Here’s a bit of a tribute to my photographer hero: Ansel Adams. I took 3 exposures to form a brighter image with the morning light. The photograph involved a very precarious early morning climb down a slope with my camera/tripod which made for some good fun! – Enjoy
This photo is from a slightly different location than where Ansel shot his infamous Tetons with Snake river photo (trees now block that spot) but it’s very close.
I had the opportunity to observe the total solar eclipse while hiking in the Wind River Range, Wyoming. The sky was cloudy in the morning before the eclipse and I had hiked 14 miles up in the mountains to view it! Luckily, the clouds parted last minute and I was able to view/photograph the eclipse. It is truly one of my greatest memories. 8/21/2017
View of Kings Canyon National Park from my 2016 John Muir Trail hike. The photo here was taken just before reaching Bull Frog Lake on the way up to Kearsarge Lakes.
Memories of a cloud-shrouded Mt. Gould from a few summers ago. I took this photo on my way across Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier National Park. A ferry boat took us across Swiftcurrent and another ferry at Lake Josephine which led to the Grinnell Glacier trail. Oh how convenient!
Here’s a shot from my recent road trip up to Grand Portage State Park which is located at the Northeastern point of Minnesota. My photo comrade and I hiked in a snowstorm in hopes of photographing the high falls. The views were spectacular along our hike with deep canyons, rootbeer dyed rapids, and endless rolling hills of trees and rocks.
From our campsite in Arcane Meadows I was awoken with the words “You should come check out this sunrise.” I had spent most of the night fighting for sleep in the cold, but this breathtaking sunrise view from camp was beyond worth the night’s struggles. Photo from my 2015 hike up to Telescope Peak, Death Valley National Park.
