New on 500px : Zion Canyon by leland2 by leland2

Utah, southern, Dramatic panoramic of Zion Canyon in Zion National Park. Capturing the grandeur of a large landscape scene can be one of the most difficult challenges. Far to often the magnificence is lost when rendered on a small two dimensional plane. A lifetime is spent in search of ideal conditions along with beautiful light that might, among other things, create the illusion of a three dimensional space. This clearing storm in Zion National Park of southern Utah was just such an opportunity. I refer to it sometimes as the attempt to do a landscape justice. When the conditions are right, everything has to be done correctly in what can be a very short period of time. Over the decades I’ve missed far more opportunities than I’ve been successful at. It’s the nature of the game and the learning process.

New on 500px : California Glow by Shainblum by Shainblum

“California Glow”

Better on black!!!

It was incredible to watch light rays blast through the trees with fog lingering in the distance. Some scenes are just so photogenic that heavy post-processing isn’t even necessary, all it took was a little bit of contrast and some sharpening to really bring this scene to life. It’s been a pleasure spending time in the Bay Area capturing its beauty, cant wait to show you guys more.

New on 500px : Oneonta Falls by mattk by mattk

This photo is from Oneonta Falls just outside of Portland, Oregon. Oneonta has been on my photography bucket-list for years, and I finally got the chance to visit. The weather was beautiful (although the water was a bit cold) and we were treated to some light rays coming across the falls at just the right time.

I wrote a full story about my trip, along with some other photos over on my blog at: www.mattk.com

Large chunks of hail fall on us as we watch this stunning structure super cell cloud move towards us at sunset on the vast plains of Nebraska.
