New on 500px : Old Paria by jwwdvm by jwwdvm

Life has conspired to keep me away from photography recently, so I processed an image from several months ago. (Yep, better if viewed on black.)

In April my brother and I camped in a wash at the edge of the road with this view of Old Paria in southern Utah. I took the foreground around 7 p.m. while the moon was still up, and after setting the alarm for 2 a.m. went to bed. When the alarm went off, I poked my head out of the tent and found the sky completely covered with clouds. Discouraged, I went back to sleep. An hour later my brother was making a racket outside my tent, and when I poked my head out I found this sky (and my brother asking something like, “Are you going to photograph this, or what?”)

New on 500px : Sunrise @ Land Of Canyons by singhmanpreet by singhmanpreet

Captured the shot just before Sunrise.
It was a 45m drive from my hotel. I had started early around 2pm to take some night shots, but to my disappointment it was cloudy when I reached there… So waited in the car for an hour and a half, hoping to see a bit of sunrise. The hike was a simple 10 min walk. I’m glad that I stayed, to capture this shot.

Its surely one of the best spots to shoot the Arches with sun coming up through the canyons. Lucky me. 🙂

New on 500px : Life in the Void by JaredWarren by JaredWarren

[Best viewed on black background!] In a remote area of the Colorado plateau is a fascinating expanse of undulating sandstone punctuated with dozens of “potholes,” some more than 50 feet deep. In many of the holes you can find pools of water and plant life, including a few with good-sized cottonwood trees growing up out of them.

I particularly love being out under the stars in such surreal locations. It’s both humbling and exhilarating staring up at our Milky Way and realizing our solar system is one of billions in our galaxy, which itself is just one of billions of galaxies in the cosmos. Quite a lesson in perspective.

The sky exposure was at f/2.8, 25 sec, ISO 5000; the terrain exposure was taken around first light of dawn, f/8.0, 30 sec, ISO 100. Thanks for looking, and I’d love to have you follow me here and on FACEBOOK.

New on 500px : Sunset at Grand View Point by christianrogers99 by christianrogers99

I traveled to Canyonlands to shoot False Kiva under the Milky Way but it turned out to be too cloudy. I guess Mother Nature had better plans that day. This shot was taken at Grand View Point on the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands.
