In this gallery are photographs of plants, trees, forests and creeks as they interact with landscape vistas. I wanted to convey a feeling that you the viewer are here, at this place smelling the fragrance and hearing the sounds of nature at its finest. This is the most broadly themed gallery in my portfolio because it includes diverse moments, but ultimately my goal is to simply share the awesomeness of nature.
Fire Sky -- Limited Edition Release of 100
This moment happened one amazing evening in January 2015. Incredibly, all of this vibrant color is real and no saturation or color correction tools were used in post processing. By setting up near the ground, a slight ways back from the boulders I was able to focus on everything in the scene, all the way back to the ridge line. Nature needs no hyperbole and no Photoshopping, enjoy the reality. In the scene is a glacial boulder, Douglas Fir lined ridge, rolling hills and a native meadow. 16mm, f/13, ISO 100, 1/6th sec.
