sunset at St. Mary Lake, Glacier national park, MT

It was last light before heavy rain at St. Mary Lake, Glacier national park. I had to pack my gears after this shot before it getting wet.

Maybe there isn’t so iconic symbol of a city like that. It’s very different when you see it in person, I promise you

New on 500px : Spirit of Maine by BenjaminMWilliamson by BenjaminMWilliamson

It felt so good to get out and shoot this morning. I haven’t made too many sunrises in the past month or so, mainly because the light hasn’t been too promising, but also because I haven’t had the will to deprive myself of sleep. The rewards are evident, but it’s just plain hard to get up at 4 AM.

4 AM it was when the alarm went off this morning. I rolled out of bed and checked the satellite images on my phone. The clouds looked good for a dramatic sunrise, so I considered my options. The skies were clear from Augusta to Belfast, so heading Northeast wasn’t looking good. I-295 South would take me to the better light. After driving for a while, I could see the break beneath the bank of clouds was fairly far south. This meant that I would need to go further south. Portland was my first thought, but Old Orchard Beach was growing in my mind.

What I’m saying here is, whenever I plan for a shoot, it’s always contingent on finding the best light. If I go to sleep thinking of great shots around Camden, as I did last night, but I wake up to find that the light looks like it will be better to the south, south I go. Anyways, Old Orchard seemed like the best option for good light, but as happens time and time again, I felt a strong pull to visit Portland Head Light.

I usually park outside the gate at PHL and walk in, but for some reason the gate was wide open at 4:45 AM! Nice. Scouting shots and compositions is always a joy here. I had in mind a panorama of the horseshoe-shaped cove on the more popular side of the lighthouse, but as the light began to really blow up, I was having difficulties panning the head on my cheap tripod. If there was ever a wake-up call for upgrading to better gear, this was it. I was wasting precious time and the sunrise was quickly becoming epic.

I did what I could with the pano, but the amount of bracketing required to get the shadowed foreground and lighthouse and blazing sky properly exposed was too much. I quickly reviewed the h

New on 500px : Podere Belvedere, San Quirico d’Orcia by edwinkremer by edwinkremer

An iconic farmhouse that perfectly represents the Tuscan idyll, situated in the Val d’Orcia, just outside San Quirico d’Orcia, one of the most beautiful and charming medieval towns of the Val d’Orcia, located to the south of Siena.

Visiting this place was like a dream come true. Sure, it is the most photographed house in Italy, but frankly, I couldn’t care less. This morning’s light show presented by Mother Earth was simply mind blowing and a great relief after the steady rain of the evening before. I used a Lee ND0.9 Hard Grad filter to correct the exposure for the sky and the hills in the far distance.
