New on 500px : Light from Within by MajeedBadizadegan by MajeedBadizadegan

I’m dedicating this one to someone I love dearly, her birthday is today. I have watched her body slowly betray her. I have felt the darkness slowly closing in. I’ve seen fleeting moments of fear and hopelessness.

But I’ve also been witness to an incredible display of bravery, tenacity and hardiness. The stubborn refusal to allow the hopelessness to take over. The light inside her has always stayed bright, despite adverse circumstances. This one is for her.

This is a scene that happened over Sparks Lake in Oregon. A long single lenticular cloud started to disperse right at sunset to create an array of stunning cloud structures. The side light from sunset brought incredible definition and depth to the sky. Had the sun set an hour earlier, this display wouldn’t have been nearly as good.

New on 500px : Dramatic colors at Horshoe Bend by MichaelBandy by MichaelBandy

On the last night of our whirlwind photo trip we were treated to a pretty decent sunset at Horseshoe Bend. Now I won’t lie, I coaxed a lot of color out of this shot. The dynamic range was pretty crazy so I blended 3 exposures in Photoshop to achieve this shot. Either way, I hope you guys like it.

New on 500px : Winter at Deadhorse by chaddutson by chaddutson

“Winter at Deadhorse”
Deadhorse Point State Park, Utah, USA

** This image featured in the Bighorn Gallery March/April 2014**

A winter sunrise at Deadhorse Point, about 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, with the sun glowing on the distant background which is the cliffs of Canyonlands National Park.

Legend tells of horse being corralled atop the cliffs at this prominent point, high above the valley floor. As time went by some horses were left corralled without water, resulting in their deaths; thereby the site inherited the name Deadhorse Point.

New on 500px : Horseshoe Glitter by JustinGrimm by JustinGrimm

Feel free to follow, as this is the first of many images that will be added into a brand new portfolio of mine called “For the Bright”! I love the drama and excitement of an epic sunset or moody twilight image, but recently I have been focusing on shooting while the sun is casting beautiful light over a scene. Taking time to study how the light can create more interesting compositions and depth to an image is something I want to strive for in the future.

I have seen countless shots of this bend, but very few have an effective foreground that compliments the horseshoe shape of this awesome place (I dare you to find one!). Utilizing focus blending, I aligned a rock no more then 8 inches from my lens to complete the curve formed by the right cliff face 1000 feet below. I waited till the sun dropped enough to only light up the areas I wanted, and I love the natural bright frame it provided me with.

As for the image title, the glitter comes from all the tiny fruit flies in front of the lens being lit up by the sun. The full res file shows them all, plus you can easily make out boats and individual people at the bottom of the canyon. I can wait to print this for my upcoming art display!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy a more cheerful image this time around 🙂

New on 500px : Catching Monsoon Light by MarkMetternich by MarkMetternich

Taken on one of my “Chasing Monsoon Light in the great Southwest” workshops. One of those awesome definitive moments when my clients and I, all, caught the monsoon light very powerfully! Literally 3 minutes after the shot was taken we all ran to our cars as we got blasted with high wind, rain and even hail! Everyone vehamently agreed, it was worth it! 🙂

My processing techniques are shared on my Video Tutorials, and more about my unique adventure workshops can be found at my website WildForLight.com

As always feel free to FaceBook me. I share a lot of behind the scenes details there.

Thank you very much for looking! 🙂
