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.

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!

You can check it all out at Ryan Dyar Photography.

New on 500px : Shadow of Greatness by RyanDyar by RyanDyar

I recently reworked this file. Taking the time to finesse it a bit more with different approaches to how I managed the light. It’s a tough scene to process due to the light just going flat at this spot during sunset while in the shadow of this wall of peaks. Working the contrasts and luminosity to make things pop a bit more, while adding in a bit of glowing light up top seems to bring it back to life… but I left it dark enough that it still looks shadowy and secluded.

I teach all of this stuff online via Skype screen sharing. I have also released my first video of these series I am working on about post processing. This stuff, as well as all sorts of other stuff, can be found at Ryan Dyar Photography.
