New on 500px : Storm on Glass by landESCAPEphotography by landESCAPEphotography

Taken deep into the backcountry of Area 51, aka Sequoia National Park. I was amazed at how still the water could be during a storm.

Thanks for looking!

New on 500px : Taken for Granite by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

I normally try not to post similar images from various shoots, nor do I really enjoy punny titles. However, my time spent near glacier point in Yosemite offered some pretty incredible light, and came with some unfortunate news. I arrived here in the early afternoon after photographing in Yosemite valley and just didn’t know what to do. It was fairly mild outside and I didn’t feel like hiking by myself, and I drove back and forth up the road just wondering if its going to be worth sticking up around here for sunset and then stars later on. I had a near three hour drive back across the park to get to where I was camping, but I was in the area, and ultimately stuck it out. I parked on the side of the road, and walked across where there was a really nice view overlooking Yosemite. I still had about six hours until sunset, so I decided to take a nap on the rocks as I peered out to this view. It was somehow one of the most comfortable naps I’ve ever had, yet it didn’t last long. As many people approached the view they kept waking me asking if I could take their photo. I met a lot of interesting people up here, and its one of those things I enjoy most about traveling. A couple ladies had noted to me that I had a visitor while I was “sleeping”, I guess there was a squirrel staring me in the face just inches away, but luckily decided to leave me alone. Finally, the light was starting to get good. The clouds were starting to spread apart. The entire time I was thinking that this was all a dream. How could I be so fortunate to be able to witness such a vista? Yes, its a fairly popular one that has been photographed hundreds of times, but can you really blame those who keep coming here to replicate what they have seen? I will tell you, that no photo will do this scene justice. You just had to have been there, like most photos. I never take for granted the beautiful landscapes that surround me, because I’ll never know if this is the last one I’ll see….They can disappear without warning…

New on 500px : Horsetail Fall Sunset by WJMcIntosh by WJMcIntosh

This was taken in Feb of 2014 on an evening where dozens, if not hundreds of photographers were arriving to make an attempt at the annual Horsetail Fall “firefall” effect, made popular by Galen Rowell. As I have shot both the traditional North and South side spots over the last couple of years, I set off in hopes of climbing above the treeline and after many bumps and bruises, finally managed to scramble up a steep bank to take this bracketed shot. I could hear the park rangers yelling at people with their bullhorns as I was shooting. Not sure if I will make this attempt again as it was a bit dodgy getting up there without a trail, but fun to explore just the same. I felt GREAT as I was shooting and had this view all to myself….and then it got dark. Not so great going back down. 🙂
