Incredible display of light which lasted for about fifteen minutes in late December 2012. It’s hard to process pictures like this to find the right balance of realism when reality is unreal.

New on 500px : oh my gush (ponytail falls, columbia river gorge) by maxvuong by maxvuong

Posted a few days ago on my facebook

First time in the PNW and I had a blast. I didn’t come away with much but I got to spend time with some awesome people. Thanks for letting me hang with ya’ll. And a huge thanks for the hospitality and for letting me crash at your pad. Oh, and it wasn’t poison oak. Just a water rash from swimming in my waders all day 🙂

New on 500px : solar array (san diego sea figs II) by maxvuong by maxvuong

http://ift.tt/1gDCBzp Here’s a story. So I noticed these plants a couple days earlier but the sunset was not that great. Few days later there is a promising sunset and I’m racing to this spot. As I pass a family of four sitting on a bench I hear an “Excuse me, can you take our picture?” I’m thinking to myself, seriously? I have all my gear jamming to a spot and out of all the people walking about they decide to ask the one guy that is most frantically trying to be somewhere. I surprised myself when I replied, “Sorry I cant! Gotta go over there!” For some reason I crack up with how one of them replied. “Wow, really?” There was so much defeat in those two words. To the family of four whom I hastily shut down. I hope you got your family photo and I hope you understand why I had rejected you so hard. Hope this picture serves as a consolation. I guess this is becoming an annual tradition. When you got no other flowers but iceplant ones, might as well make the most of it. I was very impressed the Samyang was able to focus so closely here. About 3-4 inches away (from the glass). I had to do some tripod acrobatics to get so low. If you’ve seen iceplant you know they dont grow very high so I was basically shooting ground level. I’m sure I looked a bit ridiculous but it was worth it in the end.
