As I’m spending this week in the amazingly beautiful Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, I thought it might be interesting to share a teaser of the images that I will be working on when I return home…
This shot is from early in the morning, as first light comes in and the sun is still hidden by the buttes behind us. This image is pretty raw and still needs work, but it gives you an idea of the beauty that we get to see here.
As Winter is beginning to reliquish its grip on New England, a look back at a beach visit from last year.
In 2015, the end of January was particularly cold and snow-filled, which made the last day of the month a perfect time to go visit the beach. There were many wonderful snow images, but this one stood a bit apart for me.
While wandering around the beach, I noticed that there were some areas where the receding water had left some rather interesting formations in the sand. Striations in the sand combined with the semi-solid salt water from the cold, created this wonderful view from a low angle (I laid down to get this angle). To my eye, this felt like looking over a sand dune toward the edge of a desert oasis, an interesting juxtaposition to the extreme cold of the day!
Hope you enjoy it as well!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D MkIII using a 25-105mm f/4L lens at 105mm. Shutter speed was 1/60 second at f/10 and 250 ISO.
