Ansel Adams setting up for a shoot in Yosemite, 1935

Hiking through the fog is a totally different experience and brings a whole new character to a day in the mountains.  All you can see is the trail and forest right in front of you and the grand scenery becomes much more intimate.  The air is calm and quiet, I find it to be quite relaxing.

Star trails over my campsite in the Snowy Range of Wyoming.  This was a wonderfully peaceful and calm night where I decided to take an easy one night backpack trip into the wild.  Just before heading to bed, I set up the camera and left the shutter open all night long.

7 hours at f8, no filters

“Kebler Pass”

A valley of endless golden aspen under the snow dusted Beckwith Peaks.  This is my little secret place I like to venture off the main road of Kebler Pass, where I can always have this view to myself.  I make sure to walk down this trail every autumn to watch a sunset.
