While out on a remote desert playa (not the Alvord however) in Southeast Oregon near the Nevada border, I was treated to one of the most impressive displays of light and weather that I have had the privilege to photograph. Thunder echoed through my tent for most of the night interspersed with the howls of a nearby pack of Coyotes. It really was one of the most surreal nights I’ve ever spent alone in the wilderness.

Anyways, I recently released a tutorial video that covers some of the techniques I use in my processing (ones that were used in the making of this image). 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!

New on 500px : Storm’s coming, at East Pole Islands (东极岛) by AnakinYang by AnakinYang

This is different angle take of a photo I uploaded a while ago. During my trip to China, I went to these remote islands about 40 miles off the coast of mainland China, called “The East Pole Islands”. Although I grew up in a bigger island city near that, I’ve never actually been to the East Pole Islands. These little islands have no sign of industrialization, unlike the rest of China, and they’ve been perfectly perserved, with very little population density. All of their economy is supported by tourism basically, and these outdoor restaurants are where they serve seafood (delicious) basically.
When I took this shot, the sunny sky was already crowded with fast moving clouds, which signaled impending thunderstorm. And naively, I thought it wouldn’t matter because my hotel was so close by. So I went to the local bar with my mates (without umbrella oops), and 30 mins after I took this shot. Thunderstorm came and we had to run back in heavy rain after a long wait for the monsoon to stop. Got all my camera gears wet, but good thing is my bag was very weather resistant, only a tiny bit of water got in. Lucky me.
