
HDR (high dynamic range) image created from seven exposures.
A spring afternoon in northern Arizona…
HDR (high dynamic range) image created from 3 exposures).
Why do I shoot into the sun? Can’t help myself. Noticed a sundog as I was wandering around northern Arizona one morning. The sun itself is blown out in the image, but it matches up nicely with the hole burned in my retina as I set the shot up. 😉
HDR (high dynamic range) image constructed from three exposures.
I was exploring a Montana country road on a hazy summer afternoon. Conditions weren’t the best so I took an HDR (high dynamic range) set of 3 exposures and forgot about them until today. Usually I go for more realistic results but it just wasn’t working here – so I messed around with the HDR processing to see if I could make anything of it. For better or worse, here it is…
And now for something a bit different. HDR (high dynamic range) image of the engines on an F-15 Eagle fighter.
A view from Idaho Highway 129 / Oregon Highway 3 which winds through some beautiful country between Lewiston, Idaho and Enterprise, Oregon.
Shot during a roadside rest break near Grover, Wyoming, at the end of a long day of photography. And thanks to the Wyoming state trooper who gave me some tips on good places to explore in the area (after he checked my license and insurance).
Devils Tower, Wyoming. I hiked all the way around the tower on a beautiful fall afternoon, so more shots are coming. 🙂
A chilly autumn morning at Hauser Lake near Helena, Montana.
Late morning on a cloudy autumn day, looking across Idaho farm land towards the Grand Tetons.
Relaxing by the side of the river, unwinding after work. Just another day in Montana.
Looking south from the top of Beartooth Pass, Wyoming. Summer morning view of Black Stone Lake and the Absaroka Mountains. Elevation 11,000 feet.
Owl Creek Mountains, Wyoming.
This is an experimental shot that combines two techniques. It is a panorama – four images combined to get a wide final image. Each of the images used to create the panorama is an HDR (high dynamic range) image – three exposures (one overexposed, one normal exposure, one underexposed) combined to bring out color and detail beyond what you can get with a single exposure.
Railroad bridge near Shoshoni, Wyoming.
View from the top of Beartooth Pass looking southwest. Elevation about 11,000 feet. Not quite the top of the world, but it felt like it after I hiked up a hill of broken rock to get this shot.
