Yanbu Al Nabah

Twenty-seven still images (each at f/22, 1/5 sec, ISO100, 18mm, just between 6:24 and 6:25 pm).

Taken somewhere about 50 kilometers off the Yanbu town proper. Few structures are within the vicinity and that smoke spewing thing in the background is the Yanbu Cement Company (about 6 kilometers away). We were in this spot to camp and fish, and also a chance for me to really try and experiment with the GND.

A dramatic morning storm dumped rain, hail, sleet and snow on me while I watched the sunrise over Bear Lake.  There was such a nice mix of oranges and reds up there this year :)

“Flooded Cottonwood”

Looking more like a scene from a swamp in Louisiana, these cottonwoods stood in the flooded waters of the Big Thompson River during the major floods of September 2013.  It was unbelievable to see all the destruction from the catastrophic event, but this scene reminded me that there’s beauty in everything nature brings.  A classic Colorado plains sunrise lit up the sky during the perfect reflection.
