New on 500px : The alpine beauty by Victor_Liu_Photography by Victor_Liu_Photography

Being in a place that nobody would bother to visit, with spring snow covered rocks, me and two friends discovered the small waterfall, at sunset, when everything became alive, I felt like being in another world.

New on 500px : Mount Sinopah by PerriSchelat by PerriSchelat

I’ve shot at Two Medicine Lake so many times and pretty much got skunked on color and amazing light every time.

On this morning I woke to rain. Big clouds sat on top of Mount Sinopah before dawn. By sunrise the skies were clearing and the rain moved out. Clearing storms do bring such pretty light.

Mount Sinopah is famous for turning blood red when the right clouds and light reflect upon it.

New on 500px : Spring Thaw by PerriSchelat by PerriSchelat

I rode my bike 12 miles through the Many Glacier Valley to Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier National Park this year during early Spring. My main concern was avoiding Grizzly bears just waking up from a long winter. Nothing will make a girl pedal faster or sing Jingle Bells louder than the idea of running into a hungry bear.

There is a very small window in which to capture ice melt on Swiftcurrent Lake. I hoped to get Mount Grinnell reflecting in open water. The park experienced a very cold Winter with lots of snow, so I knew melting would be late this year.

The first day I rode my bike in I scouted and found conditions close to what I wanted, but the light wasn’t any good and the wind was whipping through, so I rode my bike back in a second day and found much better sunrise light and still waters.

I rode a total of 48 miles over the course of 2 days to get this shot. I like it, because I’ve never seen another one like it. Trying to be a photographic pioneer in this day and age is hard, because everybody is trying to do the same thing. I lived very close to Glacier and had photographed in the park for 6 years, so I knew nobody would be there and I’m pleased to have something that is uniquely mine.

New on 500px : Señora & Patrona de la Patagonia by wcunet by wcunet

Un paseo asombroso por la belleza de su entorno y lo que fuimos encontrando a lo largo de los casi 50 Km de camino de montaña dentro del Parque Nacional Lanín, fue el que hicimos hasta llegar el pié del majestuoso volcán Lanín. Ahí, al pie del mismo y a orillas de lago Paimún hallamos la Capilla de María Auxiliadora del Paimún, Señora y Patrona de la Patagonia.
Gracias por pasar a ver.

Best if viewed on black, so please click on the image.

Fog settles in on Bowman Lake as the last light of day shows through the clouds in the northwest corner of Glacier National Park.

Bowman isn’t nearly as popular as some of the other areas at GNP. You have to drive very slowly on long, bumpy and windy dirt roads to get to this location, but It was nice to get away from the Summer crowds for a day. My boyfriend Ryan and I had the whole place to ourselves on this evening.

Sinopah Mountain looms over Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park. This one definitely looks better viewed on black if you have a moment 🙂

New on 500px : Dark Territory by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

Processed to be viewed on black… just FYI.

I don’t expect this one to do great on 500px, as these types of shots seem to not resonate with a large audience. But this one of my favorite images I’ve put together in a while… taken in the Northern Rockies from high on a trail over looking a deep valley below during a foggy sunrise.

For me, it brings back the feeling of being there by myself on that trail, surrounded by a dark and cold mist, amongst black bear, moose, and elk… all of which I saw on this morning. It’s days like this that make Montana such a special place to me.

Anyways, I recently released a tutorial video that covers some of the techniques I use in my processing. I also lead in-field workshops, teach processing online via Skype screen sharing, and blah blah blah.

Also, I’m happy to announce that I will be co-leading a tour in March with my friend Arild Heitmann! 10 epic days of chasing light across Norway. Mountains, beaches, beaches with mountains, Aurora, long arctic sunrises and sunsets. It’s destined to be the trip of lifetime!
