Sunset along the bay in Vancouver. This was a magical night. As the sun began to dip, the temperature dropped significantly, driving most people away from the windy coastline. I had never been to this spot before and was sprinting to get setup before I missed the best light of the evening. After some route finding mistakes, I felt even more anxious. Running with a full backpack of camera gear is taxing, and must look hilarious to the everyday observer. Sweaty and out of breath, I found the overlook I wanted, aligning the small island with the sun as it dropped below the horizon. All that effort, more than worth it to get a shot like this! CAPTURE DETAILS: This is a 2 shot blend, taken with my Sony A7riii. I used a tripod and a GND to reduce the extreme dynamic range in this image. It still wasn’t enough, so I ended up blending a land shot with the sky shot to capture the full range of light and preserve the details in both highlights and shadows. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
The sunrises lately have been outrageous. What can I say, sometimes you catch the perfect moment right in your own backyard. Got up early and made the trek to this place with my friend @timmermeyer and as you can see, it was a terrific morning.
Pure Colorado magic. These stunning peaks are located in the SW portion of Colorado. If you’re lucky enough to see them during the Fall season then you know what I mean when I say...awe struck! I drove more than 8 hrs from my home in Boulder to find this scene. After a bit of route finding and a passing rainstorm, this view opened up just as the sun was setting.
