Catching up

 

 

northern lights over Iceland thermal area
Iceland Thermal Aurora

It has been a incredibly busy summer but now is time to catch up online and with office work. The above photo is from the one night we spent as a group searching for Aurora photos during our recently complete workshop to Iceland. The promise of clear a clear sky quickly faded as a scattered rain event moved it to obscure the aurora. Still with a little luck, a nearly full moon and concentrating on the foreground rather than chasing light in the open sky I was able to    capture something over one of the thermal areas.

  1. Finally a chance to post something from my Alaska Photo Workshop. We are in Fairbanks and the northern lights are good.
    Sometimes it is a long wait. Last night we went out at 11, it was slow and people were ready to call an end to a long day that started by photographing Denali almost 300 miles south. I elected to wait a couple of hours. About 1 am things started popping and we had two hours of none stop color. Tonight is suppose to be better 😉
    Feel free to share.

Hi, I am finally back in the office after a fun trip to do milky way photography in Arches and Canyonlands and will share some images from them but I want first to share one of our guides photos from the upcoming Iceland Photo workshop. I am really excited to be able to do this trip and be guided by  local photographer, Chris Lund.
here is a link to this awesome trip

Spring fun in Alaska.

Some of our guides in Alaska tease me about wanting to photograph cubs. Now why would anyone want to photograph cubs?

After that photo I am sure many people will think it is dangerous to be so close to the cubs and Mom will get us. The fact is AT THIS PLACE AND TIME mother grizzlies like us to be nearby. Yep that goes against everything you have heard but the biggest threat to these bears at this time is male grizzlies. They will kill the cubs so Mom will go into heat for breeding. The big males will stay way when we are nearby because they don’t want to be around people.
So when we are around photographing the cubs the mom feels safe to relax and feed.

Looking around the web I might have this trip priced to low. At least for now.
