This shot was taken at the end of the morning asand I were standing around talking about photography. I was fighting the mist on my filter and was a bit tired so I decided to step back a ways and do a couple shots with a longer lens to capture some of the detail in the falls. When I looked at this shout I couldn't help but see milk. However, it was the layers in the moss and rock behind the water that I really liked.
This shot is of the lower portion of the falls, you can see the main falls in the background in the upper left. Getting down to shoot this is not for the faint of heart as there isn't much of a trail and the ground isn't always as stable as it appears and the whole thing starts with a climb down a short cliff face. But the journey is totally worth it as the view is outstanding.
Here's a shot of Nicole from this past weekend during our shoot up near Rowena, OR in the Columbia River Gorge.
One thing that Nicole brings to the table, besides her amazing photography, is her breadth of knowledge she shares through her books and her amazing LR presets. If you're interested in seeing what I'm talking about check our her blog and her store at:
So why did I post a photo of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley while I'm in Florida? Well, it's because the one geological fact of Florida that has struck me thus far is its utter flatness, I think the highest hill I've driven over was five feet high. Although it's flat, I will say the stark weather changes each day have been interesting. My first day here the rains welcomed me as I dragged my bags into the hotel. I was soaking wet in mere seconds. And as an Oregonian, to say that the rain here is impressive, that means something.
Happy Humpday everyone!!!
This shack sits at an abandoned mine at the end of a road that truly tested our rental car. We made it most of the way before having to hoof it the rest. It's fun to get out and explore some of these lesser known places and to wonder what life was like for those that worked here.

When your the first one at the tulip field in the morning what do you do? Well, all my experience so far tells me that you light paint. So this morning, day 2 of shooting withat the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, I was again the first one there so I pulled out the flashlight and started to play. You can see that during this shot a couple other people arrived and drove straight through my shot. As much as I wish it was, that isn't a laser fence, it's the tail lights of the new arrivals.
In this image I blended in a shot of the sky, from a few minutes after the light painting, with the light painted shot of the tulips and tractor using Perfect Mask and added some color to the sky using Perfect Effects from's Perfect Suite 7. The final touches were done in LR4.
