Retired Couple At Double Arch

I was really struggling here to find a way to shoot this. As is often the case, the place is so overwhelming that it becomes a challenge to really get anything across. In this image I was trying to show the splendour of place along with the scale of place. I needed something for scale and a way to draw your eye into the frame. Luckily this retired couple came into the frame at the same moment as another matching pair of people in red we’re exploring inside the arch. So hopefully when you view this large your eye will be drawn into the arch and you will get a good sense of place.

This elderly couple was wandering around looking for a place to take a selfie. A selfie which they had been taking every year for the past 56 years in various places. If you look very closely you will see the woman is holding a sign with the number 56 on it. I ended up taking a photo for them while they held the 56 sign. Maybe I’ll share that one later.

Glacier Point Tree

Every now and then you find yourself in a spectacular place and it’s easy to be overwhelmed. Such is the case at Glacier Point in Yosemite. If you’re out on the hunt to make nice photographs as I am here’s a little trick. In an overwhelmingly beautiful moment just try to pay attention to the little things. One way to do this yourself is to always look behind you. In this case this I looked behind me and then noticed this gorgeous little tree off to the side. And now this gorgeous tree will come with me forever. I don’t understand why but looking behind somehow grounds you in the moment. Or at least it does for me.

The Windows Arches National Park

Arches National Park is one of the most remarkable places I’ve ever seen. This is a panorama of several photos stitched together. On the last photo of the series I managed to capture a little kid joyously running (lower right).

Mile 13 Monument Valley

Every so often you find yourself in a great place with very limited time. This was the case here. I was en route to another destination and I was very short on time. As Theodore Roosevelt said, do what you can, with what you have, where you are. So that’s what I did here. The light was harsh and the sky wasn’t ideal but this is the best I could do. It was shortly after an unusually wet period here so that’s why things are quite green.

The Girl With Red Hair

This is one those images where a little tiny person gives you a great sense of scale. It’s also fun to look for the person in the frame. Where’s Waldo style… I shot this in Yosemite National Park, United States of America on August 16th, 2015.
