I’ve been up to the Mount Baker area quite a few times this winter and haven’t lucked out once photography wise. I think Baker’s best season is during winter so it’s well worth the drive up even if I don’t come back with a photo, but I can’t deny that it isn’t a little demotivating after so many attempts. I’m a firm believer that photography is largely a numbers game and the more time you spend out, the more likely you are to finally get some good light. So, with that logic I should be due for some nice light any day now ;) Anyways, this shot here is from a few years ago after heavy snowfall when I lucked out and got a beautiful light show.

Throwback to that one time in Arizona when the light went OFF!  The scene you see here is Three Sisters peak in the Superstition Mountains. The area is filled with cacti including my favorite: teddy bear cholla (the ones closest in the foreground). While I love the name, whatever you do, don’t snuggle up next to one like a teddy bear! I scouted out this area for a couple hours before sunset and eventually found this comp which I hadn’t seen shot before. I really enjoyed this spot and love all the different types of cacti in the scene. There are the deadly teddy bear cholla, the common saguaro (big tall ones) and what I believe are large barrel cactus. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of my oldest photos taken around four years ago of a seastack on Rialto beach which has since collapsed. The entire trip had been cloudy and raining, but for a brief moment a gorgeous display of color found its way through! I’d been shooting this seastack from the other side and didn’t even notice this light was happening until my wife pointed it out to me. She had just been sitting there watching this gorgeous light show and after she had her fill, decided okay....I guess I can finally let Ross know what’s going on!!! I managed to quickly setup and grab a few shots. You don’t see many sunrise shots from our PNW coast, but I’m glad I was there for this one.

Join me at Mt Rainier this August to photograph massive mountain peaks, fields of wildflowers, alpine streams/waterfalls, and to experience some of the darkest skies the PNW has to offer. It will be 3 days and 2 nights of shooting in a photographers paradise! While the workshop will have a heavy focus on shooting the night sky and is scheduled around the best time to shoot the Milky Way alignments, we will also be shooting sunrises and sunsets at some of the parks best locations. I have spent countless hours exploring and enjoying this park and can't wait to share it's beauty with you! For more information, visit link in bio or www.rosssvhphoto.com

With all this rain the PNW is getting I can’t help but think back to my recent trip to the Southwest when I went two weeks with only one day of clouds. During the trip I was wishing for more clouds, but right now I would be okay with some warm, sunny, bluebird days! Anyways, nothing too crazy about this shot! Some of those incredible lines you know you’ll find at White Pocket combined with a sky full of a very rare sighting on that trip...clouds

One of the smaller, but more beautiful waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge. Do you prefer the vertical or horizontal comp on this one? Waterfalls have always been one of my favorite subjects to shoot. I absolutely love moving water and I really enjoy how with the right light you can spend hours shooting. Over the last two years it feels like haven’t shot many waterfalls. In 2017 I went pretty crazy and drove all over the PNW shooting waterfalls. I am not sure why, but I have a feeling I will be visiting a lot of waterfalls this Spring and I can’t wait! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The warm, golden glowing walls high up in the narrows combined with the cool, dark blue flowing river is one of the more beautiful natural color combinations you’ll find in landscape photography. While looking for comps and good light, I spent a lot of time thinking about how insane this canyon is! It’s incredible how some water and a whole lot of time can completely change the look of a landscape. The Virgin River has been carving Zion Canyon for millions of years, a process that continues to this day. The main contributor is flash flooding, when snowmelt or rain from a sudden downpour funnels through the canyon. The result after millions of years is something you have to experience for yourself. Walls over 2,000ft high and as narrow as 10-20ft wide in some places. Hopefully you don’t get claustrophobic easily! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On my way home from the Canadian Rockies I decided to make one last stop at Morants Curve after shooting Castle Mountain. Most of the clouds quickly dissipated at Castle Mountain well before actual sunrise, so I figured I would try my luck here. It turned out to be a great decision as there were some fantastic clouds floating right around these peaks and some of the coolest ice/slush formations I’ve seen for a foreground. It took a bit longer than I would have liked to slog my way to this spot as every step I would sink into 3-4 feet of slush (thank you waders!!), but luckily the light stays gorgeous and golden for an unbelievably long time during winter in the Rockies. One final note about this area, I did hear from several photographers after arriving back home that this area down by the river is apparently off limits and you can get a ticket for crossing the train tracks. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On my final and warmest morning the temps reached a balmy -10f. There is a surprising difference between -30 and -10 and it was a much more comfortable morning. I was originally planning to head back to the location of my previous post and try for a 5th attempt, but with the clouds looking pretty clear I decided to head to the popular Castle Mountain and see what I could find further downriver. My plans to scout downriver quickly changed when I arrived and found this nice patch of ice leading right to an open puddle of water and a few clouds floating above the peak. I could tell the clouds were going to disappear soon, so I quickly pulled out the camera and did my best to compose this shot without breaking the foreground sheet of ice. With thin sheets of ice like this next to open water you also run the risk of bouncing/pressing it into the water and if that happens, say goodbye to all the pretty little hoarfrost. I somehow managed to get my camera in the right position to frame the reflection and took the shots I needed. There weren’t many clouds, but I think there were enough to help add a little to the shot. Five minutes after I was done shooting there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Canadian Rockies are an incredible place to experience during winter! I got to meet some new friends @mattymeis and @nick_fitzhardinge while also enduring -30f temps for the first time...which is indeed as cold as it sounds! Unfortunately, along with frozen fingers and toes came a thick layer of something like a fog. Even though the forecasts were predicting mostly clear skies, there was a thick haze on the horizon covering the mountains for most of my trip. Luckily, there were a few breaks and I got okay light on one or two occasions. This was one of those times! It only took 4 tries as I became a little obsessed with this area and visited it over and over again to get any good light. I love the shape of this mountain and anytime you can find open water during winter in the Rockies it’s likely there is a pretty cool shot possible, especially if you remember to always bring your waders! I think the best comp I found from this area is another 50ft or so further downstream, but unfortunately there’s a fallen tree sticking out right over the river ruining any possible shots down where the river bends. I’m still pretty happy with this comp, but maybe one day that tree will fall into the river and be swept away!

Just got back from the Canadian Rockies and I’m excited to work through a few of the images I got. The trip was mostly full of a dense layer of frozen fog from the -30f weather, but I think one or two images will turn out! While I work on those images, here is another shot from my recent trip down to Zion. This is my take on the popular Subway canyon. It’s one of the most commonly photographed spots in Zion and there are many shots similar to this one, but this one is mine. No matter how popular an area gets, there will always be something special about visiting and photographing it for yourself. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
